Corporate Insolvency


Liquidation is a process whereby once a Company is placed into liquidation the liquidator secures the books, records and assets of the company.

There are three types of Liquidation procedures:

Creditors Voluntary Liquidation

Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation is usually initiated by the Company’s directors due to the company being insolvent. The board of directors will have a board meeting to agree that the Company should be placed into liquidation and notice then is given to shareholders and creditors.

Members Voluntary Liquidation

A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation winds up solvent companies, and distributes surplus funds back to the shareholders.

Court Liquidation

A Court Liquidation known as an Official Liquidation is an appointment of a Liquidator by order of the High Court.
