Another company owned by Paul Kiely, founder of Provence, has gone into administration, the MA has learnt.

Another company owned by Paul Kiely, the founder of discredited pub company Provence, has gone into administration, the Morning Advertiser has learnt.

Do It Right UK Limited, a company that provided maintenance and joinery services to Provence pubs, went into administration yesterday (Thursday).

Do It Right lists Penny Lodge Developments, a company for which brother Shaun Kiely serves as a director, as a client.

Do It Right is listed at Companies House as being based at Provence's Bradshawgate office in Bolton but is believed to have offices elsewhere in the town.

Some of the work in the past few weeks was about moving televisions and furniture from closed pubs to the pubs that Peter Kiely wants to carry on running ​Do It Right creditor.

Paul Kiely is the sole director with Clare Rosson serving as company secretary.

They are listed as having the same Bolton domestic address.

Former Provence staff members report that another member of the Kiely family, Danny Kiely, was running it for a while.

One creditor told the Morning Advertiser: "I'm owed £24,000. We were told that payment was being held up because Do It Right needed to remove the name Provence from the bottom of company cheques.

"Work was pouring in until about a month ago but I just kept getting fobbed off about payment.

"Some of the work in the past few weeks was about moving televisions and furniture from closed pubs to the pubs that Peter Kiely wants to carry on running like the Fox in Doncaster."

Other companies run by Paul Kiely that have gone into administration include Kiely Developments and an estate agency called Dillons.

Provence went into administration at the end of October a year after S-Mart Stores, a company run by brother Shaun Kiely, went into administration.

Both companies were involved in selling over-rented freehold property at public auctions.

Shaun Kiely's company Sky Properties (Northern) Limited sold properties at auction for which his S-Mart Stores business was tenant.
