The Latest Information on Liquidation and Insolvency

With the U.S. economy in a steep nose dive, more and more companies are finding that they can no longer do business profitably and are having to choose to liquidate their assets to pay off their debts. When faced with liquidation it is important that you stay focused, so you can get through it and maintain good standing with your creditors, so they will be there for you when the economy finally turns around in a few years.

Alter it has been decided that a company is going to liquidate, the first course of action is to stop all business transactions and then hand the controls of the company over to a receiver. This can be one receiver, or it can be a group of receivers who will handle the liquidation. The first thing that the receiver is going to do is to notify all of the creditors and shareholders that the company is going through a liquidation process.

Then they will begin the process of taking inventory of all of the companies assets so that they can be converted into cash or liquid capital. The money that is generated by the selling off of a companies assets will then be used to pay off any of the outstanding debts that the company owes to its creditors.

Many people make the assumption that liquidation is always the result of a bankruptcy court proceeding but this is not always the case. Liquidation can be undertaken to avoid a bankruptcy proceeding and be a means to get the companies creditors paid off.

There are three types of liquidation process that are used and they are "members Voluntary", "creditors Voluntary", and compulsory liquidation. With members voluntary and creditors voluntary the shareholders or partners have agreed to the liquidation while compulsory liquidation is orederd by a court.
