Auckland insolvency files   (21460)
unknown - unknown  range held: 1886 - 1954


Applications for insolvency, i.e. bankruptcy in the case of individuals and liquidation in the case of an incorporation, were administered by the Official Assignee and were granted by Supreme Court order. The files in series 21460 were annotated with the court generated bankruptcy or miscellaneous number. Each insolvency had a 'main' file, with other files relating to different aspects of the insolvency as required e.g. 'proof of debt', 'statement of affairs', 'disposal of assets', 'accounts', and 'legal'. This series ended in 1954 when the Official Assignee implemented a single running number system for the classification of its bankruptcy and insolvency files.
