WINDIM-UP FOEMS AND PRACTICE.



INTRODUCTORY CHAPTER.
Winding-up generally.

The Tvinding-up of companies is dealt with in this volume under
the following heads —

Section I. — Winding-up by the Court.

Section II. — Voluntary winding-up.

Section III. — Winding-up under the supervision of the Court.

Section IV. — Arrangements and Reconstruction.

This volume deals principally with the practice in winding-up
as altered by the Companies (Winding-up) Act, 1890, and the Rules
and Orders made pursuant to that Act, which now prevails, so far aa
the High Court of Justice is concerned, in Mr. Justice Vaughan
Williams' Court. A slightly different practice applies to the very few
cases which were retained by Chitty, North, Stirling and Keke-
wich, JJ., under the concluding words of rule 1 of April, 1892, and
a more widely different practice ajiplies in the case of companies
which are being wound up under any orders made before the 1st
January, 1891.

Statutes relating to Winding-up.

The principal Acts relating to winding-up are —

(1) The Companies Act, 1862 (25 & 26 Vict. c. 89), which came
into operation on the 2nd November, 1862.

Part IV. of this Act deals with the winding-up of comj)anies
"under this Act" {i.e., companies registered under Part I., or
made subject to the Act by Part VI., or registered under
Part VII.), and Part VIII. deals with the winding-up of un-
registered companies. The operation of the Act extends over
the United Kingdom, but as regards England and Wales it
is modified by the Companies (Winding-up) Act, 1890, which
alters the meaning of the expression "the Court" in Part IV.
and distributes the jurisdiction among the Courts referred to.

(2) The Joint Stock Companies Arrangement Act, 1870 (33 & 34
Vict. c. 104), which came into operation on the 10th August, 1870.

(3) The Companies Act, 1879 (42 & 43 Vict. c. 76), which came into
operation on the 15th August, 1879.

(4) The Preferential Payments in Bankruptcy Act, 1888 (51 & 52
Vict. c. 62), which came into operation on the 1st January, 1889. [_See
the Ameiulment Act, 1837, post, p. 863.]

P. B



INTRODUCTORY.

(5) The Companies (Winding-up) Act, 1890 (53 & 54 Vict. c. 63),
wMch came into operation on tlie 1st January, 1891.

This Act modified the Act of 1862 in various particulars, more
especially by altering the definition of " the Court " having
winding-up jurisdiction, by distributing the jurisdiction, by giving
the Board of Trade large powers in relation to compulsory winding-
up, and by establishing official receivers on the lines of the bank-
ruptcy system.

(6) The Companies (Winding-up) Act, 1893 (56 & 57 Vict. c. 58),
which makes an order to pay money under sect. 10 of the Act of 1890,
a final judgment within sect. 4 (1) of the Bankruptcy Act, 1883.

(7) The Industrial and Provident Societies Act, 1893 (56 & 57
Vict. C. 39), which vests in the Courts having jurisdiction under the
Act of 1890, the jvirisdiction to wind-up these societies formerly exclu-
sively possessed by the County Courts (sect. 58).

(8) The Building Societies Act, 1894 (57 & 58 Vict. c. 47),
which similarly alters the jurisdiction as to winding-up building
societies.

(9) The Finance Act, 1895 (58 Vict. c. 16), s. 16.— As to stamp duty
exemptions where the winding-up is by order of the Court, see
Chap. XLVIII.

(10) The Stannaries Court (Abolition) Act, 1896 (59 & 60 Vict.
c. 45), which abolishes the Court of the Yice-Warden of the Stannaries
and transfers its jurisdiction to the County Court.

(11) The Preferential Payments in Bankruptcy Amendment Act,
1897 (60 & 61 Vict. c. 19).

Rules and Orders relating to Winding-up.

The Act of 1862 (sect. 170) gave power to the Lord Chancellor to
make rules " concerning the mode of proceeding to be had for winding-
up a company;" but that section was repealed by the Statute Law
Revision Act, 1881, and the power to make rules was by sect. 19 of
the Judicature Act, 1881, vested in a Rule Committee. The Act of
1890 (sect. 26) enables the Lord Chancellor, with the concurrence of
the President of the Board of Trade, to make rules "for carrying
into effect the objects of this Act." See also rule 3 of 1890, giving
power to the Board of Trade to alter forms, &c., and the Rules Publi-
cation Act, 1893 (56 & 57 Yict. c. 66).

Rule 175 of 1890 gives power to the Board of Trade to make rules
"of an administrative and not of a judicial character."

Tlio rules made under the Acts of 1862 and 1890, as regards
Eugland and Wales, are as follows: —

(1) The Rules of 11th November, 1862, made under the Com-
panies Act, 1862.

Those rules stiU apply to winding-up proceedings in the High



INTRODUCTORY.

Court, wliore the winding-up order was made before Ist January,
1891.

They also apply to some extent to windings-up under super-
vision and voluntary windings-up. See rr. 1 and 17 of April,
1892.

(2) The Rules of 29th Novemher, 1890, made by the Lord Chan-
cellor with the concurrence of the President of the Board of Trade
under sect. 2G of the Companies Winding-up Act, 1890.

These rules apply to all liquidations under compulsory winding-
up orders made after 31st December, 1890.

They also have some limited reference to voluntary winding-up,
and winding-up under supervision. See rr. 1 and 17 of April, 1892.

(3) Order of 29th November, 1890.— The Lord Chancellor made an
order of this date vesting the jurisdiction of the High Court in certain
