Plymouth's first electric vehicle charger showroom goes bust – Plymouth Live

A Plymouth company which set up the South West’s first electric vehicle charger showroom has gone bust owing thousands of pounds in unpaid taxes and loans. AC-EC Electrics Ltd traded as Pro-Charge SW and opened its ground-breaking EV charger showroom in the Millfields in early 2020.

But by the summer of 2023 it was being wound-up voluntarily, as it couldn’t pay its debts, and appointed liquidators in September. Documents filed at Companies House revealed it was owed more than £91,000, but it is uncertain how much of this can be clawed back.

It meant that liquidators estimate just £10,200 will be realised in assets. This will go towards paying a £57,828 bill Pro-Charge SW received from HM Revenue and Customs.


It also owes an additional £11,237 in unpaid Income Tax, National Insurance and Corporation Tax. One employee is claiming £7,266.

Banks and finance companies are claiming £32,246. Of this, £21,054 is owed to Santander and £8,111 to Business Finance, based in Manchester.

In total, liquidators at Leading Business Services Ltd, in Norwich, estimate creditors will be left short of £101,310. PlymouthLive has tried to contact Pro-Charge SW without success.

The company specialised in the installation of electric charge points and claimed its Stonehouse showroom was the first of its kind in the region.
