Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Did you sign or agree any consultancy agreement? Were you a shareholder?
Thank you. When did you dispose of your shares? Do you have a standard hourly rate? Do you have any correspondence that shows you would be paid for the work? Did you produce any copyright materials?
Thank you. You can resign as a director and keep your shares - as long as you have not signed any pre emption rights. Do you have a shareholders agreement? Have you tried invoicing the company for the work? Does the company have any assets?
Thank you. A shareholding and a directorship are completely separate. You do not have to keep your directorship to own shares.
If you put in an invoice for the work - would the company be able to pay it? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. There is seemingly no obligation on you to transfer your shares on resignation. The problem you have is if you want to be paid, then the company has to have the funds to pay you. Is there any way the company can function going forward? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. Do you have a shareholders agreement? You could stay on as a director and try and negotiate and agree a way forward for the company - keep it trading until it has enough money to pay you?
Thank you. I would most grateful if you would take a moment to rate my response? Kind regards AJ
