Hello everyone, I have a question that relates to a much serious issue, however I wanted to know where I stand? I have a business partner 50/50 who has requested to be a signatory on the business bank account. He wasn’t a signatory at the time the account was setup and wasn’t a director either at that time. Is it illegal to object and refuse him such access? Recent actions have left me worrying why he wants access now? He says he can freeze the accounts Which would cause bigger issues for the business. I don’t know how true that is either he is at best trying to cause me as much stress as possible. He has a solicitor as a partner and he already threatened me with action/s as his partner is far cleverer than me he says! He pushed for a company valuation and wanted me to buy him out and pay him a sum of money that he wants the business to pay which is a private debt he inherited when he was a sole trader at the time. This is what has a caused the rifled between us now as I don’t feel he has the right to demand this company pay his debt off. I just would like clarification as to whether or not I have to legally agree to his demand to be a signatory on the company bank account? Can anyone help me here with clear and precise knowledge what is legal or illegal as far as his request goes? Can he also freeze the accounts?
