Liquidation of a Company

For anyone facing the liquidation of a company, it will no doubt have been a difficult process facing up to the reality that your company may need to cease existence due to unpaid debts. In the UK, company liquidation is a terminal proceeding, and is a method used to realise the assets of a company before it closes with a view to issuing distributions to creditors.

Key points that you should be aware of with regards to the liquidation of a company through professional liquidation services in the UK include:

  • The assets of the company are sold to make payments to creditors
  • After a liquidation, the business no longer exists in its current legal entity
  • You give up the company and insolvency practitioners seek to recover as much as possible to repay creditors
  • The company will be dissolved and cease to exist

By quickly taking back control we can help you solve the problems that the business has.

Liquidating a company can take anything from 7 days to 2 years.

Four Key Questions on Liquidation

How do you know if liquidation is the right option?

In some instances, the business may enter into an administration process, which could then be unsuccessful. Entering liquidation would then be the result. Both administration and insolvency are entered into as the business is either unable to pay their debts when they fall due, or their liabilities are larger than their assets.

Should you reach a point where neither insolvency or administration is a viable option, you will likely have to proceed with the liquidation of your company. Many businesses feel an administration is the way to go, but they may not meet the criteria. At this point, you need to find the best liquidation services to support you in the process.
