Administration - trading & pre pack

Administration is a formal insolvency procedure whereby an insolvency practitioner is appointed by either the directors, the company or the holder of a qualifying floating charge (usually the bank or other financial institution).   

An administration usually allows the business to continue trading throughout the process and provides protection against any enforcement action taken by creditors.

Trading administration 

This option allows the business to continue trading throughout the administration allowing employees to remain in a job whilst the sale of the business is considered. 

Pre pack administration

This solution allows for the sale of the business to be pre-arranged before or soon after the administrator is appointed. Directors or the management team can work with the administrator prior to the formal arrangement to agree terms of sale which can then take effect immediately.
