    Is it possible to find out from official records the circumstances under which a particular company appointed liquidators ?

    Eg. what / who forced them into doing it, how much was outstanding etc ?

    Would the liquidator not tell you information relevant to you?

    @Mr D i would have thought that you couldn't just phone up the liquidator and ask questions about a company i have nothing to do with due to data protection, but i wondered if it was a matter of public record. Ive read the article in the gazette, but there isnt anything tangible in there.

    If I recall the DPA only applies to individuals. I had a few arguments about doing a credit check on a company who wished to join a networking group, and the DPA was thrown about, and quickly shot down as irrelevant.

    As a creditor I have received reports from liquidators with a brief explanation as to how the liquidation came about.

    They will file reports and updates with companies house. I’m not sure it’s a requirement, but the narrative will often cover events leading up to the event.

    Oh sorry, assumed you were a creditor so a party to some of the information.
