We have a number of guides across the whole partnership insolvency spectrum to help shed some light on your individual situation:
If you’re a partner in a limited liability partnership (LLP) and want to understand more about potential options when faced with LLP insolvency, read on. If your LLP runs into financial difficulties and you depend on your business for your livelihood, you personal finances could also suffer.
This guide focuses on limited liability partnerships facing growing levels of debt with no hope of repayment now or in the foreseeable future. When this is the case, the partners may agree it is time to wrap up business affairs and simply dissolve the partnership. The guide also looks specifically at whether all partners are equally responsible for debt.
There are different types of liquidation for limited liability partnerships; in this guide we talk you through the most common types such as Creditors Voluntary Liquidation (CVL), Members Voluntary Liquidation (MVL) and Compulsory Liquidation. If you’ve been served a winding-up petition, you have no time to waste.
In this guide, we’ll explain what is meant by limited liability partnership administration and pre-pack administration. We’ll highlight how the process works and the key benefits involved. It is a common method for firms who have a viable long-term business and Real Business Rescue have been involved in hundreds of administrations, making us perfectly placed to advise in your circumstances.
When a struggling LLP still appears to be a viable business with the prospect of becoming profitable again, and the partners are willing to continue trading, a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) may be an ideal way to protect against legal actions taken by creditors. It’s critical to note that a Partnership Voluntary Arrangement (PVA) is purely an option for standard partnerships, not LLPs, and is a completely different legal process.
In this guide, we’ll explain what the winding-up of a limited liability partnership (LLP) really means; detailing how the process works and the options available to you. When it come to LLP debts, winding up and dissolution of limited liability partnership is seen as the ‘final straw’ and is often a move instigated by angry creditors – usually HMRC.
If your business is a limited liability partnership, LLP members enjoy limited liability unlike partners in general partnerships who are jointly and severally liable for all the debts and obligations of the firm. If you are a partner in a standard business partnership, the issue of joint and several liability is more pertinent.
