Rules may vary slightly for Scottish comapnies but in the context of a UK company, “Give notice of order deferring the date of dissolution” refers to the process of notifying relevant parties about a court order that delays or postpones the scheduled dissolution of a company.

When a company is inactive or no longer wishes to continue its operations, it may choose to be voluntarily dissolved and removed from the Companies Register. The dissolution process typically involves filing the necessary documents with Companies House and waiting for a specified period, during which interested parties can object to the dissolution.

However, there may be instances where the court decides to defer or postpone the scheduled dissolution for various reasons. This could occur if there are ongoing legal disputes, unresolved claims, or other matters that require further consideration before the dissolution can proceed.

When the court issues an order deferring the date of dissolution, the company is required to give notice of this order. The purpose of this notice is to inform interested parties, such as creditors, shareholders, and other stakeholders, that the dissolution process has been temporarily put on hold.

The notice will typically include information about the court order, the new date of dissolution (if specified), and any instructions or actions required from the concerned parties. It serves as a formal notification that the dissolution process has been delayed and that the company remains in existence for the time being.

It is important for creditors, shareholders, and other interested parties to carefully review the notice of the order deferring the date of dissolution to understand the implications for their rights and obligations. They may need to take appropriate actions or seek legal advice depending on the circumstances and the reasons for the deferral.

These notices are filed with Companies House against the registered company number. All UK company liquidation notices and updates are tracked centrally by Doorda.
