What Happens During Company Liquidation in UAE?

Liquidation is the process by which a company or a part of the company, sole establishment, Free Zone Company, or institution closes its business/operations. During liquidation, assets and property of the corporation or business is distributed to their creditors, shareholders, and owners of the United Arab Emirates-registered Company. Liquidation is also known as winding-up or dissolution.

Liquidation happens when a corporation doesn’t have liquid funds to hold day to day transactions, creditors aren’t being paid because of the lack of money, or the company commits a serious offense of some type. Company liquidation in Dubai sometimes can be compulsory and noted as a creditor’s liquidation or voluntary.

You need to appoint a liquidator if your company is a: General partnership, a Limited Liability Company, Simple Limited Partnership, a Public Joint Stock Company, or a Private Joint Stock Company.
