There’s nothing special about ‘pre-liquidation’ accounts, except that it would probably be inappropriate to draw them up on a going concern basis (particularly if it’s an insolvent liquidation - in which case why are accounts being drawn up at all?)

You mean the spammer Paul Brindley FCA who got a bit miffed being called a spammer and had the thread about Midlands Business Recovery spamming people pulled?

Despite publicly admitting he used a marketing system to send out blanket emails to random accountants that had not opted in to receive them? AKA spam?

That Paul Brindley from Midlands Business Recovery?

Just checking for a friend.

Not much information
I ASSUME that holding company has appointed you to try and make things look a bit less damaging.
The accounts are ordinary accounts but as Wilson says, going concern is inappropriate.
I would suggest the critical issue is a balance sheet that is accurate, and a serious review of intergroup transactions

Is this an MVL or a CVL?

In a solvent Liquidation accounts should be prepared to the day before the resolution is passed. The costs would be paid as an expense of the process as would the submission of the final CT return.

For a CVL don't bother. Unless there is a TLR claim or other assets that a Liquidator can realise based on the accounts and your fees are paid as a cost of the realisation then you are wasting your time.
