We are a care home and care services provider. We got into a conflict with HMRC which meant that they presented a winding up petition against us after we had paid everything that was due to them. It so happened that it happened immediately after the UK went into lockdown as a result of the coronavirus crisis in March 2020.
Our business was all about the supply of high value agricultural equipment. We engaged Stephen and his team to apply for a Validation Order on an urgent basis. We had detailed plans worked out to restructure our wider business and in order to do this we needed a Validation Order. Stephen and his team jumped right on the case and had the case lodged within 48 hours. Less than 72 hours after instructing Stephen we had our Validation Order.
Stephen and his team were fantastic. We had a way to avoid insolvency and the petitioning creditor could be paid in full immediately. Within 12 hours of instructing Stephen we had our first court hearing. We soon had our Validation Order and the bank accounts were unfrozen.
