Other Insolvency Claims Services

When a company goes into liquidation the insolvency practitioner is duty bound to look at your conduct as a director.

Many directors inadvertently fall foul of one or many breeches of their duties and can face a number of personal claims as a result.

The insolvency claim minefield

When operating a company that is struggling it is easy to make decisions which may cause an issue once the company is in liquidation. There are many different claims which can arise:

  • Misfeasance claims – Directors have a duty to act in the interests of the Company, and breach of that duty which results in a financial loss to the Company can give rise to a claim of misfeasance
  • Preference claims – Paying one creditor in priority to another
  • Transactions at undervalue claims – Any transaction which may be at less than market value
  • Illegal dividend claims – Dividends can only be paid out of available profits, any dividend paid without having available profits will be classed illegal
  • Overdrawn directors loan accounts – Often on advice of accountants, directors pay themselves a small salary and draw additional funds monthly in “advance dividends”.  These monies are not dividends, they are effectively a loan until a dividend can be declared
  • Other antecedent transactions – These are transactions entered into prior to insolvency which can be reversed by a Liquidator or Administrator.  The above are all antecedent transactions but there are others such as fraudulent or wrongful trading which fall under this banner as well.

There is considerable overlap between these claims. Often, in the event of court proceedings being commenced, claims will often refer to more than one of the various transactions

Its undoubtedly a mine field and in many cases claims arising from liquidation can be a real shock when issued. Specialist advice should be sought immediately. Personal Guarantees UK provide a cost effective alternative option to a specialist insolvency lawyer.
