Financial challenges are faced by most company directors and business owners at some point. Often these difficulties are short term. If you’re struggling to keep up with your business debts on a monthly basis, it might be that you’re technically insolvent. This is when seeking expert professional help for business rescue can help.

Even if the situation seems beyond hope, our practitioners are here to show you how using a business rescue solution could recover your business.

Using Company Voluntary Arrangement for business rescue

A Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) is a formal, legal agreement between you and your creditors that allows you to repay your debts in manageable instalments, over a set period of time. It also forms a barrier between you and your creditors – they can’t take any legal action against you while you’re still meeting the terms of your CVA.

As part of this business rescue process, we’ll work with you to discover what’s causing your financial difficulties and help you fix the issue, so that you can get back into a profitable position. Once we’ve established a realistic business plan and worked out how much you can afford to pay back, we’ll take the pressure off you by handling the negotiations with your creditors.

Company administration

‘Going into administration’ is a term you may have heard in the media, when a big company is in financial difficulties. In reality, it’s a business rescue solution that works for every company, whatever the size.

As with a CVA, a company administration is a legal tool that creates a barrier between you and your creditors. It gives you valuable breathing space to work out your business issues and create a plan to solve them. The difference is that once you’re in administration, the company will be controlled by a licensed insolvency practitioner, who will be the expert that oversees the administration process.

The ultimate goal of a company administration is for the administrator to rescue the business. They do this by working out a way to release funds from the company to pay all or some of its debts, so that its business can continue.

You can keep your company name, directors and shareholders, and trade as usual – free of the debt that might have been holding you back before.

It’s vital that you work with an expert, reputable licensed insolvency practitioner when exploring this option.
