Directors UK Bank Personal Guarantee Debt Claim Demands and the IBAS Christmas Warning Post

Christmas 2019 is fast approaching and Banks will use their normal 'holiday' strategy on legal claims.

  • That means they will be already preparing their Christmas legal claims.
  • Many are prepared deliberately to drop through your letterbox just before 'close of business' on Christmas Eve.
  • Getting 'advice' for a Director's Personal Guarantee Debt Claim around Christmas and New Year is extremely difficult.
  • Banks know that - whilst they have easy access to solicitors at all times their customers will not.
  • Between Christmas Eve 2019 and 2nd or 3rd January 2020 is a normal holiday period for most in the UK.
  • Therefore, good strategy (although extremely unfair) for banks to issue a claim ready for 'service' on Christmas Eve.
  • The 'service' on you will be deliberately timed for maximum effect for the bank's benefit.
  • The legal clock starts ticking once a claim is 'served' which puts the customer under extreme 'time' pressure.

Losing 10 days in the Christmas - New Year period doesn't help those with legal claims obtain help.

  • Banks know that customers will be forced to react - which means many customers will also attempt a DIY response.
  • Banks love DIY responses, as they know they will normally lead to the bank obtaining an 'easy judgement'.

OR

  • The customer just doesn't react at all and judgement is obtained by the bank by default.
  • DIY responses miss possible defences which are effective legal arguments to avoid 'strike out'.
  • We would suggest that anyone with a bank claim 'lurking' against them - obtains help.
  • Do not  get 'rushed' into answering a bank's legal claim without any help at Christmas.

The Bank’s Final letter for your business banking dispute complaint & business complaints to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS)

It is a fact that all banks spend considerable time and effort 'drafting' their Final response letter to the customer on complaints because they know that their Final Response letter is designed to persuade the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) to their position. By that time the bank’s customer services/complaints department will have already extracted all your information from you for their benefit by questioning you and then they will have dismissed your complaint/s.

Bank Final response letters are drafted and written by legally trained bank staff who are communicating with the FOS daily and are therefore completely aware of FOS decision making.

The Financial Ombudsman Service staff are aware that bank Final response letters are prepared by legally trained bank staff and the bank’s Final response letter will influence the FOS ‘investigator’.

Bank customers may believe their business banking dispute complaint/s will get a fair hearing by the FOS and from reading the FOS website may also be misled into believing that it is ‘easy’ to make a business banking complaint through the FOS.

However, banks possess very distinct advantages, which include legal knowledge, long experience of ‘complaint casework’ and know what is effective (for the bank). Banks also know how the FOS 'thinks' as they communicate regularly with the FOS by telephone.

The Financial Ombudsman Service do not calculate bank accounts to provide an independent calculation where they are required. The Financial Ombudsman Service will rely on bank methodology and bank calculations when dealing with a business banking account dispute.

The bank's Final letter allows you 6 months to make a complaint to the FOS.

What will the Independent Banking Advisory Service (IBAS) provide you for your business banking dispute complaint which the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) will not?

IBAS will carry out fully independent investigations of business bank accounts based on the customers complaint and will provide fully independent calculations with a report which can then be relied upon to evidence incorrect charging, bank errors and overcharging.

Historical banking account errors/bank charging mistakes and bank overcharging claims evidenced by IBAS account investigations and calculations enable effective business banking account complaint progression. IBAS has been calculating business bank account and overcharging complaints since the mid 1990's

IBAS account investigations enhance the customer's complaint with substance to evidence bank charging errors to the customers advantage.

IBAS will investigate business banking disputes which IBAS 'take on' and progress for the customer.

IBAS reports can then be relied upon for any business banking dispute which IBAS has accepted.

IBAS investigate Director’s Bank Personal Guarantee dispute complaints and assess all other security documents held by the bank for lending purposes to establish the facts and historical positions. Specific advice on business banking account/s disputes and further actions required are provided by IBAS once our investigations conclude.

Information from those we have assisted since 1992 show that other ‘advisors’, solicitors & also the FOS carried out very limited or basic ‘checks’ on business banking complaints. Basic ‘checks’ cannot identify customer defences, allow debt reduction or eliminate a debt being claimed.

It’s clear that ‘other advisors’ provide advice and ‘outcomes’ without necessary facts. That disadvantages or destroys the customer’s ‘case’. IBAS has a long established standard practice for investigating bank customer’s business banking account disputes in depthother ‘advisors’ do not do so.

We can act quickly to advise and protect you if you are facing liquidation, receivership and being threatened by bank business debt claims or Director's Personal Guarantee Debt Claims from company debts.

IBAS provides experienced specialist and practical advice to IBAS members on how best to deal with and control the bank’s ‘collection’ activities after demand of the debt has been made. What can you do and how best to do it? Can you 'get out of it' - is it possible to do so? Can you dilute your personal liability under a bank’s debt demand? Those questions (and a great many more) have been asked in cases where IBAS investigate bankers and the bank actions.

 

Business Bank Problems, Bank Dispute or Bank Charging dispute/s?

 

An IBAS member wrote in: "We could not recommend strongly enough to anyone struggling with the overzealous banks how helpful IBAS have been. When we consider how the bank treated us when we hadn’t done anything wrong, never missed a payment and had good loan to value rates, I can only surmise how aggressive they must be to others.

Once again many thanks for the help IBAS have given us both over the past two years. In the nicest way we hope never to require your services again! "- GL

IBAS provides specialist advice and resolution before litigation but if IBAS is involved immediately after demand for payment by a bank, our aim is to gain all information which we know is necessary to assess legal arguments - against existing case law. IBAS lay the 'groundwork' for successful defences by first preserving defences which exist - and yes, we have assisted in many litigation cases which have been won by our members after litigation in the County Court, High Court and the Court of Appeal.

Assumptions and theory do not work where a bank debt is being claimed from a director's personal guarantee, debt claim/company liquidation or company administration. CVA and Liquidation of Limited companies can present their own difficulties and Company Directors need to be aware of how asset sales and failure to collect business debts can alter their Director's Personal guarantee debt to the bank. It should be noted that an IVA arrangements will immediately force the bank to remove any overdrafts or loans previously agreed - so advise other than from the IVA or CVA provider themselves is necessary. IBAS 'case work' experience has shown us exactly how banks operate and we are not 'learning' on your case.

IBAS specialist knowledge and experience is unique only to IBAS because it's been gathered from IBAS investigations into business banking account disputes and bank mistakes and we use all our knowledge and experience in every 'case'.

A fully prepared defence can be drafted with the correct arguments. IBAS know how best to obtain all information necessary for defence purposes to prevent escalation quickly to a legal debt claim and avoid costly legal fees.

IBAS has represented UK businesses in numerous business banking investigations across all UK industries and our investigation into Bank overdrafts and business banking account charging has provided IBAS members with a very strong business banking negotiating position plus the support from a unique specialist, confidential, professional, business banking advice and direct assistance organisation.
