- COMPANY CLOSURE
If a company cannot pay its debts as and when they fall due and have more liabilities than they do assets, then the company will be deemed insolvent. At this stage it is better to take action as any delays could result in the position getting worse, some options running out and potential liabilities to the directors.
Sometimes, it is inevitable that a company will need to close. If it is at this stage, we will make sure that all other avenues are explored and then advise on the most appropriate closure route.
We understand that there will be job losses and lots of mixed emotions from all people connected with the firm. This is particularly difficult if it is a family business.
There may be liabilities that directors of other key persons will become responsible, such as a personal guarantee from the bank. We will take all this into account.
Whatever way a company is closed, at Revive Business Recovery we make sure that this is done with decorum and professionalism in a timely manner.
A company can be closed through an administration (if a rescue is not possible) or liquidation. For administration information please see the Business Rescue Section.
There are three types of liquidation, a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation, a Winding-Up by Court (also known as a Compulsory Liquidation) and a Members Voluntary Liquidation (Solvent Company – See Solvent Solutions page).
