FCA confirms Independently East Ltd is in compulsory liquidation
On 11 September 2023, Independently East Ltd (IEL) entered compulsory liquidation following an application made by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The Official Receiver has been appointed as liquidator.
IEL is a regulated firm which was authorised to provide financial advice.
Early in 2023, the FCA took action against IEL which meant that their accounts were frozen and their permissions to carry out regulatory activities were cancelled.
The Official Receiver has been appointed to wind up IEL for the benefit of its creditors and will be writing to all known creditors shortly to explain what this means and how to make a claim.
If you believe you have a claim against IEL then please contact the Official Receiver using the following contact details below:
