Who can apply
Sole traders, all partners and companies (including their directors) must be clear of legal restrictions on their work or business. Legal restrictions include things like bankruptcy, financial receivership, a suspended or disqualified trade licence.
You or your company can't apply if you were a director of any company that was wound up to pay creditors in the last five years - including if you were a director six months before winding up started.
