    What is Insolvency?

    Insolvency is a term when a company or individual is struggling financially and can no longer pay of debts when due. Before insolvency takes place an arrangement with creditors will try to set up to help pay any outstanding monies owed. If money can still not be paid the company or individual will need to look at formal insolvency options.  Insolvency is often caused by a myriad of factors. 

    Can I Sell Company Assets Before Liquidation?

    Yes, assets can be sold prior to liquidation however there are strict rules that you will need to stick to. Creditor interests will come first so money raised due to sale will need to go to paying off as many of the creditors as possible. 

    Your appointed liquidator will look into transactions made up to two years prior to insolvency. It is imperative that you do not put one creditor or a group of creditors in a better position than they would be in in the event the company is placed into a formal insolvency process. 

    What is the Process of Liquidation?

    Liquidation is a process of converting the company’s assets into cash and using the money raised to pay off as much of the company’s debts as possible. Once this has been done the company is then shut down.

    How Long Does Liquidation Last?

    There is no set time to how long liquidation can last but it can take 6-24 months depending on your company’s position.

    Do I Have to Pay for Advice?

    Your first meeting will be free of charge, we will discuss everything you need and find the best solution going forward. This can be done at your premises or at our Driffield office.

    I Have Received a Winding Up Petition

    As soon as a winding up petition has been received you need to seek advice immediately from a licensed insolvency practitioner, this meeting will be free. 

    A winding- up petition is an application made by a creditor to the court for the compulsory liquidation of company. Any dispositions of property are void once a winding-up petition has been issued.

    I Have No Funds Left; How Can I Afford to Pay an Insolvency Practitioner?

    Remember your first meeting is free, the guidance from your insolvency practitioner could stop creditors from taking legal action against you.
