Establishing Establishment Re Olympic Airlines SA [2015] UKSC 27


29th April 2015

The Supreme Court has determined that the mere internal administration of a winding-up, including payments for staff and utilities, is not “economic activity” within article 2(h) of the Insolvency Regulation 1346/2000.  Instead what is required for an “establishment” to open secondary or territorial proceedings is market activity of the debtor with third parties.
