A compulsory liquidation is the result of a winding up order. It is the last resort for creditors seeking to reclaim monies when all else has failed. Even if your initial debt is paid to the petitioning creditor it is possible for other creditors to take over the petition and continue the court action. Nonetheless with the right business plan and early action it may be possible to turn your business around.

Before a winding up order is made the creditor has to file a winding up petition in Court. This comes at a considerable cost to the creditor and starts the process of shutting your company down, triggering the sale of its assets at a later point, which will be used to against the debt.
