I note the car is in your name. Was the car financed from your own personal money or using company funds please?
thank you. About basis, your understanding is quite correct that creditors of your company have no claim against your car nor for that matter against any other assets which are in your name and were financed by you. As you will be aware, a limited company has a distinct legal person in law and company debts are not the same as your debts unless fraudulent or unlawful dealing can be proven on your part - unlawfully taking company funds to deprive creditors knowing your company was insolvent
Bailiffs cannot break into your property there are a few open the door to them, they can force their way in. If this is any property that belongs to you as opposed to your company, you can apply to the court with a statutory declaration of ownership to recover those assets
is there anything above I can clarify for you?
