Business Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy Solicitors in Manchester and London

If your business has debts which have been unpaid over a specified period of time, it may be declared bankrupt and wound up. Our business bankruptcy solicitors have years of experience in dealing with businesses going bankrupt and so can offer expert advice and assistance if you declaring your business bankrupt.

When this happens, the company’s assets are sold off to create funds to pay your creditors in a process known as liquidation. Once this has been done, the company no longer exists and cannot trade. However, in many cases the assets do not amount to the debts owed, and there is a set hierarchy of which debts are prioritised over others.

Before this happens though, a written demand must be made, and you must be given 21 days to pay the outstanding debt. This debt must be unsecured and be over £750. If the debts remain unpaid, then proceedings can begin. Monarch Solicitors can assist in defending or approving the petition at court.

Most frequent questions and answers

If your business fails to pay back any debt within a reasonable time, you can voluntarily make your business bankrupt or be forced to be made bankrupt by a creditor.

When your business becomes bankrupt, a trustee will take over management of the business’ assets and finances. The assets of the business will be liquidated to pay off any debts owed to creditors.

An Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) is a legally binding agreement made by you to a creditor to pay back all or part of your debts over a period of time. 

To draw up a IVA, you need to instruct a insolvency practioner, who will deal with the creditors throughout the term of the IVA, and provide them with details such as assets, income, debts and creditors. The insolvency practitioner shall then calculate how much you can afford to repay and create a payment plan of when and how much needs to be paid to the creditors. The IVA will take effect once creditors holding 75% of your debts agree to the IVA. The IVA will apply to all creditors including those who disagreed to the IVA.
