CHAPTER 8 - Voluntary Liquidation
Section 720.

Universal Citation: CA Fin Code § 720 (2021)

Any licensee that voluntarily has ceased to do the business for which it is licensed shall immediately notify the commissioner and proceed to liquidate its affairs. Any share or deposit or other sum that has not been paid to the person entitled thereto within six months after the licensee ceased to conduct a business shall be paid into the State Treasury. The deposits with the State Treasury shall be deemed to have been received under the provisions of Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 1500) of Title 10 of Part 3 of the Code of Civil Procedure and shall be subject to claim or other disposition as provided in that chapter. If the commissioner has reason to conclude that the liquidation of the licensee is not being safely or expeditiously conducted, he or she may take possession of the business and property of the licensee in the same manner and with the same effect and subject to the same rights accorded the licensee as if he or she had taken possession pursuant to Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 600), and he or she may proceed to liquidate the licensee’s affairs in the same manner as provided in that article. When the licensee has been completely liquidated, its corporate existence shall be dissolved in the manner provided by law.
