The term insolvency describes a financial state when a business can no longer meet its liabilities. This might mean you cannot pay your bills due to financial difficulties, or that you have more debt than assets. Critically, it means your business is in danger of having to cease trading.

Insolvency can also have serious implications for your business including, but not limited to, employment, HR, and tax. If you’re facing insolvency, it’s vital to get trusted legal advice as soon as possible. For a no obligation consultation, feel free to contact a member of our team.

Insolvent creditors could take action to recover their debt by issuing an official request for payment or petition for the winding up of your company if you cannot pay. Creditors can also try and put your company into administration. To prevent this, you can apply to the court to stop the winding up order or to follow other insolvency processes.

To avoid closing down, there are a range of options open to you. You can contact all creditors to try and come to an informal agreement, take out a company voluntary agreement (CVA), put the company into administration, or go into administrative receivership.

A specialist insolvency solicitor will be able to help you manage a range of issues surrounding insolvency and bankruptcy and figure out the best next steps for you. If you’re in financial difficulty, your solicitor will help you reach the most suitable and amenable outcome, whether that’s to close down the company or come to an informal agreement with lenders. They will also help you address the implications your financial situation will have on your employees, working closely with our employment law and HR department.
