It is a Pe company and goes to schools. They also have a football club as well which I work for. It's not a charity. He has people like accountants and one parent which help him to run it. All the other coaches ask him and so do I but he's just making excuses like next week. I made countless amount of messages
I'd hazard a guess that you probably have enough evidence to begin a court claim.

You are required to send a letter before action detailing to the other party the amount you believe you are owed and the reasons for it - you must give them a reasonable time to respond (two weeks will be fine).

Most would cough up at this point.

Letter before action.

Small claims. If he doesn't respond, will be judgment by default.

Yes, but you'll need a litigation friend.

It's just someone who will deal with the case on your behalf - they should have your best interests at heart, so your parents would be ideal candidates.

The vast majority of people settle before you even initiate court action.

A letter advising that you INTEND to begin action (you have to send this first anyway, it's part of the rules) is often all that's required to get payment.

Should the other party ignore that, it only costs £70 to claim the £700 you are owed - you would get this back too if you won.

That's sort of why I've been asking you questions - collect up any and all evidence you have.

So someone hasn't paid you and you decided to continue working for them for an extra 8 months? I really don't know anything positive to say but listen to the advice you've been given in this thread about a small claims court case.

It's alright, just learn your lesson and move on. Definitely follow procedure as others said e.g. letter first then w/e but yeah.

You'll get what you're owed with court fees returned to you, as well as statutory interest at a rate of 8% per annum.
