Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I am here to help you. I am reviewing your question and will respond to you shortly.
Thank you for your question.
In normal circumstances the LTD company's debts are treated/viewed separately, the LTD company being a separate legal entry.
If HMRC suspect the actions of the directors' were delibrate, then they have the power to pursue the directors for the debts.
In all honestly, you should have made provision for VAT and CT liability before withdrawing the funds.
If I were you I would make an effort to clear HMRC debt and/or make an arrangement for negotiated setllement.
There is every likelihood, the debts would be written off but you may have to wait for a few years as HMRC would keep objecting to the company been struck off with monies owed to the Exchequer.
I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
If you have any other questions,please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.
Thank you for your response.
If you are paying the bills from personal money, HMRC is unlikely to question the mismanagement of company finances as the debt would be cleared.
I presume you would be making payment from personal funds that is disposable income in your hands or savings from declared and taxed income.
If you were to clear your debt, the creditors would not have any objection in the company been struck off. Your name would not be blacklisted and you would be able to incorporate another company be be its director/shareholder.
