It costs £1,600 to submit the petition and £280 for the court hearing. You’ll get a date for the hearing if the court accepts your petition. Before the court hearing, you must:
give (‘serve’) a copy of the petition to your company - fill in a certificate of service to let the court know you’ve done this
put an advert in The Gazette at least 7 days before the hearing
send a copy of the advert and the certificate of service to the court
You or your solicitor must be at the court hearing. You do not have to give any evidence.
If the court gives a winding-up order, the court will put an official receiver in charge of the liquidation. They’ll start liquidating your company. A copy of the winding-up order will be sent to your company’s registered office.
