In a liquidation we report initially within five working days of our appointment (voluntary liquidations), or up to 25 working days (court appointed liquidations). We then report six monthly throughout the liquidation, and provide a final report on ceasing to act. These reports are mailed to all creditors who submit claims and filed at the Companies Office.
If you have a question regarding a specific case, please contact the manager of that case, whose details will be contained in the reports. We are always happy to answer questions from creditors, where this does not breach any confidentiality issues.
