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.

✓   Write off unaffordable debt
✓   One monthly repayment
✓   Only pay what you can afford
✓   Stop creditor harassment

An IVA may not be suitable in all circumstances. Fees may apply. Entering into an IVA will affect your credit rating. You could write off up to 80% of your debts upon successful completion of an IVA.(10% of our customers wrote off 80% in the last 12 months, with a typical figure of 25%-75%).

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.
