The liquidation of a company's assets gathered and sold to pay off its debts is known as winding up. When a corporation is wound up, the debts, expenses, and charges are first paid off and dispersed.
Once a Company is liquidated, it is formally dissolved and no longer exists.The legal process of winding up a company and ceasing all operations is known as winding up. The company's existence comes to an end after it is wound up, and the assets are managed to ensure that the stakeholders' interests are not affected.
• Voluntary winding up of a Company.
• Compulsory winding up of a company.
A specific resolution or a resolution taken during a general meeting might start the voluntary winding down process. The winding up can be carried out if any of the terms and conditions of the MOA are broken. A company might also be wound up if it lacks sufficient financial funds or cannot pay its debts. To sell all of the company's assets or transfer the stakes to others, the board of directors must pass a resolution.
A company's compulsory winding up can be carried out on the order of a tribunal or a court by the directors approving a special resolution proposing a court intervention during the company's board meeting.
• The company incorporation certificate and PAN card
• Certificate of bank account closure for the company
• An indemnity bond, which the directors should notarize
• The most current financial statement for the company
• A chartered accountant audited the statement of finances, which included all of the company's assets and liabilities (CA)
• Proof that 3/4 of the board members voted in favour of the resolution
• Request to have the company's name removed.
The directors and all company executives are free of any creditor liabilities and pressure once the liquidation procedure is completed.
If the board of directors passes the resolution willingly, they will disregard any legal action taken by the court or tribunal, giving company directors a platform to focus on other commercial prospects.
Because charges will be applied on the sale of assets, the expenditures or expenses associated with the liquidation procedure are pretty minimal.
During the liquidation process, any firm or entity that has engaged in a lease for a certain period will cancel all of the lease's terms and conditions. If a penalty is owed, it will be taken from the proceeds of the asset sale.
Creditors will gain from the liquidation procedure after a long struggle since they will be entitled to a default payment based on all creditors' credit proposals.

Most common reasons for a company's liquidation:
• A refusal to carry on with company operations
When a company is liquidated, the liquidator can sell the company's assets to pay off outstanding debts. Just after creditors have already been paid, any money left over is distributed to the company's shareholders.
When a company is struck off, its name is deleted from the company register and it is no longer allowed to trade, sell assets, make payments, or engage in any other business operations.
A company's name is struck off the company register when it is dissolved and liquidated. Other businesses may be able to use the name in the future.
