Types of Insolvency
There are different types of insolvency and the most common ones include liquidation, receivership and voluntary administration. Where it is not practically possible to save a business, the best possible way to go forward is with a voluntary administration. Company liquidations allow for a qualified, independent person to ensure the company is wound up in an orderly manner. A company may be placed into receivership when a receiver is appointed by a creditor exercising a security over the assets of the company.
Personal bankruptcy should be your last resort, and our lawyers will work with you to find alternative solutions to your financial problems. There are alternative debt solutions available and you should know what your options are before you make a decision to declare yourself bankrupt.
When someone is declared bankrupt, the person won’t have to deal with his or her creditors anymore. A trustee will be appointed to organise the sale of the person’s property to allow some of the money to go to the creditors. The trustee can also investigate the person’s conduct before he or she became bankrupt, to assess whether any transactions can be set aside.
