Just one extra letter…

A quite astonishing story here from the UK:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/one-spelling-error-costs-companies-house-up-to-9-million-after-being-sued-for-ruining-business-10007372.html

You should read the full article… but the short story is that a company called Taylor and Sons was recorded as being in liquidation by Companies House – the UK Government agency which incorporates and dissolves companies.

Only it wasn’t.

It was Taylor and Son – in the singular.

One letter added, and all hell breaks loose for a poor unassuming company.

Something tells me that Sent from my iPhone, please excuse typos definitely wouldn’t cover this one!

Just one extra letter…
