About this document

If you issue a statutory demand, you can follow it up 21 days later with a winding up petition. There is nothing, but nothing that concentrates someone’s mind more than prospective wipe out. Of course, if you have done your homework, you never need to issue the petition.

The procedure is very easy to follow. All you need are a couple of forms and a stamp; no solicitors, no court fees.

Who will use this document?

Great, really easy to follow and appreciated the sample letters also that came with the download too.

Only improvement for me would be to explain in the notes which court details to add to the SD - I had to look elsewhere to find the answer, as I did not know if it was a court local to me or the company I was sending the SD too - but apart from that, everything was worthwhile. (FYI It needs to be the one closest to the company!)

I feel completely reassured that I have filled in and followed the process, all because of these downloaded guide and templates. Well worth it!

The forms and instructions provided were clear, precise and exactly what I was looking for.

it was the first time I had to issue a stat demand and the forms purchased from Net Lawman were a great help.

Also did the trick in relation to the money owed so very happy overall.

Simple easy download. The document is easy to manipulate and certainly worth the money to have the confidence you are covering all legal and statutory bases. Would definitely recommend and use again as needed. Thanks!
