    yes but the point is you will be informed. It's true that you would join the queue with any outstanding debt, but if you had time to run on the contract going forward you can negotiate with them. If you agreed they would be obliged to pay you as it is illegal for them to run up any further debt.
    I'm alright Jack

    I'm not a lawyer so usual disclaimers apply. If I were you I would speak to one and explore your options (e.g. contracting directly from the date the company was dissolved?)

    Would give you a clearer view of your options

    This happened to me for an insurance client. I approached them asking to contract direct as the agency was no longer a legal entity. Their lawyers reviewed it and I was working direct with the end client a few days later. Anything else I'm afraid you have to write off and forget about

    OP,
    I'd not jump to conclusions but check your contract and see precisely which entity your company signed a contract with.

    There are references to more than one recruitment organisation at Companies House with the name you specified - the dissolved one being a different office address.

    An active .com website doesn't actually make it clear the precise company name but it does match registered office details for an active entity.

    This entity also appears to have engaged in invoice factoring - commonplace among agencies - therefore you should have little difficulty in getting your invoice paid.

    As for another similar entity being dissolved, I wouldnt be too hasty in future to post woe is me without re-checking details.

    Now, of course, if your contract IS with the dissolved name then you have a problem, best of luck.
