The Good the Bad and the Ugly: The line between a pre-pack arrangement and phoenix activity for SMEs

Small-to-medium enterprises are the emerging market for the insolvency profession.

ARITA’s new policy calls for pre-pack arrangements (i.e. ‘pre-positioning’) to enable viable businesses to continue and maximise return for creditors. The mechanism for pre-positioning is a sale of business negotiated prior to the appointment.

The discussion for focuses on the issues for SMEs and case studies about the traps for professional advisers and insolvency practitioners.
