Good evening.
I have recently started my own company (soul trader). I'm currently not making any money at all and without realising got myself attached to a business to business advertising contract with no cooling off period.
My question is... If I fold my business (sole trader) and move back to London and get a job, do I still need to honour this contract & if I default on the payments, what will be the repercussions???

I've tried to be reasonable with this company but they don't wanna know. How can I get out of this money grabbing contract as its not for me and I can't afford it?
