When you’re working 24 / 7 to drive growth, it is not always easy to get a comprehensive picture as to your business’ true financial situation — and where it’s headed. If you start noticing that your business is in a cash crunch or your gross margins are slightly lower than what they used to be, staying ahead of the game and meeting with a professional advisor will allow you to gain a better perspective into the various key considerations in your organization’s performance and needs and to implement early intervention with the objective of getting your business back on track. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Unfortunately, all too often, organizations wait until the last minute to identify the fact that they need a recovery plan when they are on the verge of financial ruin. Last minute triggers can include, demanding letters from financial institutions, creditors seizing accounts and facing lawsuits or being unable to pay the necessary government installments.

If your business is facing challenges, regardless of your interpretation of where you are with signs and symptoms, the time to act is now. You should contact a corporate recovery and restructuring professional at MNP and put yourself on a track to regain financial health.

Is your business experiencing any of the following? Cash flow is stressed. Margins are declining. Demand letters from creditors. Creditors are seizing accounts. Remittances to the federal and provincial authorities are falling behind. Lawsuits against the business have been filed. Competitors are using your difficulties to advance themselves with your customers. Key employees are leaving.

If you can check off even one of these boxes, seeking the advice of a corporate recovery and restructuring professional as soon as possible can make all the difference in getting back on track to financial health. In this insightful video, Sheri Aberback, a Licensed Insolvency Trustee and Corporate Recovery and Restructuring Professional goes into greater detail about how to recognize the signs of a struggling business and why early intervention is the best approach.
