Get to know the knock-on effects of insolvencies in your sector! 

Further to a recent article by Business Matters it is clear that many businesses are falling on hard times.  With big business failures like Toys R Us and Carillion construction group making the headlines in 2018, some businesses are only now starting to feel the effects. In the first quarter of 2018 alone there was a 20% increase in UK building firms becoming insolvent, with medium and small firms being the worst hit. Often firms will try to rebuild confidence by taking on new contracts but this frequently makes the problems worse by biting off more than they can chew – and in certain circumstances can result in directors being personally responsible for paying the resulting losses of the company.
