New Companies House document entitled "Liquidation and Insolvency."

Companies House have issued a new guidance document entitled: "Liquidation and Insolvency." Whilst on the elementary side, the document still makes very interesting reading. The document contains information on: 

  • "Introduction
  • Chapter 1 - General information 
  • Chapter 2 - Corporate [sic] voluntary arrangements (CVA) including CVA moratoria 
  • Chapter 3 - 'In administration' and 'administration orders' - Cases beginning on or after 15 September 2003: In administration 
  • Chapter 4 - Receivers 
  • Chapter 5 - Voluntary liquidation
  • Chapter 6 - Compulsory liquidation
  • Chapter 7 - European cross-border insolvency proceedings
  • Chapter 8 - Frequently asked questions
  • Chapter 9 - Quality of documents
  • Chapter 10 - Further information"

Dear Mr Cohen

For my recent and widely cited JBL article on CVAs (with the correct terminology) see:

Thanks for the eagle eye pointer!
