The Pre-Pack Administration Process 

Stage 1: Initial company administration advice meeting (free)
company administration meeting

Timeline: Same day
Set up for either the same day for an ‘online meeting’, or a face to face meeting at a time and place to suit you. We’ll need at least one of the company’s directors there to explain the financial situation, after which we’ll give you an initial outline of various options available. We’ll leave you with a list of further information to get together.

Stage 2: Review information & advice (free)
Review information advice

Timeline: usually 1-14 days
We review all the information and advise you on all the available options (not just administration). We’ll provide you with a fee quote and our terms of business for review. We talk about how to deal with any company assets (and whether you wish to purchase them), along with any other matters specific to your company, such as leases, personal guarantees or contracts.

Stage 3: Instruction and arranging the board meeting
Instruction arranging board meeting

Timeline: usually 1-3 days
If you would like to go ahead, and you have agreed to our terms, you formally instruct us to assist in placing the company into administration. We will arrange a board meeting to take place to arrange the requisite authorities to allow a designated board member to sign the administration documents.

Stage 4: Notice of intention to appoint an administrator
Notice of intention to appoint an administrator

Timeline: 5 business days
If the company has a qualifying floating charge holder registered at Companies House, advance notice of the administration must be given to them. The designated board member will need to visit their solicitor to provide a statutory declaration on the document. We will then arrange for this to be filed in court and served on any charge holder.

Stage 5: Appointment of an administrator
Notice of intention to appoint an administrator

Timeline: Immediate
Once the notice period has expired or if the charge holder has consented the notice of appointment can be prepared and filed in court. Again we will prepare this document where the designated member will need to visit their solicitor for a further statutory declaration. We will again arrange for the document to be filed in court. Once this is done the company is officially in administration.

Stage 6: Statement of affairs
Statement of affairs

Timeline: 11 business days
Once the company is in administration, the administrator will require you to provide a statement of affairs, detailing the company’s assets and liabilities. This is something you can often prepare with the assistance of your accountant. In order to assist the process, we can liaise directly with your accountant in relation to the requirements of the statement. Once it is completed you will need to sign off on its contents and we will then provide a copy to companies house and creditors.

Stage 7: Post liquidation assistance & closure
Post liquidation assistance

Timeline: usually 9-12 month
We work with you to ensure that the company’s books and records are moved to the administrator’s office and that all assets are properly realised. Each director is required to complete a questionnaire and once we are happy that there are no outstanding matters, we will either apply for the dissolution of the company or move into liquidation to allow for a distribution to unsecured creditors. Either way the administration will come to an automatic end after a year.
