I have a small limited comapny in Scotland and for medical reasons I filed my yearly account 2 weeks late. I recieved a £150 late filing fee. Due to the seasonal nature of my business cash flow at this time of year is pretty dire so I couldn't pay it all in one go. I paid £65 in October and then received a claim through the post during November for the £85 oustanding. I have paid a further £100 in late November and then £35 today after speaking to companies house (they confirmed that this was the oustanding amount due to fees). Total paid to date £200. Companies House told me that the Lewis Group were dealing with this debt and I should ring them to confirm the balance is paid. I don't pay DCA ever but rang them to check that it was clear. The woman was very rude and abrupt and insisted that I should have paid them not companies house.....whoops no commission for you!! She said that there was a balance of £111.23 outstanding. When questioned (and she made a right meal of the figures) she said that they had added £126.23 legal expenses onto the claim for £85!!! Now all they have done is issue the claim so is there something that should make the legal fee proportional to the claim? £126.23 for typing 50 words onto a form and submitting it can't cost that. What are my options here?Any help much appreciated.

Hi Tartan

 

That will be the court fee and sol fee.Now as there is no debt make sure you complete the N1 response pack (Acknowledgment of service) and also state within the Defence and CC (N9B) section 2 that it is paid.Otherwise they will still get a default judgment (just for their fees).

Its up to them to withdraw or discontinue.

Thanks Andy.Is that for Scotland or England? So I owe £76.23 which is the balance of their 'fees', are you saying I don't need to pay this or that I should pay it and then fill the forms in? Is the £126.23 acceptable for a £85 claim?!?

That's for both (I Assume the Claim is Northampton CCBC?)

 

They have issued the claim on the pretence that a debt was out standing..that is the standard court fee for an N1 claim.The Sols fees may vary.Now that debt has been paid ( accepted not to the Claimant but direct) then really they should advise them to withdraw.

I can not see CH doing that..after all a penalty is a penalty and CH are very strict.

 

I personally would pay the exact amount remaining as per the N1 claim......should they wish to proceed for the balance this will became a nonsense and you don't want a CCJ for £76.23.
