CURO Transatlantic Limited – in Administration

CURO Transatlantic Limited (in Administration) - "CTL"
Court number 1418 of 2019
Joint Administrators - Howard Smith and Ed Boyle

Howard Smith and Ed Boyle were appointed as Joint Administrators of CURO Transatlantic Limited on 25 February 2019. CTL was a provider of short-term, high-cost consumer finance and traded exclusively in the UK under two brands: WageDayAdvance and Juo Loans.

Immediately following their appointment, the Joint Administrators concluded a sale of the business and the majority of the assets of CTL to Shelby Finance Limited ("Shelby"). As part of this sale, a proportion of CTL's outstanding loan book was purchased by Shelby.

A sale of CTL's remaining customer loan book has also now been concluded with Lantern Debt Recovery Services Limited ("Lantern").

The Joint Administrators have emailed customers whose loans have been sold, and customers will have also been contacted separately by Shelby or Lantern (as relevant) who are administering these loans from now on.

A deadline for submission of claims in the Administration against CTL has been set as follows:

Claims Submission Deadline: 23:59 hours on 31 August 2019

If you do not submit a claim before this deadline, your claim is unlikely to be considered by the Joint Administrators and you will be unable to receive a payment in the Administration.
