How can an Insolvency Practitioner help?

Recent years have been tough on UK businesses, and with continued challenges it is important to be aware that financial distress can happen to any business, no matter its size.  Fashion retailer Joules recently confirmed that it has appointed KPMG debt advisory to help bolster its cash position, confirming that the “group continues to focus on improving profitability, cash generation and liquidity headroom.”

Corporate insolvencies are widely expected to increase further as businesses now face rising inflation, and a cost-of-living crisis.

If your company is facing financial difficulty, it is important to seek professional advice from a licenced Insolvency Practitioner. They can help you assess the financial position and advise on how to move forward.

What is a Licensed Insolvency Practitioner?

An Insolvency Practitioner is a licenced professional who is best placed to help businesses facing financial difficulties.  They are experts in insolvency law and associated legislation and have a detailed understanding of the different procedures that can be used to help businesses recover. 

Insolvency practitioners must be properly licensed to undertake this type of work.  Being a licensed insolvency practitioner means being a member of a Recognised Professional Body (RPB) which has issued a license, authorising that person to act. 

When should I contact an Insolvency Practitioner?

Business owners and directors can sometimes find themselves embedded in the day-to-day tasks of ensuring a business continues to operate.  It can therefore be difficult to decide on whether to carry on, or when to seek professional advice.  If your business is showing any sign of financial strain, it is always best to seek advice at the earliest possible stage.  This is likely to mean that there will be more options available to the company than if the position deteriorates further.

How can an Insolvency Practitioner Help my Business?

An Insolvency Practitioner can help your business in many ways, by:

  • Reviewing the financial position of the company and assessing the options available
  • Preparing financial information and other documents for formal insolvency solutions
  • Preparing financial information and other documents for informal payment plans
  • Communicating with creditors and employees on behalf of the company
  • Resolving disputes, whether trading disputes, or shareholder disputes

Where a formal insolvency solution is not deemed to be appropriate (such as Administration, Company Voluntary Arrangement, or Liquidation) an Insolvency Practitioner can also assist in sourcing funding.  By working closely with banks, building societies and other lenders, we can introduce you to lenders who can help your business maintain a healthy cash flow.
