A client who is sole director and shareholder of a client company has died. The death certificate has not yet been received but the wages are due today. As sole director/shareholder, the deceased was the only one on the bank mandate. Bank is Barclays. There are more than sufficient funds in the bank to pay the wages. (up to date bank feed in accounting software)
Is there any way of getting funds released to pay wages now? If not, are there any schemes that can provide bridging funds for wages until the death certificate and will can be presented to the bank?
