Creditor's Guide to Administration

We help creditors gain greater control and improve outcomes in the Administration process.

What is Administration?

Administration is a procedure that functions as a rescue mechanism for asset-rich but insolvent companies, and is usually a precursor or alternative to liquidation. The procedure allows a business to be:

  • Rescued as a going concern
  • Sold as whole
  • Offloaded in parts to realise cash for creditors.

How to enter

Following an application to court for an Administration Order, there are ways a company can be placed into Administration:

  • In court
  • Out of court
  • If a charge holder (creditor) invites an Administrator (insolvency practitioner) to act as interim chief executive with custodial responsibility for the company's obligations and assets.

The information you disclose may be used to bring misfeasance or Director Disqualification Proceedings against you. A director accused of serious misconduct could face prosecution, and be banned from managing companies for up to 15 years.
