Insolvent companies and disqualified directors
The information in this section (links to the left) refers to investigations into companies which have entered into formal insolvency proceedings i.e. administration, administrative receivership, voluntary and compulsory liquidation in England, Wales and Scotland.
Where misconduct is identified then we can seek to secure remedies, including, where this is in the public interest, the institution of civil proceedings such as director disqualification. We also report allegations of criminality to prosecuting authorities (mainly to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills).
For information on investigations into companies and limited liability partnerships which are actively trading, or which have ceased trading without entering into insolvency proceedings, using powers under the Companies Acts please click here.
