Insolvency Advice for Creditors
Insolvency is a group action brought against a company. You can only file for insolvency where there is a genuine belief that the company is insolvent. The process often starts with a statutory demand, which the debtor has 21 days to respond to. If there is no response, then a Winding Up Petition can be presented to the court. This is personally served on the debtor – they have seven days to respond, after which the petition is published in the London Gazette and the company’s bank accounts gets frozen until the date of the insolvency hearing. Because this is a group action, any money that you recover will be shared amongst all the creditors owed money by the insolvent company. For this type of specialist work we charge an hourly rate, with fees payable in advance. If you think that there may be a case for declaring a company insolvent, we can help you decide the best way forward.
