Issue of Statutory Demand

A Statutory Demand is an official demand for any debt under 6 years of age to be paid. The full amount must be paid – or an agreement to pay must be reached- within 21 days. If after 21 days your debtor has still taken neither of these options you may apply to bankrupt them or wind up their company.

The issue of a Statutory Demand is something which is done subject to the acknowledgement of the debt but refusal to settle the debt.
