Company Solutions

If your business is faced with debts which seem unmanageable, our insolvency specialists are able to ease the burden with a range of corporate debt solutions. These include:

Creditors Voluntary Liquidation (CVL)

This is a process in which Directors make the decision to voluntarily wind up the company. This process allows Directors to nominate their own Liquidator, who will be responsible for realising any assets of the company and making distributions to creditors.

We will advise on if this is the right solution for your business, ensuring you understand all your responsibilities and your future liabilities are minimised. This process will enable you to proceed without requiring lengthy court proceedings and adding additional stress.

Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVA)

Company Voluntary Arrangements, (CVA’s”) are a recovery process designed to rescue and restructure an insolvent or struggling business.

A CVA is an agreement with your creditors to pay them over a fixed period. Although this requires agreement from your creditors, it allows you to keep your business running during a difficult time and come through the other side successfully.

Our team will work with your creditors to secure agreements all parties are happy with and advise you on the best way to move forward with your business.

Company Administration

An administration is a solution designed to give a company suffering financial difficulties the opportunity to come to an agreement with creditors before continuing to trade.

A Licensed Insolvency Practitioner can be appointed as Administrator, this protects the company from further financial action for a set period of time and is designed to help businesses successfully weather the financial storm.

Our team has vast experience in these time-pressured scenarios and will negotiate hard with your creditors to achieve a result which allows your business to continue trading.

Exit Strategies/Solvent Liquidations

Members Voluntary Liquidation

This process is used when a fully solvent company is being wound up because it is no longer required. Should you choose to undergo this, we will ensure all procedures are followed and the winding-up process goes smoothly.

We have worked with individuals to ease their worries regarding personal debt for many years, and can help you find solutions in all key areas:

Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVA)

An IVA is a legally-binding agreement with your creditors to pay them over a fixed period.

If your debts would be manageable over a longer time period than you are currently expected to pay them, we will demonstrate this and arrange an IVA which makes your payments manageable.

Informal Voluntary Arrangements

Similar to Individual Voluntary Arrangements, an Informal Voluntary Arrangement is an agreement with your creditor to pay them over a longer time period.

Informal Agreements, however, are come to by mutual agreement with creditors without the involvement of courts, saving you the added stress of a court case. If this is right for you, we’ll arrange it with your creditors, allowing you to focus on making payments, rather than worrying about getting into more debt.

Bankruptcy

If all alternative options have been exhausted and you’re still unable to pay your debts, we will help arrange a bankruptcy order and provide advice on moving forward from this measure.

We have received an excellent service from the team at RPG for well over 20 years. We particularly appreciate RPG's real interest in our company and suggestions for improvements. The service RPG provides goes well beyond what we could expect.  The attention to detail and the prompt, professional service the team provides means that we are reassured that should we require urgent or unusual advice, the team will provide it. We would have no hesitation in recommending RPG.

I would like to thank RPG for your unbelievable help, assistance and friendship for over 40 years. Nothing has ever been too much trouble. Words alone are insufficient, and I think that the same would apply to my former colleagues and my family who have also come to rely on your advice and guidance.

We have worked with RPG for many years, for good reason. They are not only extremely knowledge but they really take the time to get to know you as customers and also as people. This really makes a difference, as whilst it is of course important that you receive great service, which we do, it’s also essential to work with professionals who you can really trust and who go out of their way to know your business as well as you do, giving ultimate comfort that you are all striving towards the same goals. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
