Securities Guidance

The security: repaying a security deposit: dissolved companies

In law assets of a dissolved company vest in the Crown (bona vacantia). In Scotland, the Crown is the Queen’s and Lord Treasurer’s Remembrancer.

Where money due to a defunct company is held, the Third Party Repayments Team will make the repayment to the Lord Remembrancer’s Office on the local office’s instructions.
