    • Hi all,   In massive need of your advice!!   Got a finance agreement with MoneyBarn in September of last year (2018). Made regular payments until I had financial difficulties. My last payment to MoneyBarn was April 2019. I since then, did not make payments to them. I did make contact with them and said that the arrears would be cleared as soon as I had sold my property, as I was moving in with my partner instead.   They then filed a default against me. (Although I found this out later on) Unfortunately, I then went through a tough period in my life, in which suffered badly with depression and anxiety. I did inform them of this.   Once the property was sold, I contact them to ask for a breakdown of options and what I could do. I did not receive this. Instead, I had a lovely gentleman turn up at my door saying he has a repossession order and has come to take the car. This was the first time I had heard of this, I wasn’t notified of any defaults prior to this (relating to when I previously mentioned “found out later on) or the termination of the contract.   I have since returned the vehicle after they told me I could not pay the arrears and/or pay 50% of the term and do VT? I have also been told I cannot reinstate my contact.   I have told them about the mental issues I had, and said that I did not appreciate a guy turning up when I have my children and demanding the car. Their reply was “we informed you of the termination and repossession” to which I said “no you didn’t”.   They argue that they sent it to my old address (despite me informing them of the new one) and I even asked the question of “how did the debt management agency know where to go then?” As they then informed me that they didn’t have my new address on file?   I appreciate I owe them money, however, I did say that the amount they are asking for is unrealistic and that I will happily contest in court.    Any my advice will help!!! 
    • Hello DX100UK and all observers. I am delighted to announce I have had no further communication from Shoosmiths Todays date is 20th August 2019  That is the 20 year anniversary of the original decree granted at the Scottish sheriff Court on 20th August 1999 The 20 year prescriptive period should kick into force. Celebrate   Would any further letters now constitute harrassment ?  or does the debt technically still stand but just not enforcable ? They cant seek a new decree ?    
    • Now some at this stage might think I'm leading to doggerland as the site of Atlantis   https://www.winterwatch.net/2019/01/did-the-inspiration-for-atlantis-flood-and-ark-legends-stem-from-paleo-doggerland/           but for a number of reasons, I'm not ... although I think it is a part of the larger story,   Its a little late. I believe the final inundation of doggerland is part of the later Biblical flood and related myths. (Black Sea, Arabian Gulf, West coast of India etc) ... but worthy of mention is that it could effectively make up one of three 'larger' islands as detailed in the legends far better than the Azores does. ... and mammoths/elephants crossed that bridge - although carefully check the dates of those mammoth/elephant migration evidence. They seem to end 11000bp.           http://www.bbc.co.uk/earth/story/20150722-lost-beasts-of-the-ice-age   http://www.canada.com/technology/Massive+Canadian+melt+have+triggered+flood+biblical+proportions/3954124/story.html   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outburst_flood   http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/flood-myths.html#Sproul    
    • Hi.   Someone reported that your pg1 still had the reg number showing, so I've removed it and left pg2.   HB

Might have been underpaid - what are my next steps?

Recommended Posts

Hi - I am looking for some advice and hope that someone can help.

 

I did nearly two years work for a company and was paid into my limited company following time sheets being approved.

 

Despite the ultimate client being fine payment was through a third party and at the end of their contract I found myself with a discrepancy of quite a few thousands based on my calculations (I accept these may not be accurate although I think they are).  I have spoken to the company many times and they have promised to look into it but never seem to reply.

 

As I want clarification that payments are correct rather than going straight for legal action any advice on what my next step should be would be greatly appreciated (a SAR maybe?)

 

Thanks in advance.

You need an accountant to calculate exactly what you are owed and claim this sum.

I say to contact an accountant because you're not sure of your own figures, so before claiming anything I would prefer to have a solid figure to go with.

If you have all the timesheets and rates, an accountant shouldn't charge more than a couple of hundred,  surely cheaper than the few thousand you're owed.

I have to agree with Kingly, you cnat go at this full tilt and then have to admit in a court that you dont ahve a clue whetehr the sums are right or wrong.

Youw ill need to look at the original contract and also understand/be able to explain what the third party does and what agreement you have with them

Thanks for the replies.  I really appreciate your help.

 

I will get it validated from my side but I still need to have confirmation from them what they consider they have paid me and what they think they should have paid me. 

 

Do you consider a SAR would be a good idea?

Not at this stage.

They haven't denied under paying you, so it might be a simple matter of getting a figure backed up by an accountant calculations and ask for the money.

They might just pay it.

Used to happen all the times in building sites in my days.

Sorry for the delay in updating but I have been so busy.

 

The information is now all with my accountant so I can see what happens next.

 

Thanks for the advice which I have followed
