Business Restructuring and Insolvency (BRI)

Our primary focus is to advise and support in the recovery of a struggling business.

This can often be achieved through a refinancing or restructuring although we recognise that this is not always possible. Therefore, as licensed insolvency practitioners, we are able to act in a suitable formal insolvency procedure.

We also help clients realise successful business investments tax efficiently and securely by means of a solvent liquidation (MVL) on which we offer a competitive fixed price service.

Partners would normally be personally liable for the partnership debts on a joint and several basis which can create a complex situation of interlinking partnership and personal liabilities.

Limited Partnerships and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) reduce the burden to a greater or lesser degree.

We can help you to understand how partnership and personal positions interact and devise an appropriate strategy to achieve the best result for all concerned.

Small and medium sized businesses currently face a difficult trading environment caused by a range of factors including pricing pressures, increasing costs and customers who default or are slow to pay. Refinancing working capital has also become increasingly difficult.

We have helped when SMEs, in a wide range of sectors, need to restructure their debts by assisting with informal negotiations or more formal time to pay arrangements or proposals for a voluntary arrangement (CVA).

Should it be necessary we can also advise and act in formal insolvency procedures such as administration or liquidation.

In the first instance please contact one of our team who would be pleased to answer any questions that you have.

You can also view our Guide to corporate insolvency for further information about the various options that could be available.

Solvent Liquidation (MVL)

A solvent liquidation or Members Voluntary Liquidation ('MVL') is a statutory process in which a company's assets are realised and distributed to the shareholders so that the company can then be dissolved.

An MVL can form part of a wider group reorganisation and we work closely with our tax team in order to ensure efficient tax planning.
