Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.
Can you please explain your situation a little more?
Do you accept between March and Dec 16 they have not been paid?
Is there a contract? Do they say how they get to £10k interest?
Is this the first time they have chased it?
Has it actually been invoiced before?
Was it invoiced though ?
ok. As you are a business there will be some interest payable uner the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 of 8% above base.
They are also entitled to fixed compensation per invoice. This is:
Up to £999.99 - £40
£1,000 to £9,999.99 - £70
£10,000 or more- £100
No legal costs or higher lump sum compensation payments.
They do have 6 years to make a claim.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

You just say that. If the Company has no or little assets you say so.
As such if they would the company up, which they are entitled to do so, they wouldnt get anything
Thats your best tactic
Does that clarify?
