What is a Company Administration Order?

An Administration Order is a court order that stops anyone taking legal or enforcement action against your company, whilst a way forward is agreed.

An Administration Order can be obtained very quickly, so protection from aggressive creditors helps the business and not shuts it down.

The Order has to be made by a court but even the application for the Administration Order is enough to get the legal protection to stop creditor’s actions.

How Does an Administration Work?

The key to a successful Administration is a better return to creditors and lenders. At the start, you will need to go through your company’s affairs with an insolvency specialist – such as Bridgestones – to look at all the issues you have and discuss the alternative methods of solving them.

Assuming Administration is the best route, then a court application and immediate protection is granted. This stops any legal action against your company and lets you work with the proposed Administrator to find the best route forward.

"We are specialists in giving Company Administration Order advice. Call us on 0800 014 9836 for free to discuss your company’s financial position in complete confidence."

A Company Administration must achieve one of the following:

  • Rescue the company as a going concern.
  • Achieve a better result than the company being wound-up.
  • To realise the value of the property to make a distribution to one or more secured, or preferential creditors.

We go through the alternatives and work together to get the right one.

Protecting assets that the company has on the way through, usually gets a better return and helps keep parts of the business and usually jobs as well. This in turn gets a better realisation for your creditors.

Once the Administration Order has been made, we draw up the Administrator’s proposals that go to all the company’s creditors. When the proposals have been approved, the Administration will run its course.

This could include:

  • Sale of some or all of the assets.
  • Disposal or surrender of onerous liabilities and leases.
  • Transfer of ongoing contracts.
  • Business and operational transfers to a new company.

Advantages of Administration

  1. Immediately stops action from creditors.
  2. Gives time to work out a solution.
  3. May result in the company continuing.
  4. Gives a better return to creditors.
  5. Allows some contracts to continue.
  6. Can be done very quickly.
  7. Allows jobs to be protected.

Company Administration Case Studies

Case Study 1

A north-west construction company got into financial difficulties as a result of a contract overrunning and concluded it was unable to complete the contract.

An Administration Order was obtained quickly to stop mounting creditor pressure, whilst the site was marketed and sold on for a far higher price than would have been achieved if the company had been forced into Liquidation and the site had been abandoned.

Case Study 2

A private debenture holder appointed an Administrator over a failing technology company to realise the company’s property and buildings to recover their outstanding investment.

An Administration Order allowed a more orderly disposal and gave greater protection to the debenture holder, than if the company had gone into Liquidation.
