Business Debt Solutions Brisbane

If you’re finding it difficult to deal with your business’ debts, it may be time to assess your options for help

For most businesses, particularly small businesses in Brisbane, debt is a necessary part of normal operations. However, despite the important role played by debt in making the businesses world go round, too much debt can also cause problems. It can stifle a company’s cashflow and diminish its ability to meet its financial and moral obligations. Continued difficulty in repaying debt can seriously endanger a business’ financial health and future existence.

Business owners and company directors should know exactly when their company is experiencing financial distress. The best thing you can do is take action straight away to manage what you owe before it becomes unmanageable. To do this, it’s best to seek professional advice as soon as you recognise the early warning signs of insolvency.

Business Turnaround

A business turnaround strategy is an informal option to help your Brisbane-based business return to profitability. It’s the reversal of failing results – sales and profits – through fundamental change. This includes selling assets, closing some product lines and building others, adjusting the work force, competitive repositioning, new pricing, operations improvement and refinancing. The goal of a business turnaround is to buy time to transform the business so it can regain financial stability.

Voluntary Administration

Voluntary Administration allows a company that is experiencing cashflow or solvency problems breathing space from its creditors to restructure. It is a quick process that involves the appointment of an independent administrator to decide on the best outcome for the business moving forward. Voluntary administration allows your business in Brisbane to avoid liquidation and insolvent trading.

Company Liquidation

Company liquidation is the process of winding up your business’ affairs, including the realisation of company assets, the ceasing of trade, distribution of proceeds to creditors and distributing the surplus (if there is any) to your shareholders. Company liquidation should be used as a last resort once you have considered business turnaround and Voluntary Administration, as your business will cease to exist after liquidation.

Beware of these Early Warning Signs of Insolvency

Inadequate cash reserves

It’s important to have cash reserves in place to deal with unexpected events, fund growth strategies and leverage opportunities as they arise. If there is no cash reserve, your business may be experiencing financial difficulties.

Poor cashflow management

If your business fails to manage cash flow strategically, it could lead to catastrophic events. This includes losing major customers, paying increased interest rates or correcting ineffective control systems.

Inability to access finance

Not being able to access finance from banks because it’s deemed too risky is a sure sign of insolvency.

No clear business model

If you can’t clearly articulate who your customers are, how you make money and where future growth will come from, then it’s unlikely to be well managed.
