1. Is your company solvent or insolvent? You can get the answer to this at our page Is my company insolvent? Solvent Insolvent
2. Is the company currently running at a Net Profit? In the current period is your company trading at a profit or loss. You can get this from the monthly accounts. If you do not prepare monthly accounts, your current cash flow is often a good indicator of whether you are currently trading profitably. Profit Loss
3. Can the company run at a Net Profit next year? You need to think about the future prospects of your company, after you’ve made adjustments to the business. If it is currently trading at a profit, is this sustainable into next year? If it is currently trading at a loss, are there things that can be done to return the company to profitability? Those things can include quite radical changes to the company such as shutting a division, increasing prices or reducing costs. Profit Loss
4. Will ALL of the key stakeholders continue to support the company even if a restructuring is required: Key Directors, Key Suppliers, Bank, and Key Staff? In order to restructure a company, the key stakeholders must be willing to support the company through the time it takes to return the company to profitability. If any one of the key stakeholders withdraws support it is likely to be impossible to restructure the company. Will Support Will NOT support
