Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
First the invoices you wont be personally liable
Secondly the invoices are statue barred.
Any invoice is time barred after 6 years unless the debt is acknowledged.
Therefore as long as you do not acknowledge the debt it will be time barred and no claim can be made
This is under the Limitation Act 1980
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks. Can you advise me on my next steps? I have attached a summary of the situation which will help you understand everything I think.
The lady I spoke to at Final Demand said that they were just looking for a response from me to clarify the situation. (Please read the attached so that you understand my reference to final Demand Limited)
Would you like a copy of the invoices or is that not pertinent?
You should just write back and say as per the Limitation Act 1980 the debts are statue barred and for the avoidance of any doubt you do NOT acknowledge them
That should be the end of the matter.
I don't need to see the invoice, it has no relevance thank you.
shall I send a summary of the situation?
You can but it is not necessary.
If the invoices are over 6 years old, they are statue barred
There is nothing else to say really.
Unless you have acknowledged the debt its statue barred
Should I mention that the invoices were never 'mine' and in any event should have been made out to my company?
Yes indeed you can. This is a secondary argument.
Your primary one is time barred
Secondary is you are not liable as this is the Company's debt
ok, I will write to them
Can I clarify anything else?
not now thanks
