Business Advice: Stuart Hopewell, Pre Pack Pool

However, it is important to answer two fundamental questions to best understand and make use of this process:

Why is a prepack necessary?

Many businesses are under pressure, from the ongoing after-effects of lockdowns, interest rate hikes and everything in between. A full explanation of what occurred to bring about the imminent failure of the business is an essential part of the application.

What will be different going forward?

Business failure can be down to circumstances well beyond your control, such as major client closure, slow inbound payments, or sudden interest rate hikes. By addressing these issues and making changes, the chances of ongoing success are materially increased. In this regard, a Viability Statement, a key component of a prepack application, should include a plan of action, a budget, and a cashflow forecast for the ‘new’ business.
