Creditor Support

Business Recovery & Insolvency

author:

Brendan Clarkson

Each year thousands of companies and individuals are subject to an insolvency procedure. In turn, this means thousands of insolvency notices are sent to creditors. If you are a credit manager or a creditor who has received notification that a customer has become insolvent, we will be able to help you through our link with the National Creditor Services Department at Begbies Traynor.

Their dedicated team appreciates that creditors do not always have enough time or resources to pursue and deal with these outstanding debts. 

The aim of the National Creditor Services Department is to offer a bespoke and personal service to our clients that takes away the headache of managing all the insolvency documentation you receive. They can help recover outstanding debts owed to you by insolvent individuals and companies.

So, how will they help?

Their objective is to make sure that you, as a creditor, are represented and to assist you in recovering outstanding debts owed to you.

Once you receive an insolvency notice as a creditor there can be a lot of paperwork to deal with. They can deal with this on your behalf, allowing you to continue to focus on the day-to-day running of your business. 

In addition to assisting with paperwork, they can represent you at creditors’ meetings to protect your interests. Therefore, as a creditor, making good use of your proxy vote is very important. By having them represent you at any creditors’ meetings it ensures that the full facts of the insolvency procedure can be obtained and assessed, allowing them to work to obtain the best outcome for you. 

Of course, it may be the case that no insolvency proceedings have been started, but that you, as a creditor, are considering whether to start them. They can also help with this by conducting a review to assess the likelihood of a successful return by pursuing the creditor in this way and, therefore, establish whether this is a viable/worthwhile course of action for you to take.
