My husband is the director of a company that was heavily ripped of by a much larger well known company. We tried unsuccessfully to fight them for our money. We managed to pay all staff out of personal funds and pay most company debts off however, there is still 1 company left that we owe just under £3k to. We have been trying to pay (out of personal funds and from a personal bank account in case it's relevant) a small amount each month. So far around £150 for about 6 months. 3k is still outstanding. We've explained the situation and offered to keep going with the £150 But they've now said enough is enough and they're taking us to court. The problem is this, the company will be wound up but we're delaying it while the tax returns are being completed in the hope that some tax money may be recovered (we could then pay the debt) but it's possible we'll owe taxes. The other firm has now said they'll come after my husband personally for the money which is terrifying as we used almost all our money up paying staff. The little we have left us just helping us to recover, pay rent etc. My question is this, if the company is open or closed can this firm come after my husband personally? Ours is a limited company but the invoices are addressed to the limited company but with my husband's name on it as director. So for example, Mr A N Other, Broke Company Limited. The company will be closed after the tax return and has no assets at all. Can they come after him personally because we've made subsequent payments from our personal account? Or because the invoice had his name on it, although this was as director of the limited company and the other company state our company name on the invoices. Please note, we are not trying to dodge our responsibilities and are only in this position as we were knocked for around £45k by someone much bigger. Thank you very much.
