Hi I have to put one of my Media Limited companies into insolvency - am looking at strike off and advising creditors today: I am writing to all creditors today and to ensure they receive the letters in unison, it is legal for me to send them in an email format as a PDF attachment then say I will send hard copy in post the next day?
It will be DS01 - I ceased trading on 7th January 2014
Hi thank you. I am aware of the process and all is fine. I just wanted to ensure that email was okay with a pdf attachment.
Another couple of questions - I also changed the company name so am sending the insolvency notices on new company letterhead.

Because we are looking to secure investment and try and run the event that failed again, I want to ensure goodwill with my creditors.
Would it therefore be considered legal (that is, it does not look like I am trying to influence creditors not to wind the company up) if I wrote
another letter and emailed and posted to them as follows:

As notified independently in writing to you, XXX Media Limited ceased trading on 7th January 2014.

What is the bar? I have been advised that I am entitled to strike off after three months from the date of change.
