Thank you for coming back to me so quickly.
I did mean 2012 - please excuse the typo.
I made a claim to the NI fund and received a small payment in January of this year.
I was employed in the UK by a UK company and I commuted to and fro from here in France.
As a primary creditor, being an employee, I know they have sufficient funds available from the debtors ledger (I was the Sales Director (by title only) so I had access to this information before the company was put into voluntary liquidation.
The letter I received provided no detail as to why they are only going to pay me 1 week and that figure was subject to the deduction of the NI fund monies I was paid in January.
The reason for wanting some advice is that all does not appear to be "open book" with the bankruptcy firm (Duff & Phelps of Manchester) and my main concern is that due to my lateness in contacting them on Monday next week, they will state that they have arranged the disbursements and I am too late to do anything about it because the 21 days from the date of their letter has more than expired, through no fault of my own.
Therefore, due to my last statement, in your opinion what reasonable grounds do I have to go back and contest the offer of payment please?
