Hi all, Not entirely sure this is the right place and I hope this post makes sense and someone is able to assist me. At the end of last year I was offered a partnership with a guy I subcontracted for. Things have seemed to progress well since January, although I am doing all of the work, whilst he provides the office and work space. The details are that I am actually in a partnership with his wife as (he says) he is a director of a few companies so doesn't want to add another (I now think, that this may not be the case and more to do with previous failed business's) I provide all the know how, ability and drive where he provides a roof over our heads so to speak. Despite my pushing it took months for us to set up a bank account, some of it down to lack of interest from my business partner, some of it the banks fault, during this time we accepted cheques as payment (didn't expect the application to take as long as it did.) Some cash payments and cheques were stored in his company safe, then transfered to a private safe without my knowledge. To cut a long story short, after some investigation by myself I have found 2 cheques totalling around £5000.00 have banked, but not in my company account. I am told the cheques are still in the safe. My concerns are this, 1, A second bank account in the company name must be active without me as a director as a account holder without my knowledge. 2, The cheques have been cashed at a payday loan shop or some such. Incedently no sort code is listed on customers bank statements. 3, The lies about the money's whereabouts. So, where does this leave me? To get us started, stock was purchased through his company, so he is owed some money to pay back those initial purchases. No authorisation has been given by me as a director to cash those cheques, but even if it had they haven't been cashed in the company account. I guess the quick question is, can I confront him and tell him his behaviour is unacceptable and a breach of trust and as such no business relationship is now workable, and in so doing do I have grounds to leave with all my business assets intact, albeit his wife is a partner in the company? As I see it at the very worst fraud has been committed and could and probably should be taken further. I am all over the place at present with this and am crossing between anger, confussion and determination to get shut of dead wood! Sorry for the long post.
