Why you shouldn’t appoint an Insolvency Practitioner

If your accountant or lawyer advises you to immediately appoint an insolvency practitioner because “it’s illegal to trade whilst insolvent’ think long and hard before you do that.

An Insolvency Practitioner is never on your side. He is on the side of your creditors.


He will be heavily influenced by large creditors like HMRC.


He will seem friendly until you appoint him but there is a very real danger that he’ll turn out to be your worst enemy.


Life could potentially be very difficult if you want to start a new Company to take over where the old one left off.


There are also many stories of liquidators or administrators suing Company directors and going after their personal assets.


In addition they can file negative reports to government agencies leading to disqualification proceedings and other such distractions.

Be careful what you tell your accountant………….

Most people when faced with a struggling company take advice from their existing professional advisers such as lawyers and accountants.


You should be very careful discussing some issues with accountants, in particular.


Accountants have a legal duty to report you to the authorities if they think you’re doing anything illegal.


There have been numerous prosecutions where accountants have reported clients for Vat and Tax issues because they thought their client was breaking the law.

Of course it’s not illegal not to pay Vat or Tax. It’s only illegal to put in a false return. Obviously you should never do this or break the law in any way.


Our team, which includes lawyers, ex insolvency practitioners and people like you who have been through this before, can help with these matters better than anybody else.
