Frequently Asked Questions

Corporate insolvency refers to a business that does not have sufficient assets to cover its liabilities, usually resulting in the company being unable to satisfy debts as they fall due. While this will undoubtedly be a stressful time, experiencing financial distress does not automatically lead to liquidation. Taking swift action offers the best possible chance of turning around your fortunes.

A company is deemed to be insolvent if its available assets are outweighed by its liabilities. There are a few methods to determine the solvency of a business, such as the balance sheet test and the cash flow test. It’s important to have a clear understanding of your company’s financial position, as trading while insolvent can lead to the risk of fines and other penalties.

If you determine that your business is insolvent, you must cease trading immediately and cancel all contracts, both present and future. You should seek specialist advice from restructuring and insolvency solicitors, who will guide you through your obligations and find the best possible solution for your circumstances.

Yes, it is entirely possible for a company to recover from insolvency. However, it is important to take decisive action as soon as you realise your business is experiencing financial difficulty. This is because the sooner you look into the problem, the more options you will have. If left for too long, your only remaining solution may be liquidation.

The most common method of closing an insolvent company is via liquidation. This can either be done voluntarily by the business owners, or forcibly by its creditors. Our team of corporate restructuring and insolvency solicitors can guide you through the entire process whichever method is chosen, and offer reliable support throughout.
