Debtor Instigated Corporate Insolvency – Liquidation / Deregistration
Where the directors of a company are aware that the company is insolvent – and wish to do something about it, a debtor instigated insolvency administration will arise. We have the skills and experience to provide various strategies to assist and support companies to meet these challenges.

Where the company and its core business is worth saving, the strategies may include Voluntary Administrations or informal arrangements. Where the situation is such that recovery is not feasible, liquidation or de-registration may be the most appropriate options.

Creditor Voluntary Liquidation

Generally undertaken when a company is unable to trade on. Liquidations normally spell the end of the company's life. The liquidator's function is to realise the assets in the most beneficial manner for ordinary unsecured creditors.

Voluntary Liquidations commence as a consequence of a special resolution at a duly convened meeting of members. There are two types - members' voluntary liquidations, wherein the company is solvent and will pay all its debts in full, and creditors' voluntary liquidations, wherein the company is insolvent.

In a creditor's voluntary liquidation, a meeting of creditors must be held shortly after the member's meeting to give the creditors the opportunity to appoint their own Liquidator should they so desire.

There are two other methods by which a company may progress to a creditors' voluntary liquidation - where creditors refuse to accept the company's proposal for a Deed of Company Arrangement, or where a Deed of Company Arrangement fails, and creditors resolve that the company be wound up. In each of those cases, the Administrator or deed Administrator generally becomes the Liquidator.
