Hi, I have debt with a few different companies amounting to around £19k as a result of my company becoming unable to manage our cash flow. (We were bought down by several of our clients not able to pay us now the inland revenue are winding the company up.) The above aside I would like some advice on what I can do to manage the debt that I have built up trying to support the company which is as follows: Current account: - £2,600 over-dawn - overdraft limit is £3k Credit card 1 - £2,540 - limit is £3k Credit card 2 - £3,145 - 0% interest card for 18 months Credit card 3 - £3,320 - limit is £6,500 Also; A personal account with a joinery supplier to which I owe £7,800. So all in all about £19,405 and increasing daily due to living costs etc. All the debt I have above is from buying materials for the company, going without being paid for several months and not being able to pay my expenses for several months in order to support the company. (I also had £10k invested in the company that I have lost) and; The company's overdraft facility which is £25k shared equally between myself and my business partner. In order to get this we had to sign a debenture in order to personally guarantee it. I didn't include the above because I'm not sure if this needs to be considered for the time being, I guess that's question 1 because the revenue haven't completed winding us up so the account is still live and hasn't been frozen. My current personal circumstances as a result of this are as follows: I am separated from my fiancé and have a child with her that I obviously need to support and at the very least pay maintenance for. moved out and have been living with my mother for just under a year. no assets and no savings. (No car and certainly no house) no job and have not being paid for the last couple of months. The pressing issue I have is the account with the joinery company, which is question 2 My company had an account with them with a small credit limit so both myself and my business partner set up our own individual accounts as a way of extending our purchasing ability. My company's account is settled as is my business partners however mine isn't. As a result they issued a CCJ against me about 6 months ago because we were not able to pay it off. An agreement was reached through the courts and a figure had to be paid every month. As the company failed we couldn't pay this even. The court has sent me an interim third party debt order, the joinery company is seeking to get a court order to demand from my bank the contents of my account. Question 3 I guess is where I go with all of this next, I haven't got any way forward with any way to pay this off, and after years of sacrifice and going without I have come out the other side with less than nothing. I have done a little research into what my options are but I guess taking all of the above into consideration, what is the best approach: Debt relief order - for debts of less than £20k - although i'm now very close to the limit not taking the business's over draft facility so i'm not sure if eligible Individual voluntary agreement - If the above isn't possible perhaps this would work but would everything be covered in this? Bankruptcy - not ideal for obvious reasons.
