He owns 75 per cent of the shares in Fatboy Pub Company Limited.
Accounts for the firm said: “A large part of the company’s liabilities are shareholder loans which amounted to £1,361,000.
“The company is reliant upon the continued support of shareholders to trade.
“The shareholders have indicated that they are willing to continue to support the company.”
It comes after Ritchie claimed between £60,000 and £160,000 during the Covid furlough scheme to help pay staff wages.
Ritchie is worth an estimated £100 million and owns a 1,000 acre estate in Wiltshire and recently bought a neighbouring airstrip.
His pub sells beer from his own Gritchie Brewing brand and also venison from the country park, where he lives.
