Business debts

With the benefit of hindsight, it sometimes becomes apparent that internal decisions regarding purchases, product pricing, salaries and office costs, for example have resulted in unexpected debts, which can damage the health of the business.

External factors may also result in financial strain for the business. Contract delays or cancellations, loss of customers and unexpected product supply issues are examples of matters which can quickly lead to serious cash flow difficulties. How you deal with business debts will depend, to some extent, on whether your business is a limited company, a partnership or your own business as a sole trader.

These can include refinancing existing debts, informal repayments arrangements and also formal insolvency solutions designed to assist with business recovery.
