Decobake, the cake-making equipment business that was put into provisional liquidation in high-profile circumstances on foot of an application by Dublin City Council, is to be partially reopened.

The company is to start accepting trade orders tomorrow and web orders on Tuesday.

Provisional liquidator Declan de Lacy, of PKF O'Connor Leddy & Holmes, hopes to be able to resume trading at the company's retail locations "in the near future".

The details are contained in a notice posted at the company's warehouse in Clane, Co Kildare in recent days.

The company was put into provisional liquidation by the High Court last month on foot of an unpaid rates bill of €102,000.

Counsel for the council told the High Court that last December agents of the city sheriff, attempting to execute a warrant, had been confronted by aggressive and physically intimidating people at Decobake's premises on Dublin's quays. The court heard that the company had refused to constructively engage with the council.

Dublin City Council chief executive Owen Keegan said the council had a duty to compliant ratepayers to pursue businesses that refuse to pay their rates, up to and including liquidation.
