What is Corporate Insolvency?

Insolvency law in the UK relates to companies who are unable to repay their debts or are struggling to do so as and when they fall due. Insolvency can lead to the end of your business, the redundancies of your employees and ever more severe consequences for yourself.

Corporate insolvencies happen throughout the year, but research from the insolvency and restructuring trade body R3 has shown that they may increase this winter, starting as early as this October. An overwhelming 93.7% of respondents in the study expect corporate insolvency numbers to rise over the next year. While a following 56.1% predicted that the increase will occur between October and December 2020.

This can be attributed in part to the Covid-19 pandemic, with 61.7% of respondents suggesting the main triggers for corporate insolvency advice would be as a result of rent payments or arrears. A further 49.7% attribute it to trade debts, 48.1% to tax payments or arrears and 35.5% say it could be as a result of wage payments.
