In accordance with Schedule B1 of the Insolvency Act 2012, Administration is a procedure that functions as a rescue mechanism for asset-rich, but insolvent companies.
Company Administration is usually a precursor or alternative to Liquidation, and allows a business to be rescued as a going concern; sold as whole; or offloaded in parts to realise revenue for creditors.
Commercial Debt Recovery takes place when a third party works on behalf of a supplier/creditor to collect outstanding amounts from a buyer/debtor. Debt litigation is often expensive and protracted, and a creditor’s efforts can be easily undermined or derailed by a debtor claiming to have a dispute.
The process of a Compulsory Liquidation starts when a Winding Up Petition is filed in court, usually by an unpaid creditor who claims the company is insolvent. If a judge agrees to make the order, the case will be sent to the Official Receiver (OR), a court official employed by the government’s Insolvency Service.
Litigation Funding takes place when a third party finances a court claim for commercial gain. Generally, there are 3 ways a claimant with a strong case but no money can pursue a claim, and secure the services of a lawyer: a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), a Damage-Based Agreement (DBA), and Litigation Funding.
Misfeasance is far worse than simple maladministration because it means a director has been dishonest and engaged in bad behavior, wrongdoing, or some form of misconduct that’s brought financial loss to creditors. Call us now for free and impartial advice on 020 7504 1300
