A person or company can face insolvency when it is unable to pay its debts on time.

There are three main insolvency procedures. Voluntary administration will be triggered where a company falls into financial trouble and will result in a voluntary administrator being appointed to take control, investigate issues and report to creditors. Receivership is where a secured creditor has appointed a receiver to release assets to pay debts. If it has been decided that a company must be wound up, it will go into liquidation, allowing for assets to be distributed to those the company owes debts to.

Whether you are a director, employee, creditor or shareholder, the insolvency process will affect you differently.

If you own a company and believe you may be approaching financial difficulties, it is important to obtain legal advice immediately. TLFC Law will be able to assess your situation and provide avenues through which to avoid or mitigate any risks that may be on the horizon.
