In the digital age, offshore secrets are hard to keep.We believe this kind of basic information, the names of people who are linked to what companies, is something that should be openly available – just as the former prime minister David Cameron himself once indicated. We are publishing this information as a public service.
22 Cheriton Gardens (former home of Maltby’s) is home to a little know company by the name of Black Pearl Offshore Limited . The Director of this company is Edmund Mommertz and the single shareholder is Marcel Mommertz
They offer their services in German via the Black Pearl Website and inform their clientèle they’ll be “Protecting your assets – anytime – anywhere”, which can’t be cheap, but it would appear there is enough money in Shepway and from abroad to attract 337 companies to it.
A former company based at 22 Cheriton Gardens, was H & H HANDEL U. HANDWERK LIMITED
The only shareholder of this company was European Business Consulting D.O.O. (Croatia) and the board member who shows up is Edmund Mommertz (see above). Now by strange coincidence H & H HANDEL U. HANDWERK LIMITED was also based in Wollerau, Switzerland, and shut down at the same time as it’s British entity. So did H&H go via Switzerland to Croatia, or Croatia, UK, Switzerland. It doesn’t matter as Switzerland is there and is well known for its secrecy and as a tax haven
