Hello everyone, I would like to ask for your advice regarding a contract I needed to terminate with an online marketing company. In June 2019, my husband and I opened a bakery in London. Being an East European comfort food shop in a mostly Asian area it took us quite a long time to penetrate the market. Considering this situation, in January 2020 we accepted the collaboration proposal from a marketing company, which used Instagram influencers to advertise the business. It did not help too much, as only 3 influencers visited us during the first 2 months. In March 2020 when the lockdown was imposed, we had to close the bakery. I informed the marketing company about the closure and we decided to pause the contract. However, we reopened the shop in July 2020, but with the schools and offices still closed, we could not meet the ends and we were forced to permanently close at the end of August 2020. We were not able even to pay the rent for the shop, so we used our two months deposit for July and August. We did not receive any government grant or business support, as the business rate was included in the rent, so the landlord was the beneficiary of this grant. However, we were required to fully pay the rent of £3000/month during the lockdown, except for April 2020. We also applied for the discretionary grant, which was denied because we sent the lease agreement signed in June 2020, not the one signed in June 2019(we were on a yearly contract). During the lockdown, the marketing company contacted me several times to restart advertising the products. I explained that we are still closed and that I will inform them when we reopen. As we were forced to cease our activity, in July 2020 I have informed the marketing company and I requested the termination of the contract which was signed in January 2020 for 1 year. They sent me a contract termination confirmation with the date of May 2021. I emailed them a few times explaining that the bakery does not exist anymore, so there is no object for the contract, but they keep sending invoices. Moreover, they threaten me with a debt recovery company being involved. I also sent them the eviction notice and the contract termination from the landlord, as they requested it before proceeding with the termination of the contract. Any advice or ideas on what to do next is more than welcome. Thank you.
