With the advent of auto-correct and other spell-checking technologies, the necessity of correct grammar usage seems to have all but disappeared.

However, small errors can cost millions.

In 2009, a company with a over 130 years of history went into liquidation because of one letter.

Taylor & Sons Ltd

Established in 1875 as a family-run business, Taylor & Sons Ltd was a company with a £40m turnover that employed 250 people.

What happened?

Companies House registered Taylor & Sons as having gone bust. In reality, it was an entirely different company - Taylor & Son Ltd - that had gone into liquidation.

Unfortunately, the company's credibility was in ruin and it lost millions in revenue due to lost orders and contracts.

Overall, the incident cost Companies House £8.8 million.

That's why we want to ensure that no business, or its reputation, is under threat.

We are looking for £1000 to set up a proofreading business to make sure you maintain your reputation and authority as an organisation.
