Firm investigated over Brexit fund moves office

16 Victoria Street - the new address of the holding company

Rock Holdings Limited registers on Victoria Street

A firm under investigation by the UK's National Crime Agency, has avoided strike off action in the Isle of Man after registering a new office in Douglas.  

Rock Holdings Limited was threatened with charges of dissolution after being found in violation of Manx registry laws in December last year.

The owners of the Athol Street office, where the company was last registered, filed a declaration which told the directors they had 'no authority' to use that address.

Company Registry gave Rock Holdings two months notice to resolve its situation which prompted the directors to act and secure a valid address.

A plaque is now mounted on the wall of Consort House, a commercial premises on Victoria Street.

One of the directors of the Manx-based company is solicitor Jonathan Banks, brother of insurance mogul Arron Banks.

It is understood the Isle of Man Constabulary remains in cooperation with the NCA to investigate the legitimacy of Banks' £8 million donation to the Leave.EU campaign, the largest in British political history.
