Company Insolvency Advice & Company Restructuring Advice

We know how to identify the key issues involved in company insolvency and company restructuring problems quickly. We are proactive and experienced in finding solutions for directors and Insolvency Practitioners, using our key contacts in the fields of Insolvency, Factoring, Banking and Invoice Discounting.

Formal insolvency procedures can be used equally well as a shield or a sword.  Sometimes, on the facts of a particular case, no matter how unpalatable such an option may seem, formal insolvency followed by a fresh trading start in a ‘Newco’ is the best and correct way forward for the company, its directors, shareholders and creditors.  We are well placed to advise on such matters.

Alternatively we have a complete range of skills and contacts, which can allow us to look at your issues and suggest a raft of potential solutions many of which, may not involve formal appointments but will provide a sensible solution to what to you may seem an intractable and often irreversible problem.

What we offer is independent advice with you as the focus. We aim to create a solution, which will bring back peace of mind and a successful trading future free of the shackles of your current difficulties.

The areas in which we can help your company insolvency and company restructuring problems are:

Are you dissatisfied by your current financiers?

Quite often, your ability to effectively run your business is inhibited and interfered with by the time that you as a business owner have to spend trying to free up your cash from your invoice financiers.

Relationships with such financiers can become strained and difficult. Here at NDP we have excellent relationships with a number of Factors, Invoice Discounters and Asset Based Lenders who we work regularly with.

If you feel that a free of charge, confidential chat with a new or alternate source of finance might be of benefit to you and your business, then please give us a call on 0121 700 2040. We will be happy to effect that introduction for you.

EXAMPLE: We have recently introduced an existing NDP client to a new invoice discounter, with the whole transaction taking place in a matter of seven working days, to include negotiating termination fees and putting new security documentation in place.
