Debt Management Companies - A Solution To Insolvency

Dec 12, 2007
Insolvency is a nightmare no business owner would ever want to have. Every businessman wants the venture to grow, to expand, to succeed and ultimately to earn bigger profits. But not all business hopefuls are blessed with the good fortune to have stable, income generating business ventures. Many businesses are added to the insolvent and bankrupt statistics everyday.

Insolvency is an eventuality every entrepreneur would like to avoid at all cost. Of course there are factors that are beyond the capacity of any individual to avoid. The slump in the economy is a very hard adversary to contend with, and so are difficulties brought about by natural calamities.

A business in difficulty is akin to a patient. To cure a patient, proper diagnosis is needed so that the right medication will be prescribed. The same thing is true with business. To cure an ailing business, you need to have a careful analysis of the causes of the problems. Could it be due to mismanagement? A less than favorable cash flow? Or could it be due to unavailability of capital and funds to sustain operating costs?

All these factors that can cause insolvency of a business can be righted or cured. There are many options available to the businessman to choose from. Bankruptcy, debt consolidation, liquidation are only some of the solutions to insolvency.

Another way to circumvent insolvency is by obtaining debt relief. This is possible through a debt settlement arrangement. Debt settlement is a way by which a debtor can reduce the amount of debt by reducing the balance of the debt itself. Debt settlement negotiation or arrangement is done with the assistance of debt settlement or debt management companies. Through the negotiations and by showing proofs that the business or the company is experiencing economic difficulties, the balance of the debt may be substantially reduced. Debt settlement arrangement is much faster and cheaper than filing for bankruptcy.

Needless to say, choosing the right debt settlement or Debt Management Company is important. A debt settlement company should be able to help you ease the burden of difficulties due to huge unpaid debts. Through the negotiations that they will make, creditors can be stopped from hounding and harassing you. A debt management counselor will be able to stop court litigation that may arise from debt related disputes.

Another salient factor to be considered in choosing the right debt management company is the fee they are charging for the service rendered. Beware of debt management companies who charge their entire fees even before any settlement is made. We do understand the fact that service fees will be charged so that the company can continue to render service, but charging the entire fee will be detrimental to the finances of the debtor.

A client-friendly company will ask a portion of the fee to be paid and will stipulate that the balance will be paid after the settlement. Or a better agreement is to have a contingent fee where the fee for the debt management company will be based on the money saved by the debtor as a result of the settlement. This is both favorable to the debtor and the debt management company since the more money the settlement can negotiate the more money the debtor will save and the bigger the service fee for the debt consultant.
