A statement from Kroll said: “Joint administrators are taking the necessary steps to ensure the security of all client files and funds and applicants are contacted to explain next steps.

“The companies which together employed 256 people and operated out of sites in Liverpool and Prescot ceased operations with immediate effect, resulting in 203 layoffs.

“The administrators are working with the remaining employees to end operations and provide support to the laid-off employees.

“The other companies of the group at large are not affected by the appointment of company directors.”
