HomeCase studiesRecovering an official receiver deposit following the issue of a winding up petition

Why the client needed our help

Our client wanted help recovering £4,730 from a debtor.

How we helped

Following the debtor’s failure to respond to a letter before action, we took the next step of issuing and serving a winding up petition on them.

The outcome

Although the petition was served, it soon became clear that the debtor was in financial difficulty and would be unable to pay the debt. The winding up petition was withdrawn and the official receiver deposit recovered for our client. A liquidator was subsequently appointed to investigate the debtor company.
