We have a big tax and vat bill that needs to be paid and we have no money to pay it. Our accountant isn't very helpful. We need to fold the company but need advise as to what to do and how to do this without being responsible for this debt. we started the company 10 years ago and have never defaulted but can no longer carry on.

This forum does not provide direct advice on how to fold a company, and in most instances, you may very well need assistance to do it properly. You may want to look here: bankruptcy.org.uk/company-liquidation-administration

If the debts you mention are just in the LTD company's name, and no one has signed as guarantor or signed for responsibility, then once the company is closed/liquidated, the debt goes with the company. If anyone has signed or guaranteed the liability, then they are also fully responsible.

If you have a serious debt problem, bankruptcy can free you from your debts within 12 months. As a solution for dealing with serious debt, bankruptcy is a last resort. Other debt solutions need to be explored first, to help determine if bankruptcy is the right debt solution for you.


Your financial affairs are put into the hands of an Official Receiver or Trustee, who will control all your assets - and if you own a property, this will also be included. These will be sold and the money used to pay as much as possible to your creditors.


There are consequences to bankruptcy which will affect your finances and work life. You may struggle to borrow money, for example, and will not be able to apply for certain jobs.


For some, bankruptcy is the right option and will put an end to pressure from creditors. Our team of experts are on hand to advise on the best solution to your debt problems - call now on 0800 002 9951.
