What is Insolvency?

Insolvency happens all the time and for lots of reasons, but, at its simplest, it means that a business (or individual) cannot pay its debts when they fall due or does not have sufficient assets to cover its debts.

Insolvency is often painful and distressing for the directors (and employees) involved, not least when it comes to acknowledging there is a problem and accepting that something needs to be done. In our experience, the quicker insolvency practitioners are contacted and instructed the better, as there are normally more options available.

What our insolvency practitioners do

When there is absolutely no alternative, then Liquidation is the most commonly used insolvency procedure. Here, a firm of Insolvency Practitioners is usually appointed to be the Liquidator with the aim being to close the insolvent company down whilst extracting the greatest possible value for the company’s creditors.

However, if at all possible, our objective is to try to rescue and preserve a company so that it can continue to trade in some shape or form. This is where insolvency procedures such as Company Administrations and Company Voluntary Arrangements are used to create time for businesses to restructure and recover. Data from R3 our Industry body suggests that in over 40% of cases businesses survive when an insolvency practitioner is appointed.

So, if you believe your business is facing insolvency it is already insolvent, contact our team of insolvency practitioners in London for a FREE initial consultation. We can help.
