As far as I'm aware the company is simply no longer trading, having been taken over. The new firm is continuing to manage the previous firm's workload. This concerns, I regret to say, a firm of solicitors!
The amount owed is over £1,800.00
Yes I did - as a medical expert. Given that there is no trace of the old company on the Companies House website, I presume I will need to take action against the new company? The new company told me that I would need to take action against the old company. The address they gave me does not have the old company's name and the telephone number is ***** of the new company!! (The new company is an established solicitors firm)
Thank you. This concerns more than one set of instructions.
Having done a little more "digging" on the internet, I have now found the company number, now applied to a firm with a different name. The contact address is the same as given to me by the new company, the phone number again is that of the new company. The SRA website does not list the changed name firm on its website.
I assume that I have to take action against this company, which appears not to be in active business, although it is listed at Companies House?
Further to my reply yesterday, the old company's present registered address is that of a firm of chartered accountants, which confirms my suspicions that this company is not actually trading despite being listed at Company House. Does this affect who I can claim against?
