In the case of GHLM Trading Limited -v- Maroo and others  EWHC 61 (Ch) the High Court considered claims brought by a company against its directors and found that the burden of proof in relation to credit entries in a director’s loan account and in relation to expenses said to have been incurred on the company’s behalf was on the director. The Court also considered and made a finding that where a director caused his company to enter into a contract in his own interests and contrary to the interests of the company, its shareholders or creditors, and the counterparty had notice of that, the contract was void.
