    Default Long story short, and an odd insolvency.

    My ex employer (LTD Co) has found a novel way to avoid the companies debts. The director dissolved the company while still trading, without informing employees, or any other creditor, until after the strike off. Redundancy notices were issued, but now the director is trying to avoid paying. any suggestions welcome.

    Thank you!

    Was a new company formed, or did the old one just close?

    Old one dissolved, carried on as if nothing had happened. Of course the bank account, card processing etc, frozen, cash only transactions.

    but what legal entity carried on as if nothing had happened? Individual as a sole trader? And when did all trade stop? Has everyone been paid.

    I ask because I suspect you should have TUPEd over to the going concern...

    It's important to know what you might be taking legal action against.

    And what happened after the company was dissolved? Pleas be more specific, details really matter here. I can't give advice based on three sentences.

    No legal entity at all, Literally. The staff that remain pay themselves from the takings. "TUPEd"?.

    TUPE is an acronym for ’Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 1981.

    No. I have been TUPEd with this employer more than once already. He has given false information to the LA regarding liability for business rates. It is complicated, but a further company was incorporated last year in order to avoid business rates. Enforcement action is being taken against said company, which has now "moved".

    trading whilst insolvent is a criminal offence but rarely fully investigated. Try reporting to comanies house by phone and ask for advice on who else to inform as they carry more clout than your voice alone
