'Business bankruptcy' or 'Bankruptcy for business' are terms often used for company liquidation, and although business bankruptcy is not an official insolvency procedure, it is generally used to refer to the company liquidation process.

Liquidation can be voluntary or forced. It is an insolvency procedure that will close your business, deal with the outstanding financial liabilities, administrate the sale and return of any company assets and notify Companies House that the liquidation has taken place and that therefore the company will no longer continue to trade.
