Compulsory Liquidation usually starts when an unpaid creditor files a winding up petition in court against a company they believe is insolvent.

If the court agrees to make the order, the case is sent to the official receiver, a court official employed by the government's Insolvency Service.

What is a Liquidator?

After the official receiver confirms there are assets to realise and investigations to conduct, they'll nominate an insolvency practitioner (IP) to Liquidate the company.

Liquidators act on behalf of the court and have far-reaching statutory powers. They report to the Insolvency Service on the director's conduct, and will investigate:

  • The company director
  • The company's affairs
  • Reasons why the company failed

All the company's contracts usually terminate on the date of Liquidation.
