Hello Liz my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether they issued a claim in your name or the company?
They issued it under the company name
Ok. In reality I really would not worry about it then if your company has no assets
They can NOT come after you personally.
But if you agreed to pay £60 a month for the work being done then they needed your permission for any extra work
They can't just do extra work and say here is a bill
They need your authority
If they did not have your authority you could reasonably expect it was included.
Yes that's what I thought.
But anyway, its in the company name, not yours.
So if the company has no assets, I really would not be too concerned.
It wont affect you in any way whatsover
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
My concern is that i will have to pay the £700 they are saying that i owe for submitting accounts (which i have not signed)
which includes the other fees which i was not aware of
Do you think i will have to pay their fees along with the additional charges?
You should only have to pay the £60 a month which you have been, nothing more.
If there was additional work they should have told you
Yes, he said that when i joined i was in arrears with the accounts, they are £720 a year to which i was paying monthly
so he's submitted my 2013-2014 accounts to HMRC without me signing them
OK - then again another breach
now saying i owe £600 plus the other fees he's added on over the years
You dont have to pay anything, even if you do, its the company, not you
The company is going through closure, so if i have no money in the company what happens then?
im worried he will try to say that because i knew i owed the money, i still owe it even though the company is closing
They will get a CCJ against a worthless closed company
They cant do anything to enforce it
Does that help?
Yes thank you that's brilliant news
Great. Can I clarify anything else?
No that's great thanks Alex
