Hello, I hope someone can help. About seven years ago I started a business with my co-Director. We both put in some money to get things off the ground. She put in a little more than me (15k against my 12k) so it was agreed she’d have more shares than me. The business is doing well with 10-20k turnover each month. We both take a salary and then any left over at the end of the year is paid as dividends. I know that we had a good year last year but when it came to receiving dividends, my co-Director told me there was nothing in the account. She organises the finances along with an accountant. I have access to the bank statements so looked back to see where the money had gone. There was one payment of 30k to herself with the note “repayment of loan”. I asked her about this and she said it was money she’d put into the business on top of the initial start up costs. I wasn’t aware of her or anyone putting 30k (or anything) into the business after the initial startup when we both put money in. I’d therefore like to see the bank statements going back to when we first started the business as this is the second time she’s paid herself an amount that she says was repayment for money she had put in (last time it was only 4K). If she did indeed put the money in then fine, if not then I’m not willing to let her keep taking large sums out. The statements online only go back 12 months and we have no local branch. The account is in both our names as directors. How would I go about obtaining historic statements or better still just a list of payments made by her and myself into the business account? Phone the bank? I don’t know if this is relevant but I also recently discovered via my accountant that my shares in the business are Class B and my co-Director’s shares are Class A. When we started the business we agreed on the division of shares because she invested more. But there was no mention of different share classes. My accountant tells me that my shares “should” convert to Class A soon but I don’t know how that works and whether I should wait for that to happen before addressing this payment of 30k. This is frustrating because the business is doing well, our staff are great, my salary is good, and I love doing what I do, but I need to be sure my co-Director isn’t taking money that she shouldn’t otherwise it could go on forever. I also don’t want to accuse her of this outright, which is why I’d like to check the bank statements for myself. Any advice gratefully appreciated!
