When are creditors paid?

When a company or person is going through a financially difficult time common questions which occur are who will get paid and when? Many people often have a vested interest in a company and there is a very clear order in which they will appear in the order of payment. While this is sometimes frustrating it is a legal requirement and cannot be changed. In this video Gary Pettit, one of our directors and a licensed insolvency practitioner here at PBC, takes you through the basics of what will happen and who will be paid at what point in the process. He will also look briefly at the different ramifications of areas such partnerships and limited companies. As always the advice is to contact us if you feel we can help but this video should clear up some of the more regular questions we hear about payment before, during and after insolvency procedures.
