The attorneys at the Law Offices of Aaronson Schantz Beiley P.A., have been successful in working with companies that need to restructure. Restructuring includes developing new strategies that are incorporated into a business plan that has targeted goals and through which debts to creditors have been negotiated in a manner that results in new payment arrangements.
The point of restructuring is to give your company the best chance of surviving a particularly stressful financial situation that may be the result of one or many economic and business factors. In order for restructuring to be successful, all aspects of your enterprise must be examined and analyzed. Restructuring may involve consolidating operations, downsizing certain areas of your company, and changing the manner in which you do business. Working with creditors, which includes convincing them that your restructuring plan will work and benefit them, is also essential to your success in this endeavor.
Insolvency is directly related to your company’s debt and the restructuring of its debt. If your business is insolvent, this does not mean that you have to file for bankruptcy. Your company may be suffering from one of various types of insolvency, such as cash flow, technical, or accounting insolvency. Each type of insolvency can put stress on you ability to conduct business and each one demands that you restructure your debt, and often your entire company, in order to pull your business out of the tenuous fiscal situation in which it finds itself.
Types of Insolvency
- Cash flow Insolvency: this situation is the result of a company being unable to pay its debts on time.
- Technical Insolvency: this means that a business is unable to meet its financial obligations, such as payroll and paying creditors.
- Accounting Insolvency: with this situation total liabilities are greater than total assets, with the result being the company has a negative net worth.
You Have Choices
As a business owner dealing with rising or crushing debt, you do have choices in how to approach insolvency, and often the best choice is to go through the process of restructuring your business and its debt. Working with a business lawyer who understands and can clearly explain your range of choices and who has been successful in facilitating business workouts, restructurings, and other such methods devoted to debt relief will help to ensure that you are taking the correct path.
It is important that business owners understand that there is no need to panic or make quick, uninformed decisions. That addressing insolvency takes logical analysis, the development of a practical plan, and careful negotiations with creditors to finally create a solution that will have a lasting and positive effect.
