MORTGAGE CAMPAIGNER David Hall was one of the more high profile, non-elected participants in the recent negotiations to form a new government, being regularly photographed or filmed alongside Independent TD Michael Fitzmaurice. Maybe this kept Hall too busy to attend to little details associated with his day job, like filing accounts.
Certainly, Hall has plenty on his plate and his Irish Mortgage Holders Organisation (IMHO) has been seeking to carve out a role for itself as the prime mortgage advisory operation in the country that represents hard-pressed homeowners.
The other string to his bow is the Co Kildare-based Life Line Ambulance Service Ltd (LLAS), which has been a good earner for him. This company provides ambulances on contract to the HSE and Hall and his wife, Susan Wiseman Hall, have managed to take out a pretty decent whack in salaries and fees – U¾m from 2011 to 2013.
The last accounts filed, for the year ended June 2013, showed accumulated profits standing at a healthy €570,000, but no accounts have been filed since and the company has now been listed for striking off by the Companies Office.
