Big changes to strike offs

The Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill is currently making its way through parliament and, unfortunately, there are certain aspects of this proposal that are a cause for real concern.

As insolvency practitioners we are concerned, and have witnessed how the reactivation of a company that has been struck of too early has allowed fraudulent directors to act quicker, leading to higher losses for the creditors.

We would like your thoughts on this, so please click here to complete our short survey. We are looking to send our results of this survey to the government. Please respond by Tuesday 12 August.
