WHAT IS ADMINISTRATION?

Administration helps you to gain some control when your company is insolvent by stopping all legal actions from creditors who are chasing you for payment. It gives you a bit of space to step back and assess your options going forward, for example whether you are going to sell the company or try and salvage it.

We have a proven track record of providing innovative and creative solutions for business owners who feel like they have no options left. We can help you re-focus business activity, evaluate plans and strategies and work with the management team to make key business changes.

Pre-pack administrations

In a pre-pack administration the sale of the company’s assets is negotiated prior to appointing an administrator and the sale is executed immediately after appointment. There are a number of benefits of using a pre-pack as opposed to a regular administration process, including a generally quicker completion and being able to maintain some continuity of the business.

However, because the sale is arranged prior to the appointment of an administrator, creditors, shareholders and other potential buyers don’t get to find out about the sale until it has gone through. This has led to some scrutiny of the process in the past. Because of this, pre-packs are only appropriate in certain circumstances.
