What Is Voluntary Liquidation?

Insolvency In Ireland - What Is Voluntary LiquidationEven today, there are companies that find themselves in financial difficulty and file for bankruptcy.  This drastic step is often unnecessary because there are other options that can be taken. Bankruptcy should be a distressed company’s last resort, as the other options are a lot less severe on the reputations and credit ratings of the company directors involved.

The saying “It’s not over ‘till the fat lady sings” applies just as much to a distressed business as to an opera.  A distressed business may appear to be ready for it’s final curtain call, but a company director needs to get the best professional advice he can at this time.  An insolvency consultant can assess the full business situation and can often work out if the company can be saved, or not.

One such alternative action is Voluntary Liquidation.
