League One club face court hearing over unpaid tax money.
Notts County face more financial woe after the club were summoned to the high court in relation to a winding-up order.
HMRC brought the case in regards to monies due on December 19th 2012 but County strenuously deny any wrongdoing and expect the case to be thrown out.
The club, currently 11th in League One, issued a statement on their official website: “This action is regarded by the board as both disruptive and damaging.”
“The club can state, unequivocally, that the business is completely up to date with all VAT and PAYE monies.”
County have instructed legal counsel to represent them and intend on recovering more than costs from the trial for “the harm suffered by the football club”.
“Unfortunately, we had no option other than to instruct legal counsel to represent us, but we fully expect this issue to be resolved in our favour once the judge has before him all the facts,” added the statement.
This is another setback for the Midlands club following the Munto Finance regime which brought former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, ex-Arsenal defender Sol Campbell and other high earners to Meadow Lane.
Since that disastrous takeover they were purchased by Ray Trew for £1 and the businessman saved the club from administration that same season.
However, despite Trew pumping £12m of his own money into the club he has been unable to stave off this winding-up petition from HMRC and it remains to be seen where the club will go from here.
