(2) Where the liquidator in a winding up by the court vacates office prior to the holding of the final general meeting of creditors under Article 124, he shall within 14 days of vacating office send to the Department an account of his receipts and payments as liquidator for any period not covered by an account previously so sent by him or if no such account has been sent, an account of his receipts and payments in respect of the whole period of his office.

(3) In the case of a winding up by the court, where:

(a)a final general meeting of creditors has been held pursuant to Article 124, or

(b)a final general meeting is deemed to have been held by virtue of Rule 4.132(5),
