Hi , maybe I didn't make my self clear enough. I know the process for dissolving the company, and I submitted the striking off application which was accepted by Companies house. But my old opponents objected to this , supposedly until THEY are satisfied that I actually have nothing to do with this new product and I haven't in fact breached my previous consent order. I know that I have done nothing wrong ( nothing at all in fact ) , and that they are wasting my time , so I just want to walk away . The question was, in the event of me resigning, and the company is left with no director , are there any possible consequences for me personally in any way , bearing in mind that there is some sort of dispute , or alleged dispute. The company registered office is also only a virtual office ?
I signed a consent order months ago essentially agreeing that I will not trade with a particular product and brand, I have honoured that( in fact I haven't traded with anything ) . Just because they think I know something , or I may be involved, they think I am obliged to help them , and I have no desire to help them at all, I have better things to do . I cant really understand why they are objecting to the striking off as well, because ultimately that kills the competition that they were so concerned about off completely . I cant also see why they think this can force me to cooperate ?
I will opt out for another expert in case they have an idea how to deal with this.
Yes . If I just resign and walk away knowing that effectively there is a problem ( even though its not caused by me ) , would I have broken any laws in terms of directors responsibility etc .
What my opponents are saying is that they would enforce the consent order unless I can tell them who the culprit is - and I don't know. What this means in practise is that they would pursue my company for their legal costs , and demand that I destroy the product etc, which I don't have anyway . As I know that I have done nothing wrong , which I have told them clearly , and I don't know who has produced a product with the same name as the one that we had a court order over ( in Holland even) , can I just resign and walk away . They objected to the company being struck off, but in reality this means nothing to me. If I resign, can they do anything to me , as the consent order was signed by me on behalf of the limited company ( the dispute and all documentation was clearly with the company and me as director, nothing personal ) . I have attached consent order if it helps.
In case I need to speak to you further , can I have your contact details, and a summary of your expertise.
