Business Recovery Incentives

Who can help you refinance your business?
Are there state incentives to recover companies?

The recovery of companies encompasses all aspects inherent to the restructuring of a business, when the company’s liabilities start to be higher than the assets. There, the risks of defaulting on their obligations start to be high, hence the need to redefine strategies and seek incentives for the recovery of companies.

Support & incentives for business recovery


It is possible to establish the necessary time for redirecting the business, as well as for the development of goals aimed at the company’s sustainability. There are several mechanisms available in national legislation for the recovery of companies, and it is through the adoption of the most appropriate tools for the type of business that a business will be allowed to survive.

Support for company recovery

Using both the judicial and extra-judicial channels, there are several methods that allow the recovery of companies, with the Recovery Plan provided for in the Code of Insolvency and Company Recovery. Thus, it is imperative to know all the support available in current legislation, so that these supports help to revitalize the business.

These incentives to recover the company are the foundation for the company’s restructuring and recovery processes.
Insolvency in a business is a natural risk in all businesses, so as far in advance as possible it is necessary to draw up contingency plans. When the financial situation gets complicated, any company can resort to insolvency as a payment suspension mechanism, for a period of time, in order to allow the company to have a deadline to restructure the business, resorting to incentives to recover the company.
