What is Corporate Insolvency?

A business enters the state of corporate insolvency when the scale of its debts and liabilities outweigh the value of its assets. This often means that the company is unable to pay its debts as they fall due (which is referred to as cash-flow insolvency.)

An insolvent business might not necessarily be facing certain liquidation, but in the vast majority of cases, the situation requires swift remedial action to be taken if the company is ultimately to continue trading.

Who can get help with Corporate Insolvency in Burnley?

We provide a full spectrum of corporate insolvency services in Burnley to everyone who might need them, including businesses, individuals and insolvency practitioners alike. Consumer debts, trading liabilities, unpaid tax and VAT, and liquidations are all well within our sphere of expertise, and we take pride in delivering a first-class service to every one of our customers.

Insolvency law for businesses in Burnley

Our legal specialists provide insolvency law services to Burnley businesses of any size, from SMEs to larger corporations, and across a wide variety of sectors. Our decades of expertise enables us to provide detailed guidance and advice on the full range of formal insolvency issues, right up to (and including) liquidation.

In business and accounting, liquidation is the process whereby a limited company in the UK is formally brought to an end. Part of this procedure involves selling the company’s assets and properties, with all proceeds used to pay back the creditors. If the company is still solvent at the time of liquidation, any generated cash may also be distributed to its shareholders.

Liquidation proceedings can take several forms:

  • A Company Voluntary Arrangement and a Members Voluntary Arrangement are two examples of liquidation proceedings that are instigated by the company’s shareholders, who may decide to wind up the business of their own volition.
  • A Compulsory Liquidation is initiated by a court, normally as the result of a petition by a creditor. In this case, company directors shareholders have comparatively little agency over the proceedings. They will normally be notified of intended insolvency proceedings with a Winding Up order or Statutory Demand.

At Farleys Solicitors, we know that each situation is different, so we always take care to assess your individual circumstances and goals before recommending a course of action. For example, if we deem it beneficial for you to take proactive voluntary steps towards insolvency, we can lay out the various insolvency options available to you. Alternatively, we can use our expertise to help formulate a turnaround strategy which has the best chance of rescuing your business.

If your company has been in receipt of a Statutory Demand, a Winding Up order or a Letter Before Claim, we can assist you in working out the best way to respond. Whatever the specifics of your circumstances, you can always trust our solicitors to be compassionate, efficient and proactive, making sure that we’re acting in your best interests at all times.

Insolvency law for individuals in Burnley

Our insolvency services in Burnley also encompass a range of legal services for individuals, including company directors. We know that finding yourself in the midst of any kind of legal proceedings can be stressful enough, but especially so when they relate to debt and other financial disputes. With our decades of expertise and customer focused approach, we’re here to minimise that stress by making everything as simple and straightforward for you as we can.

We can provide assistance in negotiations with your creditors, and help you to achieve a satisfactory resolution to your issue as efficiently as possible. This may involve (for example) an informal repayment plan, or the arrangement of an Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA). If bankruptcy is a factor, we can also provide detailed advice here as well, including any possible implications that might arise from non-payment.

If any of your creditors decide to take enforcement action against you, we can provide tailored, in-depth advice about how these proceedings can affect you, and what your options are for responding. If we feel it would be within your best interests to challenge these enforcement actions, we can even assist you in doing so.
