Quick question as about 20 minutes of Googling (and other search engining) hasn't revealed the answer.

If a company goes into administration or liquidation, how soon must they inform companies house and how long then before it shows on the CH system?

A company I have been a customer of, and more critically I know people left in limbo has 'closed down' and apparently sold all the assets off* (Friday or over last weekend) yet is still showing as trading normally on the CH company search.

*Effectively every asset including the trading name, website and properties and some 'assets' that weren't even theirs such as customer property in for service. Many customers have had money taken by the original company and no goods sent (even though the Co. T&C's stated payment would only be taken on dispatch).

As about 17% of cases reported to Action Fraud even get passed on for investigation I’d not hold your breath.

I think I know what you mean, but surely there is some 'investigation' to decide whether it becomes a 'formal' investigation or not?

Two ways of looking at it I suppose, 83% of reported events aren't fraud, or are outside the remit of AF or outside jurisdiction (overseas scams from Nigeria or now more prominently India), or 83% just 'look to hard to bother', or a combination of both.

As a simile, I just made a report to advertising standards about an aftermarket devices fuel economy benefit claims, they replied with a template letter telling me how car manufacturers fuel economy claims are made, clearly the responder hadn't read/understood my complaint, many complainants may have just left it at that, I politely corrected her and its been reopened.

Who knows. Some (myself included) may not consider anything done by AF to be an investigation in any case.

As I understand it it's more of a sifting exercise, so that only worthwhile stuff (where there are actionable lines of enquiry and the number of victims / scale of losses warrants putting public resources into an investigation) is refereed to the police.
