Insolvency law FAQs


Your company can be cash-flow insolvent, or it can be balance-sheet insolvent. There are instances in which the company can remain afloat if it is insolvent in just one aspect, but if it is insolvent in both then a court of law will need to make a decision on how best to handle the debt.

The main result of this is that many different situations are possible. There could be debt restructuring, leading to business recovery. Or in the worst instance, liquidation. And there is a process for debt repayment.

We have a few pages of FAQs, but this is a pretty complicated subject.
