    Hi All

    Received a summons for non-payment of business rates, the company is insolvent and has ceased trading.
    Do I need to appear in the court? What shall I do? Any advice will be really helpful.

    TIA

    Did you vacate the premises prior to the company being struck off?
    Did you have access to the premises?

    The OP has a PG on the lease and the landlord has started County court claim on it.

    Its not relevant if the company is insolvent called in a IP or anything, the PG is in his name as a guarantor the bill will be paid

    Sorry just grin and bear it or talk to the landlord and see if he will take payments over time

    At the moment there is no one dealing with the company affairs. I was advised if I had to declare myself bankrupt it would end everything.
    Should I start the SB plan and notify the creditors?

    Interesting question.
    Would everything now come down to the official receiver to act?

    Hi

    It is a company debt therefore if the company has no assets then not much can happen.

    You mention that you have been made bankrupt so the PG on the lease is a creditor of your bankruptcy.

    Regards

    Gavin

    Hi Gavin,

    Sorry, I don’t understand the second paragraph if you can please explain. I am the PG on the lease, so how can I be a creditor of my bankruptcy?

    Thanks
