How we help you

There are a number of different services that we provide to directors to help you through some of the most common business challenges.

  • Avoid insolvency pitfalls – make sure that the directors don’t cross any red lines when paying dividends, settling intercompany accounts and dealing with creditors correctly.
  • Negotiate with creditors – we can help you negotiate time to pay agreements with HMRC or maybe you have received an Accelerated Payment Notice (“APN”), if so we can help you gain vital breathing space to restructure debts so that you can free up cash flow whilst still honouring debts with other creditors.
  • Help avoid personal liability – you could be personally liable for some of the company’s debts, we can guide you to help minimise this exposure.
  • Close down your company – in certain circumstances you may decide that it is not optimal to continue operations and want to cease trading. In this case McTear Williams & Wood can quickly help you achieve the best outcome.
