Companies and Directors

Running your own business is hard work. When problems start to mount up and cash becomes a problem it gets even harder.

Insolvency practitioners spend a lot of time dealing with insolvent businesses, but we provide support to struggling businesses.

Seeking the advice of an insolvency practitioner is the right thing to do when things get tough. The earlier advice is sought, the more options there are and the more likely that you can get your business back to stability.

  • We will always have a no-obligation chat or meeting to help you assess the options and we will keep you right on what your responsibilities and duties are.
  • We can help you work out what the options are, what the pros and cons of each option are and likely outcomes.
  • We can support you in preparing for conversations with creditors and potential providers of new funding.
  • We can assess whether business recovery processes such as pre-pack administration and Company Voluntary Arrangements are solutions that will work in your circumstances.
  • Should insolvency be the solution, we can take over the affairs of your business and wind up matters for you.

Individuals, Sole Traders & Partnerships

If you are struggling for cash, meeting your monthly obligations can be challenging and feels like a never-ending circle. It is stressful never knowing who is going to be at the door or on the phone looking for money. But there are solutions to personal debt problems.

We deal with Trust Deeds and Sequestrations. Get in touch and we can talk you through the options and which one is best suited to your own circumstances. We will help you to take the first step towards finding a solution and helping you move forward.

Professional Services

You may be an expert in your own field or a general practitioner but we are on hand to provide specialist insolvency and recovery advice to you and your clients.  If you have a client that is facing financial difficulties you should recommend that they speak to a business recovery professional. The earlier they speak to us, the more likely we can save the business and keep you with a client that will continue to pay you fees for years to come.

We can also assist you/your clients with debt recovery and enforcement action.

Some of the ways we have provided support to other professionals and their clients:

• Helping businesses secure finance
• Putting in place Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVAs)
• Negotiating informal arrangements with creditors
• MVLs
• Support in negotiations with HMRC on Time-To-Pay arrangements
• Providing advice to a business wanting to buy assets from an administrator
• Our tax colleagues can provide input around the most tax-efficient way to exit a business
• Advice around solvent winding up vs dissolution

“Shona and her team provided robust advice around the steps required prior to the liquidation so that matters could be dealt with in an efficient manner as possible. The advice was also provided around directors duties and the different legal positions of shareholders, creditors and directors. The whole liquidation process was smooth and the liquidation itself concluded within 7 months.”

Shareholder and creditor, Moy Burn Company Limited

From my perspective the whole process was simple and I am grateful to you all for making it that way.
I was pleased that the cost was exactly as stated at the outset and the liquidation was completed in just over 6 months.”
