Debt arrangement

With the help of a debt arrangement scheme, you can rehabilitate your company’s finances. You should select the arrangement method in accordance with your company's form of business and the extent of its financial difficulties. A payment plan, corporate reorganisation and accelerated reorganisation proceedings can be used by all enterprises. A debt arrangement for a private person, on the other hand, may only be used by a private trader.
