If your company bank account has been frozen because of a winding up petition – we can help. A validation order application is normally the best way to proceed, allowing use of the bank account and to continue trading - plus avoiding the risk of personal liability as well. We have been helping businesses since 2002. Let our team of experts help you too.

We are often asked “how long can a bank account be frozen”?

At Francis Wilks & Jones we deal with many validation order applications and successfully get court permission for payments to be made out of the frozen bank account to important suppliers, staff or creditors. We have an excellent track record of success in this area.

We also can make applications to have the winding up order itself dismissed from court and the winding up order reversed. This is often another important aspect of any situation dealing with the company frozen bank account and another area our validation orders team can assist you with.
