Trading Name: Lilibets

Registered office: 417 Lord Street, Southport, Merseyside, PR9 0AG

Principal trading address: 417 Lord Street, Southport, Merseyside, PR9 0AG

Date of liquidation: 31 December 2017

Elizabeth Connard was a Director of Lilibets of Paris Ltd in the twelve months before the company went into liquidation.

It is my intention to be concerned or to take part in the promotion, formation or management of Lilibets in connection with, or for the purposes of, carrying out the whole or substantially the whole of the business of Lilibets of Paris Ltd.

S216 of the Insolvency Act 1986 would not permit me to do this unless I had the leave of the court or I was entitled to one of the exceptions under R22.4 of the Insolvency Rules 2016. Breach of the terms of S216 IA1986 is a criminal offence.

“Section 216(3) of the Insolvency Act 1986 lists the activities that a undertake unless the court gives permission or there is an exception in the Insolvency Rules made under the Insolvency Act 1986. (This includes the exceptions in Part 22 of the Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016.) These activities are -

(a) acting as a director of another company that is known by a name which is either the same as a name used by the company in insolvent liquidation in the 12 months before it entered liquidation or is so similar as to suggest an association with that company;

(b) directly or indirectly being concerned or taking part in the promotion, formation or management of any such company; or

(c) directly or indirectly being concerned in the carrying on of a business otherwise than through a company under a name of the kind mentioned in (a) above.

This notice is given under rule 22.4 of the Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016 where the business of a company which is in, or may go into, insolvent liquidation is, or is to be, carried on

Otherwise than by the company in liquidation with the involvement of a director of that company and under the same or a similar name to that of that company. The purpose of giving this notice is to permit the director to act in these circumstances where the company enters (or has entered) insolvent liquidation without the director committing a criminal offence and in the case of the carrying on of the business through another company, being personally liable for that company’s debts. Notice may be given where the person giving the notice is already the director of a company which proposes to adopt a prohibited name.”
