We can offer assistance with turnaround and restructuring services, liquidation and administration appointments, negotiations with lenders and creditors, viability reviews and monitoring and debt recovery. 

In difficult circumstances, our objective is to relieve the pressure on you by negotiating on your behalf with creditors, HM Revenue and Customs, banks and, via our extensive business network, provide access, if appropriate, to funding options such as venture capital, invoice finance, and asset-backed lending.

If a company cannot be protected by informal agreements, we will arrange a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) which provides an invaluable breathing space, allowing you to keep running the business, while we deal with sorting out the financial problems. 

In the event that a turnaround cannot be secured, we can also assist with other formal insolvency processes.

On the freelance contracting side our Contractor MVL service is available. Our dedicated page all about ContractorMVLs explains the benefits of adopting a members’ voluntary liquidation when the time comes to close your limited company down.  

There are a number of guides for creditors and stakeholders to lead you through the various procedures. These guides are available on the ICAS website.
