Financial Difficulty

The Directors' Helpline operates independently and with no obligation

It’s always worth speaking to us and hearing what we have to say. You will always be guided by a director and we are on hand at any time, 7 days a week. Often directors find our advice far more reasonable, practical and effective than maybe some of the more traditional routes in the past.

Independent and in your corner

Without advice, directors can be pressured unfairly into insolvency. Unlike insolvency practitioners, The Directors helpline will always represent you and your company, not your creditors.


We assess all the ways forward

We'll explain your company debt liabilities, accountancy solutions and restructuring options but we know your business is different to every other business. So, together, we decide how to proceed in a manner you're comfortable with.

Company Recovery Experts

It's our aim to get you and your company the best possible outcome during an uncertain time. The Directors Helpline put 100% in helping you and your company.


When a company is insolvent and enters voluntary liquidation employees that have been working for two years or more can expect to receive a statutory redundancy payment.

What most people don’t know is that company directors who can prove their status as an employee of the company (we can do this for you) may also qualify for redundancy along with other statutory payments such as holiday pay and unpaid wages.

This money is paid from the government’s National Insurance Fund and can provide a much needed financial boost at a very difficult time. Not only can it pay for the liquidation itself (often the liquidators fees can be deferred until the redundancy claim is processed) but it usually leaves a lump sum for the directors to clear any personal debts or start another business.

Unfortunately many Insolvency Practitioners are miss-identifying this legal right to potential funds. It is a complex area of employment law but given the potential sums involved we always recommend Directors check their eligibility. The Redundancy Payments Office process hundreds of claims each month and you and any fellow Directors could be eligible to claim.

Are you one of those Directors missing out? Don’t delay…we advise you to find out today whether you are eligible! Director redundancy claims can be up to £15,750 plus up to 12 weeks’ notice and 6 weeks unpaid holiday pay and it can take as little as 6 weeks to receive the funds.
