Step 4. From the top menu, press the Applications button.

Step 5. In the drop-down menu, click on the Dashboard button.

Step 6. In front of you you will see a list of companies associated with your personal code. Select your company by clicking on its name.

Step 7. Click on the button Start an entry application regarding liquidation.

Step 8. Confirm the action by pressing the YES button.

Step 9. From the menu on the left, click on Persons.

Step 10. Add a liquidator by clicking on the Add liquidator button.
