Harrisons Business Rescue
Harrisons Business Rescue
- Usually liquidation occurs when a business runs out of cash and there is no obvious means of either generating cash or buying time to help save the business.
- This usually means the end of the business.
- Other times its a way of reorganising a business into parts that work and parts that dont so at least part of the business carries on.
- We can help you determine the position you are in and suggest a solution that works for you based on your circumstances.
Company Voluntary Arrangement
- This is where a company is short of cash, usually after some sort of setback, but is essentially profitable.
- A workable business plan is prepared to demonstrate to creditors that if given time, they will receive some return on their debt.
- This may be full or partial repayment.
- Once a workable plan is agreed, this will be presented to creditors for their agreement.
- Administration is usually used where the business is insolvent but there is a part of it that is viable.
- The administration process allows that part to be saved usually by a sale to either the current directors or owners or to a third party.
- The administration process allows the business to be ring fenced and protected from creditors while a workable solution is found.
- For individuals who cant pay their debts there are a number of options.
- Which is best will be based on your circumstances and what you want to achieve in the future.
- A full review of your circumstances will ensure that you get the right advice to pick the right option.
Issues With HMRC
- HMRC will usually be a large creditor of a business as owners tend to pay ongoing suppliers so that the business can be kept going. HMRC tend to be paid last.
- HMRC will listen to offers of repayment but need to be approached quickly before enforcement action is started.
- We can help with this approach and help collect the information they need such as cashflow’s to demonstrate over what time frame they can expect the repayment.
- Businesses usually need funding for the short or long term for a range of reasons.
- Banks would usually be the first choice but they dont always want to lend.
- We are able to help find alternative sources, some though our existing contacts, to meet that need.
- Business restructure for all sorts of reasons but can be used to make future sales of parts of the bsuiness easier in the future.
- Other reasons can be to separate assets from the trading activity just in case of problems
- They can also be used for tax reasons when looking to retire from the business.
- We can help you find the right solution either ourselves or through working with our range of expert contacts.
- Mediation removes the stress, cost and risk of court proceedings as should be considered first in the dispute process.
- Mediation is a voluntary process and will also usually be quicker than going to court.
- Its a confidential process and attempts to mediate may be requested by the court and considered if further court applications.
Non Exec Or Interim Directors
- We appreciate that at some stage you need more help and guidance in your business but that it may not be a full time position.
- That could be because it relates to a specific issue, the finances placing limitation on pay or its more of a ‘sounding board’ role.
- Having over 100 years of experience between us of working with thousands of business reach their goals, we can help through either a formal or informal appointment.
- We strive to work with you find the best solution for your business.
