One feature is common to all – the obligation not to continue trading if a company is insolvent. Again, the detailed implications of doing so vary from one jurisdiction to another.

We have produced a consolidated guide setting out what those duties are and how they change if a business is insolvent or at risk of becoming so.  The guide also highlights the personal risks a director can face and sets out steps to help mitigate those.
