Winding up searches essentially refer to the process of searching for any winding up petitions initiated against a company. The search is conducted at the Insolvency and Companies List (formerly Companies Court) and provides information to lawyers and others that is vital in carrying out proper due diligence on companies. The information gathered during a search is crucial for businesses, investors, and lenders wishing to assess a particular company’s financial stability and potential risks.

What Do Our Winding Up Search Reports Offer?

Our highly trained and experienced searchers will thoroughly check a company’s name at the Insolvency and Companies List. This search aims to determine whether any pending winding up petitions are registered against the company. Once the search is complete, our detailed report will include the following:

  • Information on any pending winding up petitions
  • Any notices of intention to appoint an Administrator, notice of appointment of an Administrator, administration order, and application for the making of an administration order that appears on the records
  • A summary of any previously withdrawn or dismissed petitions filed in the last 36 months

Our goal is to provide our clients with quick results, and we strive to deliver the outcome of any winding up searches within 30 minutes during court opening hours, which are between 10.00am and 4.30pm on any working day.
