For us, it’s a foot in the door. We want to be voted in as liquidator or trustee in any insolvency procedures which may arise. For this to happen, we need creditors to vote us in
Of course, this will vary from case to case. If we are voted in as liquidator or trustee, we can work to a fixed quote which means our fees will be capped and usually lower. This means more money in the pot for distributions to creditors.
We would encourage creditors to fill in Proof of Debt forms in all cases and we can help with this.
A meeting of creditors is called to inform creditors of the situation of the debtor company. A Statement of Affairs is presented, which details the debtor’s financial situation, including assets and all creditors. The meeting is also a chance for the creditors to ask questions and to appoint a Liquidator by the process of a vote.
Why would I want McAlister & Co to attend on my behalf?
McAlister & Co can attend a meeting of creditors on your behalf to save you taking time out of your day to do so. As experienced insolvency experts, we will be able to ask questions and request information which could garner valuable information and increase prospects and amounts of distribution. Are the directors of the debtor company hiding assets? Do the figures add up? Should there be a personal liability?
After attending the meeting, we will then produce a report, which we will forward on to you. A sample of this report is available to download here, and is included in the pack, which is available here.
