As far as winding up a company goes, it comprises of three kinds. The first kind involves the court that is responsible for winding up the court – this is called compulsory winding up. In the second type of winding up, the court is only supervising the entire process instead of directly getting involved in it. The third type is voluntary winding up on behalf of the company. This type has two sub-categories, the first one involving the winding up on the behalf of members of the company while the second type involves the winding up by creditors on a voluntary basis.

Regarding the circumstances necessary for a company to be winding up, they include the following:

A company has resolved by special resolution to be wound up by the court.

In case of a public company, if a default is paid in delivering the statutory report to the registrar or if the default is made in the holding of any two consecutive Annual General Meetings.

In case of a private company, if default is made in holding the statutory meeting. Also if a company does not commence within a year after its incorporation, winding up becomes compulsory.
