EastEnders star Jessie Wallace’s troubled company is finally dissolved owing tens of thousands to tax man
EASTENDERS star Jessie Wallace’s company has finally been dissolved owing thousands to the taxman.
The actress, 49 – best known for playing Kat Slater in the BBC One soap – placed her company Thatcher Promotions Limited into voluntary liquidation in 2015.
Documents with Companies House show that HMRC wanted £69,614 in corporation tax and VAT and the star ended up paying only £25,964.
The soap star owed £1500 to trade creditors, which she paid £1,194 of.
Jess also paid off £60,000 in ‘director’s loan accounts’ and had to pay £25,000 to the liquidator.
It was previously reported that the firm handles Jessie’s EastEnders salary before it was dissolved yesterday.
Jessie has been one of the biggest stars in soapland for years, joining the drama for her first stint as Alfie Moon's girlfriend between 2000 and 2005.
She has hit headlines both for her work on and off screen – most recently for being suspended for seven months.
Jessie reprised her role as Kat in September of last year after she was booted off the soap after allegedly boozing on set in January.
Her character was written out of any upcoming plots before lockdown halted filming.
But since returning she has been part of a number of gripping storylines, including a robbery, a romance with Phil Mitchell and the death of her ex boyfriend Kush.
The Sun Online has contacted Jessie's rep for comment.
