I have just spoken to Chris Cox of insolvency practitioners Begbies Traynor, York, who is running Bruce Oliver’s liquidation.
It would appear that H&B/Cheese Cellar bought some cheese, office furniture and the Bruce Oliver customer list before it went bust. This money is being held by the liquidators and will be used to pay their fees.
It appears that Andy is not a director, only Sue is, but that they approached the liquidators to ask their advice about winding their business up.
It would also appear that unless a supplier has Retention of Title, you will not get anything.
If you would like to speak to Chris Cox of Begbies Traynor, he can be contacted on: 01904 479 801. There is a creditors meeting, at which Bruce and Sue will be present, to answer any questions at 2.15pm 28th March 2011 at the York Eco Business Centre, Amy Johnson Way, Clifton Moor, York YO30 4AG.
