Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Yes you can.
There is nothing stopping you.
There may be an issue in you contacting existing customers.
But if the old company has ceased trading then I can't see the harm, because you are not in competition with it, but you may want to wait until that old company is dissolved
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks Alex. The difficulty I have is that the company probably won't be shut down until the middle/end of next year and I need to earn money in the meantime. So are you saying that as long as I dont contact existing clients my ex husband cannot claim that I am trading in competition with the existing company (even though it is not trading)?
Ok - I think you should be ok as long as it is dormant
Yes I am saying you can set up a new company without contacting the old customers
Does that help?
