  • small shop and I haven't been paying the water bill

    Hi I own a small shop and I haven't been paying the water bill (I was in dispute with them) and owe United Utilities 4,537. The account is in the name of the trading name (ie ABC shop) and United Utilities do not know my name or the name of my business partner.

    We now trade under a limited company. I have a number of questions if anyone can help thanks-:

    1 Can a trading name be taken to county court and have a judgment awarded against it.?

    2 If a CCJ was awarded how would United Utilities recover debt or could they?

    3 What is my best course of action? I can't afford to pay the bill.

    Thanks for any help.

    2. There are a number of ways they can get at your money or assets.
