Winding up orders are an indicator a company is in trouble. It's when another organisation - usually a creditor - seeks to kill the company. Winding-up orders are not the death of a company but they can be. If a company repeatedly has winding-up orders against it, it's a strong indicator that the company is either poorly run or has cash-flow problems.
