There are many reasons why you may want a liquidator to be removed.

For example, if you are a creditor:

  • You want an aggressive liquidator.
  • They will look at the affairs of the company.
  • They will investigate overdrawn current accounts.
  • They will investigate voidable transactions.
  • They will investigate transactions at under value.
  • They will investigate breaches of duties.

If you are a shareholder, you want a liquidator:

  • Who will do nothing!
  • You want to pay a fee to procure this.

The contrast is very stark!

There are things a liquidator CAN do. There are things that a liquidator MUST do.

A liquidator MUST take possession of and protect assets for the benefit of creditors.

A liquidator does not need to litigate, if they don’t wish to.

There are two practical ways in which to remove a liquidator:

  • By majority vote of creditors at a creditors meeting; or
  • If the liquidator breaches duties, by obtaining a High Court order.
