THE OUTSIDER Aluminium Awning System 99% UV Protection Engineered for very high wind zones 5 YEAR Warranty JE0340-v2 Liquidators are chasing almost $210,000 allegedly owed by the owner of the now-closed The Beach House restaurant at Bucklands Beach. The liquidators’ - KPMG - first report dated March 24 seeks to determine whether there are any further claims on the company Restaurant VIP Ltd, under which The Beach House restaurant and bar operated. It was owned by Alex Kaihea who appears to have left New Zealand. The report says the liquidators have been unable to contact Mr Kaihea to date however KPMG’s Paul Burns told the Times they had, since filing the report, received one email. The Times visited an old address of Mr Kaihea’s but found no-one home. In January, many phone calls were attempted to Mr Kaihea. His phoned appeared to be switched off. “Other parties have advised that the business ceased trading in January 2016 when the director shut down the restaurant and subsequently moved overseas,” the liquidators’ report says. “ The landlord entered a new lease arrangement with a third party prior to liquidation.” A new unrelated business – Sunset Restaurant & Bar – now operates from the site. It took over the premises on May 3. The Times reported in January that diners and a bride-to-be were left in the lurch when the popular restaurant on The Parade closed unexpectedly. It had been closed for about a month at that stage. A Pakuranga bride-to-be had booked her wedding and put down a $1000 deposit and had only learned in January the restaurant was in trouble. It is unknown if she got the deposit back. “We understand that a number of assets were also removed from the premises before our appointment,” the liquidators say. On application by the IRD, the company was placed into liquidation on February 19 “for failing to meet its obligations to Inland Revenue, consisting of overdue Student Loan Employer Contributions, KiwiSaver Employee Deductions, KiwiSaver Employer Contributions, PAYE, GST and ESCT (employer superannuation contribution tax) together with penalties and interest”. The largest sum sought against any assets recovered is a preferential claim from the IRD for $114,340. Unsecured creditors so far have claims for a little over $95,000. The liquidators have made no payments to any creditors thus far. “At this stage it is not possible to provide an estimated date for the completion of the liquidation, nor is it possible to provide a definitive statement as to whether sufficient assets will be realised for the purposes of making payment to any class of creditor.” The report says the company had assets including plant and equipment, office equipment and a vehicle at the date of liquidation. “ The liquidators are undertaking investigations to determine whether there are any claims and/or assets that may give rise to recoveries for the benefit of creditors,” the report says. liquidation Beach House debt close to $210,000 business expansion New attraction at Rainbow’s End promotes road behaviour PM john Key at the Rainbow’s End event. Photo supplied Rainbow’s End has announced another new attraction to be opened by the end of the year. The announcement was made at an event attended by Prime Minister John Key in his capacity as Minister of Tourism. To be named ‘AA Driver’s Town’, the new attraction will enable children aged 5-13 years to experience driving a miniature Suzuki Swift around a colourful, tiny town featuring traffic lights, two-way roads, roundabouts, parking spaces, car wash, petrol station and other landmarks. Rainbow’s End CEO Chris Deere said having recently added new attractions targeted at younger and older age groups, the company wanted to create something new for kids aged 5-13 as part of its ongoing programme of revitalisation and growth. “Our visitation levels have increased 62 per cent over the past five years as a result of our ongoing investment in improving the overall experience for visitors of all ages. “ We expect the addition of ‘AA Drivers Town’ to contribute to further growth in visitor numbers,” said Mr Deere. Dougal Swift, general manager AA Membership & Brand said AA hopes the new attraction will encourage positive attitudes to driving. “We are really excited to work with Rainbow’s End to launch AA Driver’s Town later this year, which moves beyond entertainment into educational play in a fun and engaging way,” said Mr Swift. “It provides a great opportunity for kids to learn basic road rules, patience and healthy attitudes to driving safely,” said Mr Swift. Rainbow’s End was recently awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence (April 2016), and late last year received the 2015 IAAPA Top Family Entertainment Centre of the World Award for Kidz Kingdom.
