The spokesman said Mr Jackson did not dispute two matters of unfit conduct.
He added: "He caused Best Trade to trade at the risk of creditors including the Inland Revenue and Crown. He caused payments totalling £119,428 to be made after Best Trade ceased trading which were to the detriment of the Crown and creditors."
