What do insolvency searches at The Gazette reveal?

What is The Gazette?

The Gazette provides a permanent official public record of important statutory and non-statutory notices that can be used to support legal and other processes. All notices are accessible on one website—whether they originated in the London, Edinburgh or Belfast edition

Insolvency legislation in some instances requires certain notices to be filed at Companies House and advertised in The Gazette. Therefore, it may be prudent to undertake searches both at Companies House and at The Gazette. For further information on insolvency searches at Companies House, see our Practice Note: What do insolvency searches at Companies House reveal?

When are notices published in The Gazette?

A notice in The Gazette will be published on The Gazette website and in the specific edition (ie London, Edinburgh or Belfast) you select. The London, Edinburgh and Belfast Gazettes have different timings of when notices are published. These are as follows:

  1. The London Gazette publishes each working day. Notices should be received before 11.30 am at least two working days ahead of publication

  2. The Edinburgh Gazette publishes each Monday and Wednesday generally excluding bank holidays. Notices should be received before 9.30 am the working day ahead of publication

  3. The Belfast Gazette publishes each Monday generally excluding bank holidays. Notices should be received before 3.00 pm the working day ahead of publication
