A Liquidation of a company is when the assets of the company is taken over or sold. Going through liquidation do not necessary means the company is over.

The involuntary process deals with the creditors or other officials to gain access to the company’s assets because of non payments or violation of a law.

Voluntary liquidation can occur when the company calls for liquidation with shareholders approval or if the creditors calls for one for in need of assistance or outside help.
