Hello Geoff my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you paid the CCJ please? What date was the CCJ?
Yes...it was recoded on the 2nd of this month I paid the accountant £ 900 a few days later when I became aware of the summons.I had already paid £ 1,100
Ok - then the accountant should provide a letter to say it was paid
You can then send it to the Court and get a certificate of cancellation - I think the cost is £15
You can send this to the credit reference agencies to get the CCJ removed
The accountant should then provide your documents to the new one
If he does not you need to write and ask that he sends the documents otherwise you will go to Court.
If he still refuses you can issue proceedings using form N1
You are asking the Court that he 'delivers up' any outstanding documents.
The Court will then consider the application and decide whether to make an order
If the Court does and he refuses he could be in contempt of Court
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
My biggest concern is that with a CCJ I will not be able to get work; given that I had already paid £ 1,100 prior to the court hearing and that the summons was incorrectly addressed are there any grounds for cancelling the CCJ rather than amending the record(in other words will the CCJ remain on my as being 'settled' or will go completely and how long would this take?
Yes but as I have said if you pay within 28 days the CCJ can be cancelled so it will be removed
But you need to apply to the Court with a fee of £15 to get a certificate of cancellation
You then send that document to Experian, Equifax and Call Credit
ok thats fine. The other matter regarding completing and filing my company accounts; is there anything I can do to force the accountants to provide the requested documents from my new accountants; their persistent delay has left me facing a prosecution if not completed by the 31st Oct
Yes did you not see my response above?
You need to apply to the Court for an order for delivery up
Ok got it..do I need to get a solicitor involved at this point or simply threaten court action?
No - you can do it yourself
online via the link you sent?
No thats the form online
You can't issue the claim onoine
You need to take it to the Court Court itself to issue
so i complete the form and then simply go to my local magistrates court?
ok thats fine
Thanks very much for your help
Can I clarify anything else?
No..I dont think so; other than to ask how this might impact the potential prosecution I face if the accounts are not completed and filed by the end of this month. I have made Companies House aware but they have not indicated whether they would extend this date if my new accountants are unable to complete in time
Well as long as you provide it, even late they can stop the prosecution
Does that help?
Yes I think it does
Can I help with anything else tonight Geoff?
No thanks you for all your help
