It notes several computers for its "Vietnam team" have already been sold.

The App Team does not owe money to its handful of employees.

Registered in 2012, the company rode the wave of mobile applications, promising customers they would help transform their ideas "into functional and scalable technology solutions".

Its customers included Cover More travel insurance and Track My Fish.

In his first report on the company Mr Dullaway noted a $67,420 deficiency in money owed to creditors compared to its assets and cash in the bank.

"There is no likelihood of a dividend being paid to the company's creditors, however, I will notify creditors in the event that the position changes as a result of my further investigations," he wrote.

In October dozens of businesses were placed into liquidation.
