This Practice Note covers the practicalities of constituting the liquidation committee and the creditors’ decision process in liquidation generally. In practice the former type of committee is of great significance in liquidations which are large and complicated (IA 1986, ss 141(1) – 141(4)).

Physical meetings can only be held if requested by the relevant majority of creditors under IA 1986, s 246ZE but can be requested by the creditors prior to delivery of the notice of deemed consent or qualifying decision procedure.
