This is clearly a very worrying time for those who were reliant on City Link for work, including its subcontractors.

Any subcontractor with invoices unpaid by City Link will rank as an unsecured creditor and should send details of their claim to the administrator. The administrator has also been providing information to creditors to advise them on what they need to do to notify their claims to him.

Employees employed directly by City Link and those sub-contracted to them are eligible for consideration of Rapid Response Service support.
