Receivership

When a company goes into receivership, an administrative receiver is appointed to run the company. An administrative receivership is appointed by a secured creditor who has a floating charge:

  • over the whole; or
  • substantially the whole of a company’s assets.

When a charge holder puts a company into receivership, the company does not have to be insolvent. The administrative receiver’s role is to run the company, with a view to:

  • selling the company as a going concern; or
  • to sell its assets,

The profits from the receivership are then used to repay the secured creditor. Under the Enterprise Act 2002, the procedure was effectively abolished, but any creditor holding a floating charge created before 15 September 2003 can still appoint an administrative receiver to enforce its security.
