First post so I would like to thank anybody who can point me in the right direction.
We are owed £75k from a company, some of the invoices are over a year old now. During that time we must have had about 30 promises to pay in writing. Some verbal as well but they weren't recorded. After taking advice, we were told to serve them with a statutory demand and issue winding up proceedings.
When we told them we were going to do this, they said the debt is formally disputed. Their reasoning was laughable, and we pointed out that they'd had a recent CCJ because clearly they couldn't pay their debts.
They made us fill in a massive spreadsheet of 'queries', but even on their own spreadsheet, it acknowledged 95% of the debt. It took us a couple of weeks to go through everything but we emailed it anyway. Then, after not hearing from them for a few days we learned that they had appointed their own Administrators.
We have been advised to serve the demand in any case, and try to proceed with our claim. If it is succesful, does anybody know of any insolvency practitioners who would like to try and take the claim on?
Forgive me if the terminology is off, I am learning as I go along,
