Financial Restructuring (Corporate and Individual)

Life may go up and down, so is business and personal finance. In particular, in the era of financial tsunami or turmoil, business or individual may face with low tide and dire strait financially. During such situation, someone may choose to wind-up the business or go for personal bankruptcy. This is not necessarily the only way to go for. The other alternative is a debt restructuring, in case of limited company by way of re-financing and cash-flow management or scheme of arrangement; or in case of an individual by way of individual voluntary arrangement.

Insofar as individual is concerned, before you decide go bankrupt (which may have profound implication and bearing on and in your personal future life), we could assist you in conducting a thorough personal finance analysis. There are two options:

  • Debt Restructuring Plan (DRP)
  • Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA)

Debt Restructuring Plan is to negotiate a scheme of debt restructuring with individual creditors. The procedure of this arrangement is simpler than IVA which requires court order; therefore, DRP relatively saves in time and cost. However, the success of the arrangement very much depends on the individual creditor and the preferred number of creditors is below 5.

We could also act as your nominee for the implementation of your individual voluntary arrangement.
