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.

A validation order court fee is one of the costs which is associated with obtaining a validation order at court. In addition, there are

  • legal fees from the solicitors acting for you to make the application; and
  • the cost of the barrister to attend the court hearing on the day and seek the appropriate validation order from the court.

Despite the costs incurred in a validation order process, the benefits can be huge. A successful validation order can deal with a frozen bank account, enable the unfreezing of company bank accounts and payments out to critical suppliers, staff and creditors and can also lead the way in the winding up order being reversed and the company continuing to trade after a winding up order is made.

A validation order with expert lawyers behind it has every prospect of success and at Francis Wilks & Jones we have a brilliant track record in dealing with frozen bank account situations, unfreezing bank accounts and obtaining the appropriate validation orders which are required by a client.
