I am an owner of a limited company. Unfortunately I have realised

Customer Question

I am an owner of a limited company. Unfortunately I have realised today my invoices and also where my clients pay be go into my old sole trader bank account. If a client was to take action against me for a separate issue would they still be suing my limited company or the fact they have been paying into my old sole trader account. Thankyou

Hello,

If the contracts are between your limited company and your clients, they would be suing your limited company.

The fact that they have been paying into your sole trader account is not their problem I am afraid, it is for you to sort out as you could get in trouble with the tax man.

Hope this helps

Thankyou. I am going to deal with the bank issue immediately. They are aware I am a limited company has have had copies of my cerfiticate of Incorporation, however my invoice and there Purchase Orders to be do not show this, which is a completely stupid thing to have missed. If they were to sue me for anything again would this still be my limited company? Many thanks

Yes, it would be your limited company but there may be an element of fraud here against you and you should sort out the bank account and invoicing issues immedIately.

All the best

Thankyou very much, the old account will be shut down immediately and all Invoices with bank details will be correct, is there anything else I need to do? Thankyou

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
No as long as you regularise those things.
