Pre Liquidation Planning - Professional Review Pre Liquidation - Insolvency planning

Planning ahead of a liquidation - Insolvency planning & review

 

As a Director you should not be rushed into placing your limited company into liquidation without any pre liquidation planning or review having taken place. Pre liquidation planning is essential as you need to understand and agree the likely or planned outcome. This is where a professional review pre liquidation creates value

 

Before any action is taken to place a your company into Creditors Voluntary Liquidation a short professional review of your company's financial position should take place.

 

The review is a basic and simple 'fact find' which does not take much time at all and which might involve:

  • The completion of an enquiry pack.
  • A review of the company's historical accounts.
  • A review of the charges registered over the company assets.
  • Possibly the review of forecasts prepared on  "what if" bases.
  • Review of the company's customers and market.
  • Review of the company's key processes
  •  Review of the directors intended ultimate retirement strategy.

 

The review might, however, give rise to an entirely different recommendations than a Creditors Voluntary LIquidation ("CVL") for your company.

 

If we assume that the pre liquidation planning review letter of advice recommends a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation and the setting up of a phoenix re-start company then that letter might go on to include headings on:

  • Turnaround finance
  • Re-use of company name
  • Timing of the Creditors Voluntary Liquidation

 

Pre liquidation planning through a short no charge professional review pre liquidation is essential if you want the best outcome for you, your business and your company's creditors.
