Research shows that the insolvency profession is good for the economy
It's great to have some good news about the economy and about the insolvency profession. Research carried out by ComRes, a leading polling and research agency, shows that the UK’s insolvency industry helped to save nearly two million jobs in companies going through insolvency and rescued around six thousand (5,851) businesses last year. In addition, the UK’s Insolvency Practitioners who work on corporate insolvencies spend nearly a quarter of their time on preventing insolvencies rather than dealing with companies that have already gone to the wall.
Hopefully this will go some way towards changing people's opinions of what insolvency practitioners like me actually do. Before I joined the profession, my own experience of dealing with an insolvency practitioner had not been entirely positive. I often think back to that time and as a result I am determined to be the type of practitioner who is focussed on delivering the right advice at the right time, concentrating on preserving businesses and jobs, rescuing companies and keeping people out of bankruptcy where possible and practical.
My goal is to give balanced, impartial advice on all the options, to allow people to make their own informed decision. Business owners know far more about their business than I ever will, so my job is to offer the various tools in my insolvency 'toolbox' and help them understand how they can help deal with debt and insolvency problems in their individual circumstances.
But I can't work miracles. I can't turn back the clock and I can't wave a magic wand. The sooner that I am asked to help, the more options there will be and the more chance we will have in turning things around.
So if you've been worrying about debt but you've been concerned about asking advice from a 'corporate undertaker', why not call me, Dr Debt, the company doctor. My number is 01709 331300 and it costs nothing to have a chat about your options.
