Over the next few months, the real impact that the pandemic has had on people and their companies is going to become very clear. Companies House – the UK’s official registrar of companies – is a good place to find this information. Those who appear on the list must file regular accounts, with only very limited exceptions in law.
And those accounts for 2020 are starting to appear now. One of those is for Hannah Wants. Earlier this year, she was an extremely vocal supporter of Save Our Scene UK, a movement which held an event in London which she participated in. A number of people at the time speculated money was the reason – a claim Wants denied at the time.
She claimed to have “lost a ton of money” – something which is borne out in the latest accounts for Hannah Wants Ltd to appear on Companies House. As of 31st October 2019, the company had net assets of £624,166. Twelve months later, this had nosedived down to £61,768 – a drop of 90% in just a year.
However, it’s not all bad news. Her other company, Wants Holdings Ltd had assets of £318,100 as of October 2019. At the end of October 2020, this had risen quite substantially – going up to £770,163. This is an increase of 142% on the previous year.
How does this compare against other DJs at a similar position? Well, this blog will be reporting on that over the next few months. Time to see how much the pandemic has really affected big names in the scene in the pocket…
