Most frequent questions and answers

If you are a company director, you should certainly not just resign (which could be a breach of your duty as a company director) and do not just continue to trade (which could lead to personal liability). Take advice as soon as possible and act on that advice and, in particular, do not transfer assets without first obtaining advice.

Liquidation is a formal insolvency procedure that brings the existence of a company to an end.  There are three main methods for liquidation; members’ voluntary liquidation, creditors’ voluntary liquidation and compulsory liquidation. In each a liquidator will take over from the directors and assume day to day control of the company.

You could be made personally liable for your company’s debts and could face criminal prosecution, a fine, and/or disqualification as a director. For the next five years you are not allowed to be a director of another company with a similar name without the court’s permission.
