What is an insolvency company?

When a firm is insolvent, it is unable to pay its debts. This could signify one of two things: it is unable to pay bills when they become due, or it has more liabilities than assets on its income statement.

Insolvent businesses face closure. However, corporate directors may be able to take action that allows the company to continue trading.

If your company is suffering money problems, even if you believe they are transitory, you should ensure that you understand the options presented in the paper and their consequences.

You should also probably seek professional guidance.

Methods for dealing with your company's insolvency

The term 'insolvency' refers to both the condition in which an insolvent company finds itself, as well as the different legal procedures for dealing with this problem under the Insolvency Act of 1986.

How To Avoid The Risk Of Insolvency?

There are 4 main ways for an insolvent firm to keep running.

  •   Directors can: contact all creditors to see if an informal arrangement can be reached; enter into a company voluntary arrangement; and place the firm into administration, providing some relief from creditor action and enables the business to continue property to be sold.
  •   You can also choose to liquidate ('wind up') your business. This signifies that the corporation has been liquidated, and its assets have been sold and dispersed to its creditors.
  •   Actions that can be taken against a bankrupt corporation Creditors can recover debts by obtaining a court judgement or submitting a statutory demand (an official request for payment). Once they have completed this, you can take steps to safeguard your firm against compulsory liquidation (forcing it to close). If creditor are unable to collect their debts by a court judgement or statutory demand, they may apply to wind up the business (compulsory liquidation).
  •   You can ask the court to stay (or prevent) the issuance of a winding-up order. This will allow us to take action on your own (eg by entering into a CVA or administration). Alternatively, creditors may seek to place your business in administration.

Step 2: A professional is selected, and he or she has 180 days + 90 days to devise a plan and establish a group of creditors.

Step 3: If the insolvency expert has been unable to devise a plan, the firm is liquidated. The board of directors has been suspended as well.

Step 4: The professional will oversee the company. A group of (financial) creditors will be constituted to try to resurrect the company.

Step 5: If all efforts fail, the company's assets will be dealt with in compliance with the Act.

What happens if a company is unable to pay its bills?

When a firm has been unable to pay its debts, it is declared bankrupt. Failure to act in this manner may expose directors to what is known as 'wrongful trading,' which happens after the point of insolvency when the director takes action that benefits himself, one particular creditor over the others, or another party.
