Mr Howard said: 'In the report to creditors the directors cited a tough market, that they had perhaps grown too quickly and a large HMRC debt.'

Mr Howard added it was too early to establish the amount of money owed to creditors.

Kudos had offices in Ber Street in Norwich, Poringland, Long Stratton, Brundall, Bungay, Diss, Gorleston and Great Yarmouth.
