An Official Receiver is a civil servant who works for the Department of Trade and Industry and is appointed by the Court to act as:
– a liquidator when a company is being wound up;
– a trustee when an individual is made bankrupt.
The duties of an official receiver will include examining the company/bankrupt’s property which is available to pay the debts and distributing the money amongst the creditor.
