Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Yes you can resign at any time you are free to do this.
You will resign as a Director but will always be a shareholder unless you give up that share or sell it.
You are not entitled to any cash - it belongs to the Company, not you.
You can't dissolve the Company without consent because it needs 51% to pass a resolution.
What you need to do is get an accountant say to value the business and then your partner can buy you out.
However unless this is agreed then you remain a shareholder and the Company must be run for the benefit of the shareholders.
There would need to be an AGM and profits can be declared.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Does my partner get a casting vote if he is the only director and the shareholders are deadlocked?
Can I freeze our business bank account if we're in conflict?
If that is in accordance with the articles yes, he would get the casting vote, otherwise no. But as you say you do not have anything so no, he would not.
You can't freeze the account as it belongs to the Company
Does this clarify?
