What is a Company Administration?

When a company is insolvent and facing serious threats from creditors it may enter into administration. Licensed insolvency practitioners are appointed by either the company, the directors, or a third party, or by a direct application to the court. During this process, the company is protected from creditor action.

Facts About Company Administration

Administration is a process available to insolvent companies to provide protection from its creditors.

It involves a licensed insolvency practitioner (IP) being appointed to take control of the company and look into its financial situation.

Administration provides the IP with breathing space to formulate a plan outlining how to restructure or sell the company and its assets.

Protection from creditors is particularly useful and necessary in a situation where a company is being proactively or aggressively pursued for debt repayment.

A common reason for a company to enter administration is if creditors are threatening, or have issued a winding-up petition.

Once placed into administration, under paragraph 3 (1) of Schedule B1 of the Insolvency Act 1986, the administrator of a company must carry out their duties.
