Palmerston North restaurant Mao Bar has been closed after its parent company was placed into liquidation.

The George St business was placed into liquidation yesterday and was shut as of this morning.

Established about six years ago, it was purchased by Alan Rowell in 2010.

He placed the business on the market for $200,000 late last year.

The business' former owner, Richard Wayne Soper, was found guilty of 55 tax evasion charges dating from October 2009 to October 2010 after failing to pay Inland Revenue $114,429 in tax.
