Whatever you are paying her, double it. She is a first class ambassador for your organisation." Robert "Just very professional with personal understanding." Wayne "Our business was faced with a difficult situation that became out of the control due to short time frames - Through TaxGone we were able to enter into an arrangement, fully resolve the dispute and protect a significant proportion of the creditor balances." Maintenance Firm - Ipswich "After being almost shafted by "BT" not the telecoms BT, it was a pleasant surprise to deal with you and your staff." Engineering Firm - Bury "The advice and service I received was excellent, and very reassuring, at a very stressful time."

Website Production Company - Leeds "Incredible people, incredible service, sometimes CVA may be your best choice."

Support Services - Birmingham "The Company Voluntary Arrangement allowed us to draw the line and start again, but with more knowledge from past experience. The banks gave me a little hassle but that was because they don't have a lot of info on what to do with a CVA client. I stuck it out and argued the case and they got there in the end. 2 months after the CVA we now have calm and carrying on with business."

Building Company - Yorkshire "Many thanks for the professional manner that our case was handled with." Electronics Store - Dorset "Excellent and prompt service provided." General Store - London "TaxGone did everything they said they would. They enabled my company to restructure its outstanding HMRC debt and allowing us to repay in a realistic time-scale at an amount that does not prevent the company from expanding, taking a great weight from my shoulders. I would recommend them to anyone in business."

Catering Company - Tipton

What is a CVA?
Three little letters could mean the difference between closing your company and expanding it.
There are many companies that are in financial difficulties that have never heard of what these three letters can do.
So what is a CVA ?
A CVA is a Company Voluntary Arrangement.
A CVA is a deal between a company and its creditors that allows debt repayment to be made out of future trading profits.
This saves the company from being wound up and doesn't saddle the company or director with more debt.
So now you know the answer to what is a CVA - perhaps you could call TaxGone on 01302 815846 and find out a little more.

There are many an insolvency definition that suits an inquirer. For a director it is probably the time at which a director has to tell his family that there is a problem at work!
This is when the booked holiday can't be paid for or the extension finished or even the mortgage can't be paid.
This is the result of an insolvency definition in action.
It is when you can't pay the bills on time and have run out of things to sell. Ouch!
If you think that your business falls into the insolvency definition category then call TaxGone on: 01302 815846 and we will see if there is enough time to put the clock back.

There are over 50 directors a day that are appointing a liquidator, you are not alone. The decision may be based on their accountant's advice or that of a friend. But there is no doubt that wherever the advice did come from, the decision was not an easy one. Appointing a liquidator is one of those very simple tasks that can have a complicated outcome for a director. There are always pieces missing out of a jigsaw and those pieces are really the bits you need in order to see the full picture. The missing jigsaw pieces are probably those that can complicate your life. One piece may be related to what the vat will do on your next company, the other may be related to a director's loan account, whilst the third missing piece may be about dividends. These are key pieces that you should have been given before appointing a liquidator. Without these missing pieces it is very likely that you will be in a worse position after appointing a liquidator than before. Appointing a liquidator is simple. Dealing with the fallout of a liquidation can be difficult. Talk to TaxGone today on: 01302 815846 and we'll take you through what a liquidation means for your situation.

Feeling trapped by your business debts can be soul destroying, a business is supposed to increase an owners net income not reduce life expectancy. However, when company debt problems arise this is often what happens. If directors become more aware of the huge benefits of Company Voluntary Arrangements, the numbers would triple in a year. Any company with a cash flow problem has the potential to be rescued by a Company Voluntary Arrangement. If your company has a viable future, but current cash flow problems have resulted in mounting pressure from creditors, then a Company Voluntary Arrangement could be just what you need. Its a low cost insolvency solution that saves businesses and as the company is not closed, the directors are not subject to a liquidator's investigation into whether they allowed the business to trade on whilst insolvent. Speak to TaxGone today about the benefits of a Company Voluntary Arrangement and if it's the right solution for your company debt problems.

Some bright spark scientists claim to have worked out what tail wagging on dogs indicates, maybe your dog has figured out your company is going into a CVA and has configured the wag accordingly, two right wags followed by an up and down movement we believe. This is quality research and we can really see a time when the "Observer book of dog wags" hits the shelves, it would be a sell out for sure and we can't wait for the Kindle version as we would really love to know what someone's pit bull is thinking before it launches it's attack on a pretty face! Following some research into the various noises made by company directors under pressure from creditors, although sometimes they are hard to decipher due to their heads being firmly embedded in the sand, we have found the following:- There is a plaintive cry as another envelope marked HMRC drops onto the mat, followed by a mournful groan as the contents are read and digested, followed by tears of joy because you decided to do something about it and you know your company is going into a CVA, and the pressure release valve is already working! So if you are contemplating going into a CVA call TaxGone as we are experts in the matter, we can teach old dogs new tricks, but only if you pull your head out of the sand and call us!
