Section 244. Settlement of list of contributories and application of assets. (COMPANIES ACT 1965 (REVISED - 1973) - ACT 125) (1) As soon as may be after making a winding up order the Court shall settle a list of contributories and may rectify the register of members in all cases where rectification is required in pursuance of this Part and shall cause the assets of the company to be collected and applied in discharge of its liabilities.

(2) Notwithstanding subsection (1) where it appears to the Court that it will not be necessary to make calls on or adjust the rights of contributories, the Court may dispense with the settlement of a list of contributories.

(3) In settling the list of contributories the Court shall distinguish between persons who are contributories in their own right and persons who are contributories as being representatives of or liable for the debts of others.

(4) The list of contributories when settled shall be prima facie evidence of the liabilities of the persons named therein as contributories.
