Cartwright and another v Registrar of Companies: [2012] EWCA Civ 1159;   [2012] WLR (D)  255

“The date on which the administration of a company was converted into a creditors’ voluntary liquidation was the date on which the registrar of companies registered the conversion notice on the company’s file at Companies House, not the date the registrar received the notice sent by the administrators, on the true construction of paragraph 83 of Schedule B1 to the Insolvency Act 1986 as inserted. The administrators’ term of office was in general automatically extended if a conversion notice under paragraph 83 was duly filed.”
