A Bury St Edmunds bathroom business has gone into liquidation, leaving the government on the hook for a £50,000 pandemic loan.
Concept Bathrooms, which has a registered trading address at 7 Chamberlayne Road in the town, appointed liquidators from Wilson Field on May 20.
According to documents filed with Companies House, when the company went into liquidation it owed £139,574.21.
The largest creditor is Barclays Bank which provided the company with a £50,000 coronavirus bounce back loan in June 2020 — the maximum amount available under the scheme.
Under the scheme, the government guaranteed 100% of the loan to give businesses more flexibility to borrow money mid-pandemic.

A spokesman for the Sheffield-based liquidators said: “Concept Bathrooms Ltd entered liquidation due to a lack of income that would allow them to repay loans obtained in 2018/19. Coronavirus-related lockdowns also had a detrimental impact.
