Effect of voluntary winding up, Business Law and Ethics

Effect of Voluntary Winding Up:

The main difference in legal consequences between a compulsory and voluntary winding up are:

(a) A voluntary winding up commences on the day when the resolution to wind up is passed.  It is not retrospective;

(b) The Official Receiver does not become provisional liquidator.  The members or creditors select and appoint the liquidator and he is not an officer of the court;

(c) There is no automatic stay of legal proceedings against the company nor are previous dispositions or seizure of its assets void.  But the liquidator in a voluntary winding up has a general right to apply to the court to make any order which the court can make in a compulsory liquidation.  He would do so to prevent any creditor obtaining an unfair advantage over other creditors;

(d) The liquidator replaces the directors in the management of the company (unless he decides to retain them).  The employees are not automatically dismissed by commencement of voluntary liquidation.  But insolvent liquidation may amount to repudiation of their contracts of employment (and provisions of the statutory employment protection code apply).
