Yes I do know his address but he lives in Broughty Ferry and me Ayr. He is the only shareholder with £100 sharecapital.
We are in difficulty with HMRC who he always deals with, should I speak to them on the phone I have never had any experience of the finances I manage and sell on a day to day basis. He has no working involvement with him at all yet he takes a monthly salary and has a company credit card which he uses for day to day spending thats the only reason I know he is in the country. Anyway our bookeeper is retiring andshe has said that he promised her an extra 2500 when she retires at the end of the month. I have no knowledge of this so she thinks she can just take the money in her salary?
I was always lead to believe he was my boss and I was a director in name only because when he took over the company I had worked with the previous owner for 20 years.Am I jointly liable to him for the companies conduct even although I havent been involved?
How can I get him out of the picture if he owns the company?
So in effect Im working my socks off to fund his lifestyle with the added worry of HMRC shutting us down?
How could I buy the company from him - he still owes 150k to the previous owner and has not kept up on the repyments?
One final question - could the previous owner take the company back?
