How much will I have to pay an Insolvency Practitioner?

How much will I have to pay an Insolvency Practitioner? When money is a concern many business owners ask this question. It is very rare that a company will need to use an Insolvency Practitioner more than once, unless they are very unlucky, so understanding the way Insolvency Practitioners work can be a strange process.

To wind down a company or start insolvency proceedings you need to speak to an insolvency practitioner. It may be hard to find an IP that is recommended due to the unique services they offer. However, your accountant may work regularly with a trusted insolvency practitioner and can refer them to you. Without experience or common referrals, it can be hard to know what to expect from an IP. One of the biggest worries people have about Insolvency Practitioners are the fees. When you are already concerned about money, you do not want to be spending a lot of money to close your business.

At Lines Henry we start our Liquidation Fees from £2,500 this is a reasonable price, not as expensive as many but a good value cost to get the outcome you want and need. Some insolvency practitioners can charge up to double this amount.
