Company Restructuring can

At Restructuring Works, we are insolvency experts working with directors to identify the “least drastic solution” to save their business. Whilst saving the business we also ensure that the directors are personally protected.

    Our Company Restructuring Service

    Most companies will face difficult financial challenges at some time. Those challenges can range from simply “underperforming” through to “insolvency”.

    Wherever your company sits in that range, working through the problems is a stressful and worrying time. As a director, you will be dealing with the pressure of not letting down employees, shareholders and creditors while dealing with unfamiliar situations and laws.

    The simplest solution is what we call Informal Restructuring – which is where we work with the directors, and some or all of your creditors, to come to a negotiated solution to return your company to financial health. This is done behind-the-scenes and avoids the use of formal appointments (such as Voluntary Administration) and the Courts.

    Why you need an expert?

    Informal Restructuring or business restructuring can be a complicated and technical area. It is very important that your solution complies with commercial practice and that the agreements and terms don’t breach the Corporations Act. And there is a lot to consider including Insolvent Trading, sale of assets at undervalue, and employment laws.

    It’s an area that is unfamiliar to most directors and so there is no substitute for experience. At Restructuring Works, each of our experts have been doing this type of work successfully for over 20 years.


    How do we help?
