The following are the pros and cons of entering into company administration in the UK:
If the charge is held on a debenture that was granted before that date then they would be able to put your company into administrative receivership. Keep in mind that even if the directors of your company are the ones who initiate the administration it is possible for the bank, or another holder of a floating charge, to appoint their own administrator at their discretion.
If you’re concerned that a hostile creditor may try to petition your company to court, an administration could provide the protection needed to recover without being served payment demands or facing compulsory liquidation.
The administrator must submit their proposals to creditors within 8 weeks of the commencement of administration. After submitting their proposals and having them approved the administrator can take up to several months to carry out the administration as planned. Overall, an administration is supposed to last no longer than 1 year, but this time limit can be extended by the Court, or through the consent of the company's creditors. It can take 1-2 weeks to organise a pre pack administration.
