A client is being chased for a debt (over £1,500) from a company which has a compulsory notice of strike off issued against it. The strike off notice is dated today and the debt collection agent called today. Coincidence??
The contract was a 12 month rolling one which the client didn't notice. Since then the client has formed a ltd company but the contract is unfortunately still in his name as a sole trader. He tried to cancel it but was out of time by about one month so according to the debt chasing company he is still personally liable.
Does anyone have experience of getting out of this kind of contract? He has been told he has to pay within 24 hours or face a "statutory demand" notice being served on him tomorrow with punitive interest and costs. Surely this would be down to the courts?
