Our Insolvency Lawyers (IL) and Certified Accountants (CA) will undertake the setting up and management of any unsecured debts under the PDP, if that is the best option. PDP is a program supervised by the IL and CA, in which all the unsecured loans are evaluated, by undertaking a full “financial health audit” on all the unsecured loan accounts.

A “financial health audit” is a process whereby all the unsecured loan agreements are analyzed to ensure that the creditors followed all the RBI guidelines prior to sanctioning the unsecured loans, including “irresponsible lending” and also that the interest was applied as per the terms and conditions of the loan agreement.

If it is discovered that the creditors had not followed the RBI guidelines or there is irresponsible lending or the interest not correctly applied, then our IL will look at requesting writing off the interest and charges. IL will also investigate the possibility of converting a high interest loan like a pay day loan or a credit card debt into a low interest term personal loan or a secured loan.

We also provide Insolvency services as under the Insolvency Law which governs aspects of financial debt. Insolvency occurs when a company is no longer able to pay the debt due. The two main types are that of the inability to pay the debt when due and are thus related to cash flow problems and balance sheet insolvencies when the liabilities of a company far exceed the assets.

According to Insolvency Law, a company that has illiquid assets and thus a positive balance sheet, but is unable to pay the short term debts is thus in a cash flow insolvency state. When a company’s assets fall into a negative state where the liabilities become more than the assets, the company can still have enough cash flow for day to day running, but not to pay off the long term debt.

With the numerous insolvencies that have occurred over the past few years, the focus has shifted from liquidation of assets to assistance of businesses in financial trouble. The reason is simple. Not only the business, but its suppliers, clients, shareholders, and employees are all affected. To minimize the effect is better and as such debt restructuring steps can be taken to help rehabilitate a company. Single Debt can assist your business with all the Insolvency Law needs.
