Hi, my online shopping went wrong, I paid money but never saw the purchased item. Cutting the story short, I used the Money Claim Online court to recover the money. The seller (a limited company in England) didn't respond to the claim and the court issued a judgement as I requested.

 

The judgement is for 25 pounds. I cannot request a warrant online and send bailiffs as the minimum amount for a warrant is 50 pounds. Is the money unrecoverable if it's below 50?

 

I'm assuming the seller is able but not willing to pay. I don't know where they have a bank account so a third party debt order is out of question.

Please advice if there is anything I can do to enforce the judgement?

Surely your court fee puts it over £50 (£30)

Is the Defendant aware of the CCJ? Send them a copy and ask for the monies. For the sake of £25.00 I think they will pay to get rid of the CCJ.

Hi,

the whole outstanding 25 pounds were court fees as the defendant paid the rest in the meantime.

Thanks. They actually paid the day after I posted on this forum.

If they hadn't done so what options would have been available? Bailiff option was unavailable (amount too small), 3rd party debtors tricky (don't know details of the company's bank account). You said they would pay to get rid of the CCJ. why they would be bothered about about unenforced ccj?

Applying to wind-up the company possibly.

You can apply to the court to ‘wind up’ a company if it can’t pay its debts of more than £750.

There are actually a number of different grounds you can rely on to wind-up a company, these are set out in s122 Insolvency Act 1986. One of the grounds involves the company not paying a debt of more than £750 for three weeks after being served with a statutory demand - this is the easiest way but it is not the only way.

 

For a debt of less than £750 you could use the ground "the court is of the opinion that it is just and equitable that the company should be wound up". If a company persistently refuses to pay a debt and you have exhausted other options, then I think a court would be inclined to wind-up a company on this ground if the debt still doesn't get paid.

However, it is not the only ground you can use. For a debt of less than £750 you could use the ground "the court is of the opinion that it is just and equitable that the company should be wound up".

But not for £25 so irrelevant.
