The role of the Official Receiver, Special Managers and Liquidators

The Official Receiver

The Official Receiver acts as an Officer of the Court in insolvency matters and is also an employee of the Insolvency Service, an executive agency of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.  Where the Official Receiver acts as liquidator, the agency is responsible for overseeing the insolvency process, investigating the cause of company failure and making redundancy and other related payments to employees when their employer is unable to do so.

For Carillion, the Official Receiver’s priority was to ensure the continuity of public services while securing the best outcome for creditors.  When the companies entered liquidation, employees, agents and subcontractors were asked to continue to work as normal whilst the businesses could be stabilised, the companies’ affairs could be reviewed and options considered for the transition of contracts to third parties in conjunction with the orderly wind-down of the businesses.

The Official Receiver can be contacted at Carillion.Liquidator@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk

The Special Managers

The Special Managers were appointed by the High Court to help manage the affairs, business and property of those companies, in accordance with the powers and duties contained in the order appointing them.  The Special Managers act as agents of the Carillion companies, without personal liability.  All are licensed in the United Kingdom to act as insolvency practitioners by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

See the above section ‘Information for Creditors’ for contact details for the Special Managers.  Also see further information on the list of appointments.

The Liquidators

Certain companies in the Carillion group were outside the geographical jurisdiction of the Official Receiver, therefore where those companies entered into liquidation, it was necessary for an insolvency practitioner other than the Official Receiver to be appointed.  This list of companies in liquidation provides details of the liquidators.  The liquidators act without personal liability.

The above contact details for the Special Managers can also be used where liquidators from PwC in the UK have also been appointed.  Also see further information on the list of appointments.

Privacy Statement

The Special Managers and Joint Liquidators may act as controllers of personal data, as defined by the UK data protection law, depending upon the specific processing activities undertaken. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP may act as a processor on the instructions of the Special Managers or Joint Liquidators.  Personal data will be kept secure and processed only for matters relating to the Special Managers or Joint Liquidators appointment.  Further details are available in the privacy statement on the PwC.co.uk website or by contacting the Special Managers or Joint Liquidators.

Other information

The Joint Liquidators are bound by the Insolvency Code of Ethics which can be found at:
