Liquidating a company will not prevent you from starting a new company or business. 

The only restriction placed upon you will be the use of a similar company name or trading name. Under Section 216 and Section 217 of the Insolvency Act 1986, it is illegal for any person who was a director of a company at any point prior to the 12 months of liquidation to be involved in another company with the same or similar name for a period of five years.

There are exceptions to this restriction and you should discuss this with the Insolvency Practitioner should you wish to continue trading using a similar name or branding, and they will advise you further.
