    Default Edward Carter solutions ceased trading

    I understand that Edward Carter Solutions Ltd has ceased trading.
    in 20 years working with contract agencies and as a contractor (13 years engaging contractors, 7 years working as a contractor), I think i remember this happening only once before.

    Now to wait for the administrators to contact me !

    Well at least there isn't a winding up order against it, so be thankful for small mercies I suppose.

    Good luck!

    Can't say I'm *that* surprised.

    Was through them for 2 years. Started all ok, couple of people left and the the ones who stayed always seems a little on the back foot with regards renewals. Had to chase payments a couple of times near the end (pre Covid) but resolved within a day or two.

    Then a month or so ago, had an email out of the blue from an accounts person. They'd been compromised and their OneDrive/SharePoint was being used to phish the contact list.

    Pity it’s only been mentioned on here about 4,000 times

    Expect 2p (at most) from any £1 owed you

    At least you can work direct with client now, or switch agencies ?

    Talk to client co... they *might* not have been invoiced by ECS yet, there *might* be a way to do it direct?

    they have been invoiced but have not yet paid them, thats the gutting thing as I know the money owed will be paid to them and then go to the other creditors before us ! (5 of us involved via the one client company)

    Perhaps... your timesheet(s) were incorrect? As an honest and just type of person, you should contact Client Co and offer to amend them asap... Thus the invoice needs to be amended too. Client Co should then give you a "well done" fee.
