The Insured is an entity involved in generating automated, time sensitive documents for clients like banks, estate agents, etcetera.

The Insured’s systems sent out time sensitive letters on behalf of the Claimant’s clients; real estate agents in the incorrect order to householders.

The Insured's 'successor practice' notified this matter as a circumstance which it believed may lead to a claim being made against the Insured following the discovery of shortcomings in the corporate restructure undertaken by the Insured for a client. The purpose of the restructure was to hive off from the client part of its business by means of a process known as statutory demerger. The apparent shortcomings in the process mean that, unless the loss is mitigated, The client and its shareholders will suffer additional, avoidable, taxation charges. This matter is still ongoing and the Insured is working very closely with its client and the HMRC to find a solution. Solicitors, instructed by the insurer, are assisting the Insured.
