Hi Alex, in your experience what are my chances of getting an order set aside? I know it depends on the individual case but is this a strategy that works? Also, what happens if I do get the order set aside does the bailiff have to pay back the money held on account?
If this is the case can you give me the section of the 2006 Act that deals with this?
Hi Alex, what about my previous question please;
Hi AlexThe company that has filed the claim was dormant according to accounts submitted to HMRC in 31 March 2013 and 31 March 2014. My contract with the company was signed in February 2013 and I understand that dormant companies cannot enter into legally binding contracts is this correct? If this is the case then the contract was and is unenforceable so this is a key part to my defence.ThanksPaul
What do you mean that would be the key, can you expend on this please?
So would that invalidate a contract or just prove that they're breaking HMRC regulations?
Hi Alex, I'm not quite sure what you mean by this.
I know that companies that are trading have to cease all contracts when they do dormant so surely dormant companies cannot enter into contract?
OK, so in this case the company in question submitted dormant accounts for the year preceding 31 March 2013 and 31 March 2014 and my contract was signed in Feb 2013 surely this is a contradiction, you can't be dormant and have 'no significant accounting transactions'.
Can you find anything definitive please?
