I was part-owner in a limited company in Sweden that was made bankrupt. I had underwritten start-up loans for the company. The company was made bankrupt and I was left with the debts. The other owners don't have any money and refer to me. There were no remarks on the bankruptcy and owing money is not a criminal offense in Sweden. I now want to go back home to the UK and wonder if these debts can be collected in the UK? There are some assets in the company which are being sold, and they should probably cover it. I asked the lawyer and he said they wouldn't do anything in the UK, but I am worried that I just bring the problem back home to the UK.
Do you know what the rules are?
