The husband-and-wife directors of a horsebox company are among four bosses of Co Tyrone companies to receive boardroom bans from the new Economy Department.

Horsebox manufacturer Belfast Supplies in Loughgall, Co Armagh, went into liquidation owing £1m in 2011. Owners Philip Edward (48) and Jeanette Elizabeth Cherry of Tullyroan Road in Dungannon have been disqualified from acting as directors for three years. They admitted to holding back PAYE and National Insurance Contributions (NIC) and not filing accounts on time. Father and son Anthony (69) and Dermot Harley (37) from Culvacullion Road in Omagh were disqualified for six years after Tony Harley & Sons in Strabane went bust owing £557,000.

The pair admitted to failing to pay PAYE and NIC over two tax years.

They also failed to pay the aggregates levy over six tax years, using the funds to trade while insolvent.
