We provide you, free of any charge, with the insolvency options, advice, help and support to identify what option might be the most appropriate in the light of your company's particular circumstances. We discuss the pros and cons of each option with you. Our licensed insolvency practitioners will provide you with a written plan of action as to how to rescue the underlying business of your company. As an example your Company's business might be rescued by appointing an insolvency practitioner to implement one of the following company insolvency services:
Each of the above insolvency options and the rescue terminology used is explained in detail later on this website. You will also find case studies on each type of insolvency vehicle.
While by law you have a duty to consider taking action when your company is insolvent it may not occur to you that corporate recovery processes usually bring their own material benefits. For example huge financial benefits can arise from a planned company restructure via a liquidation, an administration or a company voluntary arrangement (CVA).
Most rescue processes involve the shedding of a large amount of debt. That results in your new company not carrying more debt than it has assets. UK law only allows licensed practitioners to act on your behalf to rescue your company. The following are some of the benefits that can arise from company rescue or corporate recovery processes.
- A company restructure which eliminates or part eliminates the existing debt burden.of VAT, PAYE, Corporation Tax and trade creditors or
- Closing unprofitable units or
- Leaving behind burdensome property leases or
- Leaving behind costly hire purchase, lease purchase, leasing, rental or contract hire agreements
- Eliminating unprofitable contracts or
- Reducing the staff headcount
- A re-start company (if required) with or without a prepack (pre pack) or
- In many cases you learn how to avoid your personal guarantees being called in following any company liquidation. This can be a very valuable benefit achieved, amazingly, at a much lesser net cost than if the personal guarantee had been called in.
Working together with you our insolvency practitioners plan to maximise returns to the existing company creditors and achieve the above benefits for you at the same time. Our small team work with you and the company creditors on a "value" basis when agreeing the basis of our cost and fee charges. We aim to provide identifiable, measurable financial benefits.
Listed below are links to more detailed information on different insolvency and recovery services that can be underaken on your behalf through our practice by one of our insolvency practitioners:
To achieve a rescue plan for your company licensed insolvency practitioners rely on the relevant UK law found in The Insolvency Act 1986, The Insolvency Rules 1986 and in the case law arising from that legislation. That body of insolvency law provides licensed insolvency practitioners like us with a toolbox of options to help your company to reorganise its financial affairs. The reorganisation usually involves eliminating existing debt through a debt restructuring and that could be achieved by either:
- or assisting your company from not being wound up by the Court [Sections 73 -83 and 117 - 162].
From the above you can see that corporate (company) & business insolvency law provides many rescue options for your business rather than just putting your company into liquidation.
