Protecting your business from financial distress
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many SMEs to consider restructuring their business model to respond to changes in the marketplace, increased or reduced product or service demand and the rise of new ways of working.
In the business world, a restructure can refer to the financial and operational measures undertaken to protect the business, manage or avoid financial distress and ensure long term resilience.
