In this case, your best bet is to be proactive by liquidating voluntarily.
The objective of a (voluntary) liquidation is to repay as much money to the creditors as
possible in the shortest time.
With our unique approach and competitive fee structure we can ensure that the
liquidation will maximise the value of your company's assets and minimise costs.
(initiated by a creditor through the court)
If you are a credit controller or a debt collector, you will know the frustration
involved when credit was advanced in good faith but legal action has been required to put
the company in liquidation.
Even worse is when you find that the company has no assets or assets have been pledged
to a secured charge holder.
When this happens, you will need answers to the following questions.
When did the company become insolvent?
Where did the money go?
Did the directors act in a reckless manner?
At Gerard Hulst & Associates we are experienced in court liquidations and at
investigating the affairs of insolvent companies.
Our unique reporting structure will provide the answers to your questions.
