25 Liquidation of a board by court


A board may be put into liquidation by the appointment by the court as liquidator of a named person or an Official Assignee for a named district if the court is satisfied that it is just and equitable that the board should be put into liquidation.


Any application to the court to put a board into liquidation may be presented by—


the Attorney-General; or


the board; or


a member; or


a creditor; or


the Registrar; or


any other person who, in the opinion of the court, should make the application.


All costs incurred by the Attorney-General or the Registrar in making the application shall, unless the court otherwise orders, be a first charge on the assets of the board.


Subject to this Act and to any regulations made under this Act, Parts 16 and 17 of the Companies Act 1993 shall apply, with such modifications as may be necessary,—


to the application for the appointment of a liquidator as if the application was an application under section 241(2)(c) of that Act; and


to the liquidation as if the liquidator had been appointed under section 241(2)(c) of that Act.

Section 25: replaced, on 1 July 1994, by section 2 of the Charitable Trusts Amendment Act 1993 (1993 No 112).
