Finding impartial and independent insolvency advice is a challenge for business owners and their accountants. There are a batch of insolvency practitioners recommending liquidation or administration, short term lenders recommending more debt and everything in between. The team C&D Restructure and Taxation Advisory is different, we are independent and only work for the business owner. 

Our insolvency service looks at the entirety of the situation and then makes recommendations as to what is best for you and your business, ensuring that you meet all your obligations to get the best result for you and your creditors. We aim to provide an all-encompassing solution for business owners, with an insolvency consultant to help you through the process and ensuring that the decisions made are with the best information at hand. 

No matter what the best solution we provide the advice without fear or favour, as we are completely impartial, we are only there to find the best solution through our insolvency service and unlike others won’t recommend solutions that have neither longevity, practicality or which will make things worse than what they already are. 

Pre-Insolvency Advice

A misnomer and a tough description. What we do is advise you of your options and whether a path towards an insolvency option may be best. Our pre-insolvency advice service will look at all the options, whether that is to engage insolvency professionals, trade out, negotiate with creditors or a combination of them all. We gather as much information as possible, review as much as we can and then propose a solution based on what the best result will be for all stakeholders. 

There is a reluctance around the phrase pre-insolvency advice but without it, you are not going to be able to find the best solution for you and your creditors. This part of the process is to identify your position, that of the business and what the future looks like and prepare a solution that will ensure that whatever path is taken it is best for you. Offering a pre-insolvency advice service, we work hard to find practical solutions that don’t make a problem worse, nor place you in additional risk. 

All too often we find a business owner who has been pushed into administration without necessarily understanding their options or the potential consequences. Speaking only to an administrator may not result in understanding what the other options are, and what will give the best result. 

An insolvency advice package includes:

  • understanding the current position;
  • understanding your position;
  • reviewing liabilities and debt;
  • understanding the business;
  • talking through all options; and
  • meeting with an insolvency consultant and determining a suitable outcome.

Making sure that you are well informed of your obligations and options, we pride ourselves on being an impartial advocate in terms of finding the best solution for you and your creditors. We won’t push you to a solution that is not right to simply push the matter along. Our pre-insolvency advice will also include giving you an understanding of the processes ahead – ensuring that you are well informed about your rights and responsibilities. Importantly, we have no referral or commission arrangements with any third-party providers and will only recommend a solution based on your and your business’ best interests. That means if you work with us, we are only acting for you.
