If an official receiver have been called in to your business, it is essential to act fast. Here is how TaxDebts can step in to help.

How to Handle Official Receivers

The official receiver is staffed by government employees who are tasked, on behalf of the Crown, with recouping as much money as possible from a business that has been liquidated. They will aggressively target the company director and conduct an investigation with the aim of lifting the veil of a limited company – giving them the opportunity to recoup money from the director themselves.

We understand this will be an incredibly stressful time. However, it is essential that you take immediate action. If you do not, then you risk becoming personally liable for all your company’s debts.

When dealing with an official receiver, obtaining the right support is critical. You need expert advice from somebody you can rely upon to have your best interests at heart. 

This is where TaxDebts can help. We have decades of experience in dealing with the official receivers and assisting our clients in getting the best possible result for them.

Our Approach

Create a Barrier

If you are dealing with an official receiver, you have effectively lost control of your business. In addition, you are facing the real possibility of losing your personal assets as well. TaxDebts understands this will be an incredibly difficult time and you will be under a lot of stress. This is why we will step in and handle the case on your behalf, giving you some well-needed breathing space. We will take over the negotiations and work to obtain the best possible outcome for you.


Treat You as a Person

Throughout the winding up and liquidation process, you may feel that you have been treated as a faceless entity and not as a human being. TaxDebts knows there is a person at the centre of every business and will always treat you as an individual. We are committed to supporting you throughout the process and will endeavour to put your personal needs ahead of those of your business. With us, you can rest easy knowing you have somebody who has your best interests at heart.

Tailor-Made Support

We understand that there is no set approach when dealing with an official receiver. Each situation is unique and demands a bespoke resolution. This is why TaxDebts will conduct a thorough investigation and recommend a course of action that we believe is best for your business. If we do feel that liquidation is the only option, we will work to have your case resolved for a fixed fee and agree set parameters with the official receivers that are in your best interests – not theirs.
