Turnaround and Restructure
With this option, time and speed are key: the earlier we can advise you, the more likely it is your business will survive and avoid a formal insolvency process.
On a practical level, here’s how you can benefit from our help:
- Carry out an initial assessment on the Company’s trading, to find the reasons for non-performance.
- Discuss whether the business is (or can be) viable going forward.
- Assess whether a formal insolvency procedure can be avoided.
- Review whether, with careful management, the Company can trade out of its present position.
- See whether the Company is able to refinance, or will benefit from restructuring.
- If formal insolvency proceedings cannot be avoided, advise on the options available to the Company.
- Assist with creditor negotiation in the short term whilst a formal survival plan is prepared.
After this assessment, you’ll get practical solutions for your company’s survival and, ultimately, an exit strategy for you and all stakeholders.
Most important of all, you’ll receive the best support and assistance for your needs, based on your circumstances, at an affordable investment, and one which can give you a considerable return.

When your company goes into administration it receives a moratorium i.e. legal protection.
This means creditors can’t start or continue any legal action against your company, which gives you time to restructure your business and plan an exit strategy. Administration may allow for the sale of the business as a going concern. In some instances it may be appropriate to use the ‘Pre-Pack’ Administration Process to protect the asset value.
