Did the company fall into administration?
Ok no problem. So obviously they deal with the administration of the company so anything that comes after the dissolution will have to go through the administrators. There should be a solicitor who is holding the funds. You will want to contact the administrators of the company and have them contact the holder. They should be able to distribute the funds which are being held. This means that you will not have to 'resurrect" the company via companies house in order to get the funds distributed.
If the administrators have gone into liquidation they will still have to have all of the files by law so this is not an issue. If they have teamed up or been bought out by another company then it will simply be a case of contacting the new company as they will have to take on the files of the previous company. You will also want to chase them up about the final accounts as you should have had these. Hopefully the original administrators are still there and this should be dealt with fairly quickly.
