We have 2 companies one has gone into liquidation. Company 1 has gone into liquidation company 2 is still trading. 18 phones were under contract to company one but the purchase order was in the name of company 2 so the phone company are chasing for payment. The phones were used by company 1 and due to the liquidation are not required. Does the signed contract in the name of company 1 take priority or the purchase order in the name of company 2
Who was paying the bill?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
company 2 on behalf of company 1
There is no contract with Company 1 - Company 1 did not sign it.Company 2 signed it and therefore the contract can ONLY be with Company 2.There is no contract with Company 1.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
