    Another issue that is making this whole matter an impossible task to sort out is … the husband, the accountant and the solicitor (masquerading as Company Secretary and acting as Proxy) are all Freemasons!

    A freemason’s oath holds inevitably the implication that loyalty to fellow freemasons may supersede any other loyalty even the rule of law.

      1. What happens when the late filing penalties are triggered. How long is the Company given to pay them?
      2. What happens if the Company does not pay them or can’t pay them immediately.
      3. I will need to make a claim to court to recover the costs incurred (penalties) and make the previous Directors and husband liable. That will take months some times years to get an order from the court and the money.
      4. These Tribunal proceedings have already taken nearly three years! And we are no where near a conclusion.
      5. The executor of the deceased shareholder is the husband !! How do I find out who the solicitor is who would be dealing with probate?
      1 All I can find is that the date for payment is stated on the demand
      2 You can try to appeal against the penalty but there are limited grounds or you can request payment in instalments
      3-5 I would ask the manager to pay and she can then take steps to recover amounts. Did she not seek to recover company expenses?

        2. Another accountant will probably not want to get involved when they are aware of the dispute.
        The accountant I have appointed will not act until the dispute is over.

        3. Is there a contact number for ICAEW. The previous accountant has given me a case number and name who he spoke to but, on the site there is no contact number for non members to call. It appears only members have access.

        4. If I submitted the accounts as you suggest. Would I be breaching any accounting rules or regulations.
        1 You do not need an accountant to prepare statutory accounts, if you look at the last set of accounts which were filed, there was no mention of an accountant and no accountant's report. Companies House will accept anything as long as it is signed by a director, see page 4 (actually numbered 2). It is hardly onerous, you are only confirming 2 figures which are unchanged.
        2 You may be able to find an unqualified accountant to act but there could be difficulty with no accounting information available. You would need to sign a letter confirming that you accept responsibility for the accounts anyway, so I cannot see the point of paying any extra cost.

          The close relationship between the trouble makers hasn't got them very far to date, you seem to be winning most of the battles.There doesn't seem to be any need for you to join a secret society yet.

            "see page 4 (actually numbered 2). It is hardly onerous, you are only confirming 2 figures which are unchanged."

            1. I have been onto the Companies House site and opened the pdf of the 2017 accounts to checkout page 4 (numbered page 2) and there are no figures! It is titled "Balance Sheet (continued) as at 31 December 2017"
            and below that the name of the Directors and the company Registration number.

            2. The Download version would not open because I don't have the application to open it apparently.

            3. Do I need to start the process "File your company accounts" before I can see the 2 figures that you refer to.

            4. What column are the 2 figures that will be unchanged itemised under?

            5.I am nervous to start the online process of "File your company accounts" before I know what I am doing so I don't file anything incorrectly.


              I agree, the actual numbers are contained on page 3, confusingly numbered 1. I can send you a PDF by private message if you wish..

              The online filing is quite simple, there are a series of questions to answer and you complete the numbers. It automatically fills in the totals and there are various checks built in to avoid errors. It allows you to check the information before you submit for filing.



                How can you become appointed as a director if the majority of members don't agree and have not voted you in as a director at an AGM?


                  [QUOTE=eagle2;n1164773]I I can send you a PDF by private message if you wish..

                  Thank you that would be useful.


                    I'd be very wary of filing a false financial instrument particularly with the revelations about the other parties


                      If you were filing a false document, I would agree, however, you are not and there is a greater risk of being personally responsible for the ongoing penalties which are being incurred. You are acting consistently with your claim that the previous officers of the Company could and should have filed statutory accounts.


                        I agree with Eagle 2 - As Director I am complying with the Companies Act 2006 to act in the best interests of the Company.

                          Am in similar situation as OP. Lease makes no mention of loft or attic space by word - but the loft is not included in the plan appended to the lease.

                          I would assume that as a detailed plan of the demise is in included - one can assume that what is not on that plan...

                          The parts of the lease that you quote in the above part of your original post, particularly the bits I've highlighted in red, make it clear that the 'landlord' (i.e. the freeholder) is responsible for maintaining the boundary walls, and that the leases definition of "building" does include...

                          Hi all,

                          Long time lurker of this forum and recent new member. Have always found the forum incredibly helpful so thank you! Have now got an issue with our freeholder that I could use some specific advice on (have tried searching for similar posts but to no avail).

                          Realistically, they don't.
                          That's the type of situation that my comments in this old thread were highlighting.

                          If the directors are breaching the lease, and can't be made to understand that they can't do this, the only real option is to get control of the management of the property...

                          Not sure if this is the right place for this query but anyway, I'm a first time buyer and have been searching for a property for like two years now (not continuously but on and off and obv covid halted my search for a while). I found a really nice 2 bedroom flat for under £320,000 in a block of around...

                          I would be raising a formal complaint with conveyancer if they didnt fully advise you.

                          Yep, you have to contribute your share of building upkeep. It does however sound like there should be section 20 consultation so maybe ask to see the quotes. They might be claiming exemption...

                          He told us about his intentions Monday 18th October and intends to cut the supply on Friday 22nd.
