Judges Demand

£29,000.00 Recovered following Statutory Demand for Controlled Waste Carrier

Published On: 1st May 2015

We can report that we have successfully recovered just over £29,000.00 from a Limited Company on behalf of a Controlled Waste Carrier in relation to products and services supplied.

We made direct contact with the debtor and supplied them with full evidence of the claim and outlined our Clients intentions to pursue this matter further if necessary, the debtor responded to our letter advising that the matter was fully disputed and claimed that the works hadn’t been carried out.

We discussed this with our Client and reviewed all the evidence on file, it transpired that this was a spurious dispute to try to avoid payment as our Client had signed delivery notes for each and every job completed to there satisfaction.

We attempted to outline this to them but still no payment, it was agreed the next best step would be to commence Winding Up Proceedings and proceed with the initial stage of a Statutory Demand.

A Statutory Demand was served on the debtor by a licences process server and the debtor had 21 days to pay the balance in full or 18 days to make an application to set aside the demand.

The debtor made contact with us via a Solicitor but surprisingly they didn’t make an application to set aside the Statutory Demand based on there initial dispute and instead made payment of £29,000.00 direct in to our account which are Client was happy to accept.
