The insolvency hearing had been listed for 11am yesterday at the High Court in London and related to a HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) tax bill, which had already been paid.
A HMRC error saw the payment allocated to the wrong month, subsequently making it appear overdue.
That triggered action against the club, including an application to close the company down.
HMRC has since been in touch with Doncaster Rovers to acknowledge their mistake.
The club now considers the matter to be closed.
A spokesperson for HMRC said they cannot comment on individual cases ‘due to strict confidentiality rules’.
In a statement, HMRC told The Free Press:
“We take a supportive approach to dealing with customers who have tax debts and only file winding-up petitions once we’ve exhausted all other options, in order to protect taxpayers’ money.”
