Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. I would recommend you write back to them as follows:
- Say this an obvious attempt to trade of the back of the reputation of the registrar if Companies in England to extort money from you;
- Say that you deny any liability - and at best this a sharp practice that is prohibited in England;
- Say it is a criminal offence in England to pursue someone for money they do not owe so as to cause harassment - S.40 of the Administration of Justice Act 1970;
- Say if they do not stop chasing and provide you with a credit note by return, you reserve the right to report them to the police and sue them for your costs in defending the claim.
Unfortunately as a business owner you have signed something without reading the small print, if they sue you will have to take steps to defend the claim.
I look forward to hearing from you.Kind regards AJ
