11 appointments at KPMG LLP (OC301540) have an appointment date which is later than the resignation date. All of them "resigned" on 16-Aug-2002. For example:
ANDERSON, Jeremy David Bruce was appointed on 12-Oct-2004 and resigned on 16-Aug-2002:
His record also shows that he was appointed on 12-Oct-2004 and resigned on 31-Dec-2017. That is probably correct. The other 10 with negative service periods also each have a sensible appointment period. They are:
Clinton, Andrew Frank
Downey, Alan Giles
Fellowes, Andrew Douglas
Graham, Craig Andrew
Kelly, John Howard
Kirby Johnson, Oliver
Reader, Gary John Charles
Thomas, Matthew Qentin
Please delete the erroneous appointments.
Secondly, I request that Companies House does a bulk search for any appointment where the resignation date is earlier than the appointment date and reviews/removes them, since this is logically impossible. The system should also prohibit new entries of such data.
