I recently closed my small business and left a few hundred £s in the business account with Barclays. After receiving notification that the company has been officially struck off, I contacted Barclays to go about getting the remaining funds out. They inform me that they "followed protocol" and now the account has been frozen and my next move should be to contact a solicitor.
Is there anything can I do about this? It seems mad that they can freeze the account yet offer no solution or even advice to go about getting the funds back. I don't see how a solicitor has any more authority than I do over the bank account. I actually don't even have a solicitor and predict that the process of hiring one will outweigh the funds I'd recover.
