Winding-Up Petitions | A Creditors Guide
Winding-Up Petition

A winding-up petition (WUP) allows a creditor to initiate the court process for the liquidation of a company if it has not paid its debts.

A winding-up petition is a serious legal matter that can have grave consequences for a company and its directors.

Directors must be able to make an informed decision when confronted with this scenario by understanding the process and its implications.

For an overview of winding-up petitions and their potential effects on a debtor company, its stakeholders, and how they operate, we have created a guide called 'Winding-Up Petitions, a Creditors Guide'.
