the enforcement office entered the premises yesterday in my absence and hand delivered the 'Notice of legal control of goods' to one of my staff members. I have telephoned the company acting - 'Sherforce' They have told me that I now need to pay £996 for the original debt, £101.75 for the cost of execution & £1049.84 for the court enforcement officer, totalling £2154.21.
The court has not yet acknowleded receipt of the application to set aside which was sent to them ten days ago.
Sherforce have also told me that a van will be sent today to collect goods and a further £1100 will be incurred
