Former BHS owner Dominic Chappell has told a court he would have to take out a loan if he is fined for failing to provide pension information to investigators after the firm collapsed into administration.
Former BHS owner Dominic Chappell, 51, has been fined £87,170 at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court in London for failing to provide pension information to investigators after the firm collapsed into administration.
Chappell’s outgoings include £3,800 a month rent on the Dorset home where he lives with his wife and children, around £32,000 a year renting a new Range Rover and £2,500 a month on private school fees.
Former BHS store manager Lin Macmillan said: “I think he should have been fined more to be honest because during the one year that he was the owner he took an awful lot more than that out of the business.
In a statement released after sentencing, Martin-Baker Aircraft Company said: “Our thoughts remain foremost with the family and friends of Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham, to whom the company conveys its sadness, regret and apology.
