Insolvency and restructuring

Thousands of companies become insolvent each year due to a range of factors that can lead to trading issues. In fact, it is estimated that almost 5,000 companies became insolvent in Australia in FY22.

Insolvency and restructuring can be complex, involving stringent regulatory considerations, competing stakeholder interests, and often operational and financial impacts.

Corporate financial distress and insolvency

Economic headwinds, unexpected downturns, personal trauma, or cash flow issues are dynamic events that can trigger or heighten the risk of insolvency for businesses.

While they can disrupt the working capital available to your business, trading issues and insolvency indicators like these are accumulative and typically occur over time, which means they are often identifiable and can be remedied.
