How to carry out a search
A winding up petition search can be undertaken at the companies court central index of winding up petitions at any time. There is a special number to ring at the high court central index of winding up petitions to check whether a winding up petition has been issued against a company.
- however, it can be difficult to get through to that number and if necessary, we can arrange brief attendance at court to check behind the counter whether a company has a winding up petition against it;
- the importance of carrying out a companies court winding up central index search is to avoid the wasted costs and time of drafting a petition only to find out that someone has already issued one against it.
Other types of winding up petition searches include a search of the winding up petition London Gazette to see whether the winding up petition has been advertised at all.
