Hi, I have provided an initial
Form E to my ex's solicitor whilst I was in the process of having my Business accounts completed, this has now been done and I am updating Form E ready to exchange. My ex's solicitor has asked for the past 12 months business bank account statements to be provided. I don't see anywhere on Form E where this is a requirement, is this something which should be provided? There is nothing to hide but I am already jumping through hoops answering questions from the initial Form so want to ensure no further questions are raised.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
I am a Ltd company and my understanding is the Ltd company is a separate entity to me personally as you say so no requirement to provide the statements. I've got my business accounts which I'll be sending along with the
The company is still an asset so information will be required. A set of company accounts will provide the necessary information as long as they are fairly current. It may be worthwhile obtaining a summary update, particularly if your trading has dropped off since the last set of full accounts.
Hi. I see this post is a few years old and just wondered what the outcome was with regards to limited company bank statements. I am just about to go through the same and my stbx finished mediation because I refused to disclose company bank statement. I did provide accounts for 3 years that are filed with companies house. My understanding is the same, a limited company is a separate entity. I am a 100% shareholder and I think my stbx is confusing the fact she thinks I’m a sole trader and self employed but I’m actually an employee and director of the limited company. Thanks in advance.
Not the OP but during my divorce I had to produce all bank statements for my Ltd company as well as the annual accounts which were prepared ahead of the filing date.
I think a lot depends on whether the company only has you as a director.
If you are the sole shareholder/director then you have 100% control of company funds.
If there is nothing to hide, I cannot see why you would have a problem. As Charles said, a summary update could also be provided.
If this ends up in court, they can ask the judge to order that they are produced.
