Companies Act 2006

Expenses of winding up

1699.The House of Lords decided in Buchler and another v Talbot and others, in re Leyland Daf [2004] UKHL 9 that property subject to a floating charge is not available to fund the general expenses of winding up. This provision is intended to reverse that decision.

Section 1282: Payment of expenses of winding up (England and Wales)

1700.Subsection (1) inserts a new section 176ZA in the Insolvency Act 1986 under which property subject to a floating charge may, where necessary, be used to fund the general expenses of winding up in priority to the floating charge holder and to any preferential creditors entitled to be paid out of that property. There is power to make provision by rules requiring the authorisation or approval of the floating charge holder, or any preferential creditors, or the court, in certain circumstances.

1701.Subsection (2) makes a corresponding amendment of the Insolvency (Northern Ireland) Order 1989 (S.I. 1989/2405 (N.I.19)).
