Advice on how to enter Administration and survive

If your business finds itself in a financial crisis then it may be wise to consider entering Administration. Key indicators might include any of the following:

  • Withdrawal of support by key stakeholders e.g. the bank investor/key suppliers
  • Unpaid HM Revenue and Customs debt
  • Loss of key customer/bad debt
  • Loss of key personnel within the business
  • Threat of legal action

Company Administration is widely misunderstood and, while some see it as a last resort, in reality the process is designed to be centred around strengthening your business and getting it back on track.

Company Administration without the stress

Where the threat of administration exists, a licensed insolvency practitioner should be engaged to help you review the nature of the difficulties and help the company find a solution. Our corporate insolvency practitioners will aim to turn around the financial crisis so that your business can continue to trade and can grow. The main aim of Administration is to:

  • Rescue the company
  • Achieve a better result than if the company were to be placed into liquidation

Using our extensive skills will help to give your business a real fighting chance to survive.

More information

Why do companies enter Administration?

To provide the directors with time to restructure the business without the pressures of unmanageable debt.

What happens when a company is in Administration?

Administration was introduced by the Insolvency Act 1986 as a procedure aimed at rescuing companies in crisis. When in Administration, the company finances and property will be managed by a person appointed for that purpose, known as the Administrator.

  • Rescuing the company as a going concern, or
  • Achieving a better result for the company's creditors as a whole than would be likely if the company were wound up (without first being in Administration), or
  • Realising property in order to make a more advantageous distribution to secured or preferential creditors.

The Administrator must perform the first function unless he or she thinks that it is not reasonably practicable to achieve it, or that the second objective would achieve a better result for the company's creditors as a whole.

The Administrator may work towards the third objective only if it is thought that it is not reasonably practicable to achieve either of the first two objectives, and it is not likely to harm the interests of the creditors of the company as a whole.

Once the company is in administration a moratorium is put in place to protect it from creditors who may seek to recover any assets.

As a Partnership, can we enter Administration?

Partnerships, as well as private limited companies and public limited companies, can enter Administration.

How do creditors view Administration?

Many creditors will understand that you are considering Administration as you want to continue trading, and are not looking to cease trading. Creditors will usually recognise the situation and work with the Administrator for an outcome that is satisfactory to all.

Alternative Debt Solutions


An IVA allows you to renegotiate the terms of your arrangements with your creditors. If you have unsecured debts with a number of creditors that you are unable to pay this is an alternative to formal bankruptcy. An IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) allows you to manage your debts with a solution that will give your creditors money over a period of time, which is normally 60 months.

Business Turnaround & Review

The term “turnaround” has come to encompass a range of measures aimed at restoring the fortunes of a company with (or preferably without) the use of a formal insolvency procedure. These measures include strengthening (or replacing) the existing management team, introduction of fresh capital, restructuring finances (e.g. replacing short term loans with longer term ones), reduction of cost base and (if a formal insolvency procedure is required) the use of a Company Voluntary Arrangement to enable the company to deal with its creditors in an orderly manner.
