A winding up petition is a type of issued court document.

A winding up petition can be issued by a range of different parties but commonly it is issued by a creditor of a company seeking to collect the monies due and owing to it. It is often described as the “nuclear option” of debt recovery work.

The winding up procedure for issuing a petition is technical and we would recommend that you seek legal advice to avoid the many mistakes which can be made.
