Trading companies are usually closed down, although sometimes they may continue to trade for a short time so the business can be sold.
When the liquidation is complete, the company is removed from the Companies Office Register.
If the company goes into liquidation or the person enters a personal insolvency procedure, e.g.
bankruptcy, the guarantor will have to repay the creditor.
Moreover, the court may dismiss a chapter 7 case filed by an individual whose debts are primarily consumer rather than business debts if the court finds that the granting of relief would be an abuse of chapter 7. Unless the debtor overcomes the presumption of abuse, the case will generally be converted to chapter 13 (with the debtor's consent) or will be dismissed. Part of the debtor's property may be subject to liens and mortgages that pledge the property to other creditors. Subject to the means test described above for individual debtors, relief is available under chapter 7 irrespective of the amount of the debtor's debts or whether the debtor is solvent or insolvent.
In addition, the Bankruptcy Code will allow the debtor to keep certain "exempt" property; but a trustee will liquidate the debtor's remaining assets. An individual cannot file under chapter 7 or any other chapter, however, if during the preceding 180 days a prior bankruptcy petition was dismissed due to the debtor's willful failure to appear before the court or comply with orders of the court, or the debtor voluntarily dismissed the previous case after creditors sought relief from the bankruptcy court to recover property upon which they hold liens.
Position classification standards provide information used in determining the occupational series and title for positions performing white collar work in the Federal Government.
They also provide grading criteria for positions classified under the General Schedule (GS) Classification System.
In finance and economics, liquidation is an event that usually occurs when a company is insolvent, meaning it cannot pay its obligations as and when they come due. Bankruptcy Code governs liquidation proceedings; solvent companies can also file for Chapter 7, but this is uncommon.
The company’s operations are brought to an end, and its assets are divvied up among creditors and shareholders, according to the priority of their claims. Not all bankruptcies involve liquidation; Chapter 11, for example, involves rehabilitating the bankrupt entity and restructuring its debts.
If there is a surplus after all the company assets have been dealt with and the debts and liquidation expenses have been paid, then it will be distributed back to the shareholders.
