  1. My ex business partner bought my 50% share of our previous Brisbane based business . He has paid some money but is now reluctant to pay the balance.
    An agreement was drawn up by our accountant and agreed to by us.
    He still owes me approximately $ 200,000.00 . I know he has a bank account with $ 140,000.00 sitting there.
    Can you assist with this ?
