Did the Bankrutpcy trustee take any assets from you when you filed your Bankruptcy?
When a Bankruptcy is filed and there are no assets, all the debtor's debts are discharged - whether or not they were listed in the Bankruptcy.
This means it does not matter that you did not list the company name.
And even if you have not listed the owner's name either - that debt was discharged.

If your company owed the money, why did you include this debt in your personal Bankruptcy?
