How does an insolvency practitioner get paid?

Usually, the insolvency practitioners’ fees remain paid from monies raised through the company’s sale of assets and monies collected from debtors of the company. Therefore, the company’s creditors normally pay the IP’s fee by receiving a reduced repayment or non at all.

What are the outcomes of Insolvency?

Depending on the companies circumstances, therefore, will determine the outcome.

For limited companies (or limited liability partnerships known as “LLP’s”) registered in England and Wales. The outcome of an Insolvency can be:

  • The company may go into administrator to enable a possible sale to protect jobs and improve its sale value. An administration then protects the company from creditors during this process.
  • A further option to consider with willing creditor support is a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA). A CVA allows a company to agree to a formal repayment of an agreed amount over an agreed period. It is, therefore protecting a viable company moving forward by aiding cash flow.
  • Finally, if the business is no longer feasible or sold, then Liquidation is the best option. If the directors receive approval from the companies shareholders? Then a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation (CVL) is adopted. If Not then the company may be wound up by say the HMRC and a Compulsory Liquidation began.

What is the distinction between an Insolvency Practitioner and the Official Receiver?

  • Therefore, an insolvency practitioner ( Licensed by a Professional body) remains appointed by directors or creditors of a limited company to act on their behalf.
  • The official receiver remains a provisional liquidator who is a civil servant employed by the Insolvency Service. 

What’s the difference between a Liquidation and Insolvency?

  • Liquidation closes a company down for good, sells all its assets to repay the company’s creditors, makes all staff and directors redundant, and then dissolves the company at companies’ house.
  • With an Administration, this process then aids the company to maintain trading to repay its debts and avoid Insolvency. 

Can I form a new company after Liquidation?

Yes and then may act as a Director. Though, having an Insolvency track record will eventually hinder you also, if you are under investigation for fraudulent trading with your last company or subject to a director ban.

Can I liquidate my business?

Individuals cannot liquidate their own limited companies. A licensed Insolvency Practitioner is the duly regulated and authorised person that carries out the closure legally of a limited company.

Can a company recover from Insolvency?

However, insolvent companies have various choices for paying their creditors; therefore, they allow the company to remain an entity while recovering their business.
