Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How much did you pay them and when exactly was this?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. If they are genuinely in liquidation, it would be pointless to pursue them through court as the court claim could be frozen anyway, whilst the insolvency process is ongoing.
If they are a limited company then you can check to see if there are any notices about the impending insolvency on Companies House by searching their name:
You can also search the Law Gazette:
If they are proceeding with liquidation then it is best to contact the liquidators to ensure they are aware you are a creditor of the company and they will then distribute any of their money/assets to pay off any creditors, although what you get will depend on how much money they have.
