If the Directors think that they cannot have a going concern assumption of their company then they should plan to wind up the company. For winding up, liquidator needs to be appointed who will ensure that all the dues and obligations are met before the company gets liquidated. Liquidator can only be appointed only after passing a special resolution and this resolution needs to be passed only at the general meeting by the members of the company.
After all the dues are paid to company’s creditors then the balance amount will be paid to the members of the company. If any property or asset is not yet sold then members have the option to take over such assets of the company. But if the company failed to pay the dues to its creditors then members are liable to pay the due amount to its creditors. Members cannot escape from such liability. It is compulsory for members t o pay the due amount.
