I did in fact view your answer yesterday and sent a reply,so something in the system glitched. It's showing at this end.
Thank you for your reply which is really what we thought when I wrote to ask. Our new accountants just swing between a similar thread or that a debt may
not carry on. This vat thing only arose a few days ago after the old partner went bankrupt. Up to then we were assured that all was paid and certaimly no one has sent us or accountants any notice. We haven't done anything as yet but pay off bank lloans,cards and overdraft he left,there were no other creditors. Sadly in our remote area of the south west real experts and good legal advice doesn't seem to exist,hence the question to you
Thank you for doing your best to point us in a direction. I appreciate that really there isn't much you can offer in more advice and,as you say,we need a clued up lawyer somehow to help guide further. If I dig up anything further I will get back in touch
