A common sense way to trade out of cash flow problems.This a very common approach. Your company hits a problem that is not life threatening but you have serious cashflow difficulties, possibly Tax and VAT arrears and creditors shouting loudly. Following this guide and applying common sense may help you get out of that position. However putting in more of your own money is not really trading out but delaying the inevitable if there is not a radical change in the running of the company or a big turnaround in its fortunes.  A good way of guaranteeing the future is to compromise some debts via a CVA and THEN put money into the business with a debenture to protect your position.

Trading Out

Under the Business Payments Support Service, your company can obtain a time to pay deal directly from the tax man. Call 0845 3021435 and ask for assistance. Ideally your will have prepared forecasts, cash flow forecasts and a plan to repay the tax over an AFFORDABLE period of time. We can help you with this.

Our guide to refinancing the company.

Refinance Your Company


Selling your business when it is in distress is difficult as buyers will want to know why and will price accordingly.  That said, if the problem is solvable they may well buy your business for assets like contacts, intellectual property etc. You can sell your business via Business Sale Report for instance. However do not be tempted to sell a business to someone that says you do not need to go into a formal insolvency process when it is obvious that it should be liquidated.  This could be deemed as defrauding creditors.
