The Registrar has decided that further action is not in the public interest and that Bell Pottinger will be treated as having left the Register on 31 December 2017, since work continued to try to collect the missing information until this date.27/12/2017: To date, the Registrar has been unable to obtain information returns for the period before administration as all employees have been made redundant and the Administrators are not in a position to complete a return as they are not able to provide undertakings or statements for a period that they are not responsible for.
