There is unfortunately no potential shortage of issues that Yorkshire and UK organisations can face. Depending on industry, company size and many other factors, numerous financial challenges may arise, and sometimes when you least expect them to.

Business owners will know only too well that this does not just impact on their employees, but it can also affect themselves and their families too. It is, after all, difficult to separate work and home life when the two are so intertwined.

As licensed insolvency practitioners, the Leeds, Harrogate, Bradford and Darlington-based teams here at Walsh Taylor are experienced in providing clear and constructive advice to find the best possible solution in these situations. This means we regularly deal with administrations, bankruptcies, CVLs, CVAs, IVAs, MVLs, PVAs and receiverships.

To give you more of an idea of our services, below we will summarise how we assist our clients in seven key points:

1) Protect

Offer short-term protection from creditors and additional financial worries.

2) Negotiate

Liaise with creditors and different third parties.

3) Find alternatives

Help to determine alternative routes and strategies.

4) Rescue

Create a ‘survival plan’ that allows the designated organisation to continue trading where possible.

5) Investigate

Develop a deep understanding of every single situation to ensure that the correct solution is ultimately found.

6) Identify

Establish the best possible (yet realistic) direction for both the client and their company moving forward.

7) Restructure

Implement suitable changes within the business that will set it up for a strong future.
