Hi All, I ran a Limited company in Leeds for a year with 2 other directors all with equal share and I was the company secretary. We had no official partnership or director contracts as everything was done on trust. After a short while it became apparent that our views in the future directions of the company were quite different, I decided that I wanted out and to start my own small business and so did another of the directors (not together). Everything was done amicably and I and another director resigned I also resigned as a secretary, and we also did so officially by filing the forms at companies house 4 months ago. (I believe that company law has changed and now limited companies no longer require a secretary, hence companies house allowing me as director and secretary to resign) The remaining director continued with the business albeit with few sales due to the downturn in the economy. The company now has some unpaid and outstanding debts and the remaining director apparently has had a court summons to explain the companys activities, I am a little worried as the way that I found out about his court summons was a heated telephone call from her stating that I too was going to be held responsible since I was previously director and secretary. I am willing to help and do anything that is within my power, but only within reason and within the law. If it involves me having to take some liability for the debt then what am I liable for? The percentage share that I previously had? How protected or unprotected am I on this matter? I really dont want to go through all the legal routes as I thought that wed settled everything amicably when we all parted, but it seems that the remaining director has had a change of heart amidst the chaos of the downturn in business adn the fact that she has had a summon to court. I have not personally guaranteed anything on the company nor has the other resigned director, where do I stand on this? Can I legally be held responsible for her actions? Thank you all in advance for any advice.
