Document Description

The document titled 'Request Letter to Government Authority' is a formal letter written to a government authority requesting the withdrawal of a summons to appear in court. The letter begins with the account holder's personal information, including their first name, last name, address, phone number, and email. It is then addressed to the relevant authority and includes the current date.


The purpose of the letter is to explain the reasons for the failure to take action regarding the summons and to request the authority to withdraw it. The detailed explanation provided in the letter includes the following reasons:


1. Appointment of a certified public accountants firm (CPA firm) as the company secretary and the use of their address as the registered address of the company.

2. Regular inquiries made by the directors with the CPA firm regarding business registration and tax filings, with assurances from the CPA firm that everything was taken care of.

3. Change of the company's registered address, followed by the discovery that the CPA firm had not made any filings with the Inland Revenue Department and the Company Registry. The directors were unaware of this as the CPA firm had withheld the relevant documents.


The letter emphasizes that the company has promptly terminated the services of the CPA firm and paid all the business registration fees in arrears. It also highlights that appropriate penalties have been paid and requests the authority to consider withdrawing the summons.


Overall, the document provides a detailed account of the circumstances leading to the failure to take action on the summons and presents a compelling case for its withdrawal.
