The liquidation of a company is a procedure that brings to an end the functioning of a corporation as a business.
At times, liquidation enforces the collection of the outstanding debts of the corporation to its creditors. This can be accomplished, among other methods, by suing the director of the company as part of the liquidation proceedings. Articles 373-374 of the Company Act are applicable here. While this is indeed one of the strategies that may result in the collection of the debt, we should keep in mind that holding the company director personally liable is indeed an exceptional measure, and one the Court does not approve of easily.
