PBC are pleased to report that having already paid preferential creditors in full a dividend of 44.58 pence in the pound was paid to unsecured creditors in a liquidation that, at first, appeared to have no distributable assets.

The company was placed into creditors’ voluntary liquidation in 2010 and following closure of the liquidation the company was dissolved. PBC were subsequently approached to restore the company to the register and act as liquidators to realise the outstanding director’s loan of approximately £100,000 which was unrealisable in the previous liquidation.

With the assistance of Katie Summers, a partner at Howes Percival LLP, a successful application was made to restore the company to enable recovery of the loan and subsequently a payment to be made to creditors.

Joint liquidator, Gary Pettit, said, “It is always pleasing to see returns made to creditors but the outcome and “out of the box” thinking surrounding this matter was particularly pleasing. I must also place on record my gratitude to Katie for the advice and assistance received”.
