Our Services

Insolvency Services

We provide a full range of insolvency services to company directors and have worked with business owners across a broad range of business sectors. We will take time to understand your individual business and work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.

Insolvency procedures always sound very negative; however, they can be used to rescue a business that is struggling financially. Only if a positive solution cannot be found will the business need to be wound up. Only licensed Insolvency Practitioners can provide these services.

Business Rescue and Turnaround

The secret to effecting a successful rescue and turnaround of any company, is first recognising that it has some issues and secondly contacting us as soon as you are aware of these, in order to allow the time to review in detail all of the current and likely future issues, and to consider all options for a successful rescue and turnaround.

We are vastly experienced in business rescue and turnaround assignments and we do ourselves, running our own business, totally understand the pressures directors can face.

Pre Pack Administration & Company Administration

The company administration process is now fairly well known as one of the most effective ways of allowing a company to either trade out of its current financial difficulties, or to allow some kind of restructuring. The legislation is fairly complex, although here at McLenan Corporate Solutions Limited we are extremely experienced in both the basic administration process and also that of the pre-pack administration process. We are licensed to handle pre pack administrations and can provide your board of directors with professional advice and determine whether a pre-packed sale is appropriate. We work alongside a number of banks and other financial institutions and are well connected therefore in helping you through this process.

Company Voluntary Arrangements

Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) is an agreement between a company and its creditors, to freeze the existing debt, to allow the company to continue trading and to make contributions over a period of time into a pot for all creditors. At the end of the agreed period, the Insolvency Practitioner (known as the Supervisor) will then pay the agreed dividend to the creditors. The Supervisor will then issue a certificate of satisfaction and the company is then free of its obligations under the CVA.


Liquidation is perhaps the most common form of insolvency procedure. Effectively there are three types of liquidation:

  • Members’ voluntary liquidation – this process is used for solvent companies and is often used as a method of distributing capital in a tax efficient manner
  • Creditors’ voluntary liquidation – the most common type of insolvency, effectively used where a company ceases to trade due to its liabilities being considerably greater than its assets.
  • Court liquidation – where a company is wound up through the courts – usually following a winding up petition issued by HMRC or a creditor.

Personal Insolvency

If you are struggling with unsecured debt and are unable to pay back what you owe, then personal insolvency may be an option available to you. McLenan Corporate Solutions Limited offer two personal insolvency solutions – a protected Trust Deed and Sequestration. While these solutions have subtle differences, there are some similarities between them in that:

  • You only pay back what you can afford
  • You will be protected against creditor action
  • When you have successfully completed a Sequestration or a Trust Deed, the remaining debt will be written off
