Business Restructuring and Recovery

“Your business is constantly changing.  Throughout its life cycle your business will go through various stages which shall, to varying degrees, require the business to restructure or re-organise itself.  This can be for numerous reasons.  For example, it might arise to allow you to strategically best position the business to focus upon and develop existing or new markets and/or opportunities, or to re-brand or to deal with particular challenges from competitors..  Or it might be through a desire to streamline operations to make the business more flexible, efficient and easier to administer so it can continue to grow.  In challenging economic climates and operating environments businesses may face challenges to their stability or success. Business restructuring might be desirable cut costs, to deal with cash flow, debt or creditor pressures  That might extend in to implementing strategies to protect core and viable businesses, assets and reputation and/or to ring-fence risks and unprofitable work areas.  To achieve the best outcome a restructuring might even involve utilising one or more of the available insolvency strategies.
