Can you be a shareholder when bankrupt?
My client was declared bankrupt last year. In the meantime he has a successful sole trade. He wants to incorporate as the business is going well with his partner as director until he is discharged (next year).
What are the pitfalls in this?
Presumably he can still be a shareholder?
It feels a bit wrong however. Is this common?
Thanks in advance
