It is well established that the Courts in the Commonwealth Caribbean may wind-up a foreign corporation. The term "foreign corporation" refers to a corporation that is not incorporated in the country in which the court is exercising its winding-up jurisdiction. This article sets out the basic principles drawn from decided cases which should guide the court in the exercise of its ancillary windingup jurisdiction. Due to the absence of any reported cases from the West Indian Law Reports, cases from England were selected because insolvency laws in the Commonwealth Caribbean generally are modeled after the laws of England and the courts there draw on English sources.
