One part of my business is really profitable but the other is loss-making and is causing us financial difficulties. What can I do?

It may be possible to restructure your operation and there may even be a market to sell the loss making part to someone, perhaps with more resources, experience or appetite to run the business. We will help untangle the different operations and help you present your business to potential purchasers in the best possible light. We also work closely with experienced corporate finance and business turnaround specialists who can be on hand to offer advice and services.

I think my business is insolvent what should I do?

The worst thing you can do is do nothing. As a director you have a responsibility not only to shareholders of the business but also to creditors. There are also many insolvency offences you could possibly be falling foul of, you may be wrongfully trading and in the worst case scenario be looking at director disqualification.
