For some companies, the turnaround of its fortunes is just not possible and the formal insolvency options aimed at rescue, CVA and Administration, are not appropriate. If the business has no future, the company should be put into voluntary liquidation to bring its life to an end.
The liquidator will deal with the affairs of the old company and will distribute the available funds to those creditors that are entitled to them and this can have a critical impact on the directors if they have given personal guarantees.
If a company’s directors do not take timely action to address an insolvency issue then HM Revenue & Customs, or any other unsecured creditor, can petition the Court to have the company put into Compulsory Liquidation. If that happens, the directors’ options are immediately reduced and specialist advice is needed.
However, if the business is viable, it may be possible to make a fresh start for the business under a new company. The assets of the old company will need to be sold but the new company has an opportunity to buy what is needed. There are a number of legal issues and requirements that must be dealt with properly in order to ensure that the new company and its directors are fully compliant to achieve the best outcome.
