Working with us

We all face challenges. It’s how you deal with them that matters.

The journey towards a broken business or entity is an exhausting path, one that can be charged with emotion and disappointment and we understand the bonds formed between the client and the business advisor can run deep with history. When you come to Worrells, we’ll respect this relationship and take care of the people involved, in parallel with dispensing expert turnaround and insolvency advice.

How we can support you:

  • Unpack client situations with you, together with your client, or directly with your client

  • Show how to future-proof and add value to your client relationships

  • Be knowledge sharers to remove the mess of stress from stigma or misconceptions

Experts with empathy

Our people know how to turn a business around and straighten out a deteriorating personal financial situation. They understand insolvency at the deepest level and are always keen to find the right answers. Importantly, our people have the care factor for those affected by the insolvency situation. This encompasses creditors and their position; if we detect wrongdoing by the failed entity, we’ll make sure we do our best to help right those wrongs that both the insolvency framework and commerciality allows.

Right problems at the right time

Solving the right problems at the right time can be the difference between a business surviving or failing. Likewise, it can be the difference between debts being recoverable or written off. Our people can identify the right action plan for each unique situation, helping businesses and individuals to pivot out of difficult times where possible, or manage the insolvency circumstances effectively for debtors and creditors alike.

Leveraging proprietary tech

We invest in purpose-built, insolvency-tech to speed up delivery and open up good communication with creditors. We constantly look for new ways to apply tech in our business, helping us become more efficient and deliver better outcomes to all parties.

Local team, national support

Our strength is augmented through the resources of a national brand, enabling us to take on large matters with confidence. At the same time, we’re accessible both in the major cities and regional areas, providing local knowledge and local experience.

Case Study

Voluntary administration sews up failing but thriving embroidery business

A small suburban, family-run warehouse churned through hundreds of embroidery orders for wholesalers, local sporting clubs, and schools. The heat was on as staff and machines are working overtime to meet demand. Passer-bys would not be wrong to assume this business is thriving.

However, the director was dealing with the news that the ATO refused a last-ditch payment arrangement and is continuing with its application to wind up the company. 

The situation appeared bleak with the company hanging by a thread, but we were optimistic—for several reasons.

Results

Insolvency process halts

Company winding-up hearing is discontinued

One-month turnaround

Creditors accept Deed of Company Arrangement & director regained control

When we can help

Knowing when to make the call for help

Business owners are a tough breed and independent by nature, so that makes it difficult when deciding you might need a helping hand to change your situation.

There’s some critical signs that you should look out for.

Common situations we can help with

  • Falling behind on payments due to cash-flow blockages
  • Non-urgent creditors not being paid on time e.g. superannuation
  • Stressed relationships with key suppliers
  • Overdue creditors—landlords, trade creditors
  • Juggling issues with the ATO
  • Falling behind on payments and lodgements of tax obligations
  • More reliant on credit facilities e.g. overdraft
  • The stress creeps into your personal life

Early intervention matters

The sooner you seek options, the more you’ll have.
