Case Studies

Leroy was a self-employed Barrister. He had traded successfully for many years but due to raising a young family, a change in Chambers and a significant increase in book debt due to prolonged litigation, he relied heavily on the use of personal credit facilities to meet his and his family’s own personal living expenses. He was left with a number of unpaid personal debts and in particular, a large HMRC liability. After struggling for approximately a year, Leroy concluded that he had no option but to seek professional advice.


Case Studies

The company operated as an online retailer of air conditioning units, dehumidifiers, heaters, and radiators. It marketed these products for sale across a number of different websites and supplied to customers throughout the UK, and EU member states. Sales were seasonal and the volume of sales had been affected by wet summers and mild winters which meant sales were slow. The company struggled with cash flow problems and a build-up of credit plus a material debt to the bank who held a debenture that the director had guaranteed.

Case Studies

Michael and Laura took out a loan which was secured against their property. At the time it was easy to borrow more than the value of their property and this was used for general home improvements, as they had recently purchased their first home. They used credit for general living expenses and to supplement their income. They generally paid the minimum amounts due, this caused no issues for a while, however, the level of interest and charges began to accrue and they found it increasingly difficult to maintain the minimum payments.
