How quickly can you do it?
The company is first placed into liquidation by its shareholders.
A creditors meeting is then held ratifying the directors choice of liquidator/s or nominating and potentially appointing their own choice of liquidator/s.
Usually the creditors meeting is held straight after the shareholder’s meeting.
The shareholders are due a minimum of 14 days notice of the meeting unless they consent to short notice.
The creditors are entitled to 7 days’ notice of the meeting.
In order to send the notices calling the meeting to creditors and shareholders the Directors will need to give all the contact information to the IP.
So the more proactive the directors the quicker the IP can send the notices out.
The IP will also need time in-between receiving instruction to act, to holding the meetings in order to help produce statutory information to be presented at the creditors meeting by the directors.
