    • Thank you for your reply!   I’ve just had the following response from Disney. Not great at all.   Dear Fishy Thank you for your reply. We kindly confirm that Disneyland® Paris annual passes are usually non-refundable. However, due to the unprecedented situation with CoViD-19, the duration of your annual passes and their benefits have been extended by the number of days our Disney Parks were temporarily closed (123 days), starting from the original expiry date of your annual passes. As previously mentioned, we are unable to put an additional temporary halt on your annual passes; however, we would like to offer you an exceptional partial refund. If you wish to accept our offer, please provide us with a copy of the annual passes of your party as well as the filled in and signed refund form at your earliest convenience. Your annual passes will consequently be blocked. We hope that this information is helpful for you, and we look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely, Constantin Guest Communication
    • I have now written up the Claim and will post this, we have also been informed by the DJ they will counter-sue for the full amount if we take them to Court for the £500 we are at a loss? We we have also included interest from the date they refused the Money in May as we are having to borrow to fund the wedding in three weeks, its so disheartening as we also have to pay £415 to put the claim in when they could have just resolved this matter!   Are they not bothered about customers at all, they are prepared to keep money without providing any service at all   Its so shameful
    • I'm afraid lapse of time has got nothing to do with it in this case. At the very minimum, though there is is six years within which to recover a debt – and when the money is paid by way of a mistake, it is six years from the date that the mistake was discovered or could reasonably have been discovered. I understand that your vehicle was damaged in an accident and the repair bill was paid by the insurer. Somehow or other, you were also paid about £2000 ostensibly to pay the garage for the repairs. As the car was already repaired, you didn't pay the money over or query it – but you used the money. I'm afraid that if that is a correct summary of what has happened then I would say that you are obliged to repay the money. If my understanding is correct – then you had probably better contact the solicitors and start dealing with them because I'm sure that they will have no hesitation issuing a claim against you and you will then be liable for the money, plus interest at 8% – plus a measure of costs – if the judgement sum is not paid 30 days of the date of judgement.  
    • Here is the latest draft defence aligned to each item from the POC. I have incorporated PAP detail into Item 4 of the defence in italics. Do I add the detail of CCA into Defence Item 5? Your comments, advice and suggested amendments are welcome.   1. The Claimant ('C') claims the whole of the outstanding balance due and payable under an agreement referenced “ref number” and opened effective from 27/08/2016. The agreement is regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974, was signed by the Defendant ('D') and from which credit was extended to the Defendant.   Defence 1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of the claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   2.  The Defendant failed to comply with a default notice served pursuant to s87, . CCA and by 05/08/2019  a default was recorded. Defence 2. Paragraph 1 is denied. I cannot recall any dealing with HSBC in the past, I cannot recall the specifics of the alleged agreement.   3.  As at 18/09/2019 the Defendant owed “Bank of SCOTLAND” the sum of 3897281. Defence 3. Paragraph 3 is denied. It is denied that any amounts are due under any agreement.   4. By an agreement in writing the benefit of the debt has been legally assigned to the Claimant effective 18/09/2019 and made regular upon the Claimant serving a Notice of Assignment the Defendant shortly thereafter. Defence 4. Paragraph 5 is denied and I am not aware of service of a Default Notice by the original creditor or Legal Assignment the claimant refers to within its particulars of claim. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) and Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.    5. And the Claimant claims: 1. 397281;  2. Interest pursuant to Section 69 County Court Act (1984) at a rate of 8 % per Annum from 18/09/2019 to 25/08/2020 of 26171 And thereafter at a daily rate of 82 to date of judgment or sooner payment. Date 28/08/2010 Defence 5. On receipt of this claim I requested information pertaining to this claim from Link Financial & Kearns Solicitors by way of a CPR 31:14 request sent via Royal Mail delivery on 28 August 2020. To date, neither Link Financial or Kearns Solicitors are yet to furnish me with the requested information.   7.Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:- a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed for; c) show and evidence the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice pursuant to Sec 87 (1) CCA1974. d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   8. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   9. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.   By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.
    • Hi   I am not really sure where to post this , hopefully it’s appropriate here    At the end of 2017 my partner was involved in a rtc when a car pulled round a bus and hit my car that my partner was driving.   on the advice of family I instructed a car accident management company to deal with the repairs/make necessary arrangements.  The car was fixed and the accident management company paid us a couple of thousand pounds to pay the garage .  The bill never came from the garage and we were told that it had been settled by the insurance company.    when I sold the car a few months ago I struggled to sell to the garage as it was registered by my insurance as a write off.  I was offered significantly less for it because of this.    today I received a letter from a solicitors instructed by my insurance company to recover the money they paid for the repairs back in 2017.    I guess logically/morally my car was fixed and the money from the accident company is extra- although the car was marked by my insurance  as written off yet fixed!   do I need to pay them the sum they are asking or due to the time elapsed etc do I not.  The letter has made me so worried as threats of court action /costs    Thank you

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi all,

 

I received a letter from the county court saying the hmrc was seeking a ccj against my limited company for corporation tax. I owe 19k in total. This has risen over a few years. It started in 2001 when I was out of work for 12 weeks. I foolishly used my tax money thinking I could pay it back. I have chased this ever since and it’s got to this.

 

I honestly don’t know what to do next. I am a one man contractor limited company with no assets.

 

I have been paying the minimum PAYE to get my Ni stamp and taking the rest out in dividends. Now I am scared that if I go into liquidation they can chase me personally. I have tried to catch it up over the years but I would have to re pay it over 2 1/2 to 3 years to make it feasible and something I can realistically pay off. But they won’t have that at all I wouldn’t imagine.

 

I hear of people going into liquidation and I have avoided this for 11 years.

 

 

I am scared of that because it’s a massive unknown for me.

I don’t have the cash to do it voluntary and I need to carry on working after it.

 

 

I don’t suppose you can be a director of two limited companies whilst one of them is going through insolvency.

And what happens with being able to operate as a limited company after insolvency.

 

 

The other thing I am scared of is them chasing me personally for the cash.

Someone who I know has said they could pursue me if they feel the company has been run badly but this is unlikely for the amount owed. Knowing my luck though they will.

 

Has anybody been through this?

If so is there anything I can do?

What do I do with the pending ccj?

And what happens with insolvency and the implications?

 

I honestly don’t know what to do and I have avoided all this for 11 years now.

Thanks for that I will ring them on Wednesday.

I think I will be forced into the liquidation route but not sure of the consequence’s.

The problem you will have here is if you have been taking dividends illegally from the company i.e. withdrawing them when there wasn't enough profit to do so. In this instance if this is the case and the company went into a Liquidation you could be asked to pay it back by the IP or OR. The other instance when you could be pursued personally is if you are found guilty of wrongful trading or trading whilst insolvent. Only an IP can bring this action and they will only do so if they think they will be able to get something from it and they have the funds to bring the action from the Liquidation. From what you have said I think this would be highly unlikely and also it is very difficult to prove.

 

With regards to running another Ltd Co after the original Co goes into Liquidation there is no problem with this as long as you have not received a Directors ban (which again takes time). Personally I would cease to trade the Ltd Co as of now due to its liabilities. I take it the company has no assets? You can then either set up a new Ltd Co and trade through that or go as a sole trader.

So toddle I can cease trading with this company now and deal with the debts etc whilst starting a new ltd company. My accountant is rubbish as well. I ask him what I should do and all he says is well I’ve had the money. I know he is right but it’s the last thing you need to keep hearing when all you want is advice.I cannot go down the sole trader route as the companies I do contract work for won’t allow it.To be honest I want to pay the money back but need to do it over a good few years but they won’t let me do this I would imagine.What’s my next step with this ccj?I have no assets and the only person I have a contract with is the mobile company which I presume I can transfer to my new company.

Yes it is perfectly legal to do so.

 

I have no assets

Does the company have an assets? Remember you are totally seperate to the Ltd Co and so are your own assets

I don’t think I’ll get the chance to strike it off as the ccj went to court last Thursday.

 

Apparently it’s not long until they come knocking.

 

I will write to them though and I have ceased trading.Some company rang me today saying they'll liquidate me and it’s a lot easier and won’t leave a mark against my name like (they say) the hmrc liquidating me. anyway they will only charge me 7k plus vat!!!! if i had that i'd give it the hmrc and pay off my debt.

 

What happens if the hmrc liquidate me? I have read on here some person had an interview with the liquidator and it was painful!!!!! This is what I am scared off!!!!!!

i forgot to say. i rang the business helpline. although helpful they have made me feel worse!

 

it looks as though i have been trading insolvant. the lady on the phone said this will almost certainly mean i will be chased for tax personally. if this happens does anybody know if they will be more flexible on how i pay it back? i am now sh!tting myself.

£7K + Vat!!!!!!!! Outrageous!

 

Either way if the company is liquidated by an IP nominated by yourself or the OR you will not get a mark against you personally. If the Liquidation goes to the OR you will need to attend an interview to explain the circumstances of the company insolvency. It won't cost you anything and yes there may be a few awkward questions but hey what can they do - you haven't committed murder!! However, if people have the funds to appoint their own liquidator I would always advise them to do this mainly because it's 'cleaner' and less hassle. If you have only the one creditor you should be able to get this done for £2.5K plus Vat. If you haven't got the funds though let HMRC appoint a liquidator and you will have to do the interview with the OR

Trading whilst insolvent is very difficult to prove and proceedings against you for this can only be started by the Insolvency Practitioner. The IP also needs funds to bring this action and they also need to believe that you have the funds or assets to be able to repay the money for them to make it worth there while coming after you for it.

 

If you think there is a chance of this I would look to appoint your own IP. If you want any recommendations drop me a PM

The CCJ will be registered and now public knowledge and listed in the Stubbs Gazette which these firms use. You will now get plenty of these calls and letters. As advised you can still go for the strike off or wait for HMRC to appoint a liquidator and take your chances with the OR
