Thanks for your question.
Yes, there is nothing stopping the French company from issuing proceedings in this country and seeking to enforce the debt against a person's UK based assets. It's generally a bit more expensive for a foreign company to do this, but it is done and if they will seek to do so if the amount of money owed is significant and the person does not have assets in France against which they could enforce judegment from a French Court.
I hope this is not bad news.

The money owed is approx 3000 pounds and unfortunately i am experiencing financial
problems. I do not have french assets and am now back in the uk. Will they pursue
the money owed.
For that amount, it's possible yes. If it were half that then probably not. It's just about borderline and it's depend on what kind of policy they have in respect of unpaid loans I'm afraid.
Sorry it could not be better news.
