Up until three weeks ago, I was a Director of an start up import company. The founder of the company is the only other Director (and there are no other staff). I was not on any kind of payroll, and was working with him for free to establish the company. I also invested £5000, with a document stating that the money would be repaid when the company was able to do so. I don't have any shares. We both work remotely and our business relationship began to unravel as he wouldn't take my phone calls or answer my work emails. After repeated and failed attempts I made to meet to try to improve our business partnership, I phoned him to say that if he doesn't want me working with him, I shall resign. Without my knowledge, he then went onto Companies House and removed me as a Director. I have sent an email to him and the accountant, asking for a discussion to take place as to how my investment will be repaid. He has not responded to my emails. Would I have a case to take to the small claims court if he continues to not respond?
