NEW – Debt Sanitizer

One of the possible scenarios for a business in the post-COVID-19 period is insolvency. No matter how gloomy this notion may seem to entrepreneurs, we assure you that now it will be present more than ever in the economic reality. However, you must keep in mind that the risk of launching insolvency proceedings either with respect to your business or with respect to a contractual partner of yours (be it your debtor or your creditor) does not necessarily mean the imminence of bankruptcy. As you probably already know, these two notions are different and we can help you understand them better.

What are the first steps in order to be prepared for what is to come? We expect, as we mentioned, a big wave of insolvencies, payment incapability, renegotiation of contracts and reduction of amounts collected from contractual partners.

To help you limit the negative impact on your business, we have developed a new product specially prepared for the situations we anticipate – Debt Sanitizer  🧴 – a package of measures that can keep you away from the risks of your own insolvency or the insolvency of your contractual partners.
