Preston North End in 435,000 PAYE late payment wrangle with the taxman after avoiding a winding-up petition

Preston North End football club is embroiled in a 435,000 dispute with the taxman.

The club said a winding-up petition served by HM Revenue & Customs had been shelved after it had addressed older disputes, but a wrangle over PAYE still remained.

The taxman has now issued a letter informing the club of further legal action because it had failed to make the PAYE payment for May 2010, which fell due on 19 June.
