Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer. Get an Answer ASAP.
I am a solicitor in Scotland. You cannot be a director or a shadow director of a limited company whilst you are bankrupt. You said it is your wife’s company and then go on to refer to “my employees” so please be careful about what you are doing. However the answer to your question is that if a third party decides to clear one of your debts and the creditor accepts the funds, you would not be favouring one creditor over another becasue you are not making the payment. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that JustAnswer credits me for helping you today.
It would be unwise to get too involved and approach creditors. The trustee would challenge the transactions as being unfair preferences under the Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act.
I’m not sure what you mean by questions. Do you mean the usual questionnaire issued about your affairs? All you asked was if someone else could pay a debt off for you and the answer is yes but you can’t have anything to do with it. If you do the transaction can be reduced?
You can argue that these items, whilst in your name, are beneficially owned by the company and should not form your personal estate.
