Rewrie, the sole director of accountancy company PR Finance And Development, formerly Paul Rewrie Ltd, was the accountant for a Cambridge-based, family-run company and was hired to enrol its staff into a pension scheme.

TPR said he is accused of falsely declaring that staff at the company had been enrolled into a workplace pension scheme, “when he knew that was not the case”.

The regulator added that providing false or misleading information is an offence under section 80 of the Pensions Act 2004.

A statement by TPR read: “It is the third case TPR has brought against an accountant for providing false or misleading information.

“Rewrie is facing one charge of knowingly providing false or misleading information to TPR. He is due to appear at Brighton Magistrates Court on 8 January 2020.”
