Trading whilst insolvent

If your business is in financial difficulty and may be insolvent you should seek specialist legal advice at the earliest possible opportunity. If the business subsequently enters a formal insolvency procedure and you have continued to trade whilst it was insolvent there is a high risk of an insolvency practitioner seeking to recover loss incurred in that period from directors personally.

Trading while insolvent can breach several provisions of the Insolvency Act 1986 which could result in directors disqualification proceedings.

As a company director it is your duty to act responsibly and act in the best interests of the company.
