Business or company rescue can take any number of forms, but overall the meaning of company rescue or business recovery is to bring about a business turnaround in order to avoid a formal insolvency process.

The importance of a good business recovery strategy

Company rescue is always more successful if the business looking for a business recovery has set itself a business recovery strategy to follow.

  • a business recovery strategy may involve a formal procedure, but this does not necessarily have to be a formal insolvency procedure;
  • for example, company rescue can involve a company in a business turnaround entering into a company voluntary arrangement with its creditors which will allow some breathing space for the company to repay its debts and look at a full business turnaround with the idea of a company rescue.

A voluntary arrangement takes the pressure off a business restructuring and is more conducive to company rescue.
