Bankruptcy

In bankruptcy proceedings, the debts of an indebted and insolvent company are determined, its assets are sold, the funds are distributed among the creditors and the company is closed down. The creditors exercise the supreme decision-making power in the bankruptcy estate. A bankruptcy may also lapse if there are not enough funds in the bankruptcy estate. It can, however, continue under public receivership if additional investigations on your company are considered necessary.
