I have a client who is showing signs of financial distress – how can I assist them?

If there is one thing we like to communicate to accountants and other advisors to assist their clients have the best chance of avoiding a formal insolvency appointment, it would be to make contact with us early, before it is too late and where some options are no longer viable.

If you have a client that is struggling to make ends meet, or even if the warning signs have only recently become apparent, then get in touch with us to talk about the options available to them.

You can contact our Principal, Kim Wallman, at any time on 08 9215 7900, 0411 619 256 or via email to kwallman@hlbinsol.com.au to either make an introduction or to arrange a confidential, cost free and obligation free meeting.

I have a client who is solvent, however a liquidation is required to distribute the capital and reserves in a tax effective way – do you do Members Voluntary Liquidations?

Yes we do. As you are aware, a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation is often a tax effective method of bringing the affairs of a solvent company to an end by settling the claims of creditors in full and distributing the surplus assets of the company to its members.

The Liquidator does not always physically realise assets, as they may be transferred to the members in specie as part of the distribution process.

The appointment of a Liquidator under these circumstances provides a tax effective way to distribute assets to the members of the company.

To speak with us further regrading whether a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation may be appropriate in your situation, please contact us on 08 9215 7900 for a cost and obligation free consultation.
