We do this by providing insight into the problems and by offering tailor-made solutions. As a result, we have already assisted almost 37.000 entrepreneurs. By calling in Zuidweg Schuldhulp, a financially healthy future is once again within reach.
How do I know I need debt counseling?
When you recognize one or more of the situations below, it is important that you take immediate action.
You have business debts that you can no longer pay
You are in arrears with the payment of your private fixed costs, such as rent or health insurance
You have other unpaid private bills
Your accounting is not in order and you have no money to realize this in the short term
Your tax returns were not filed on time and you have received ex officio assessments.
Debts are a heavy burden. Dealing with bailiffs and collection agencies costs a lot of time and energy and is at the expense of your strength and focus. This allows you to focus less on your business and improve your financial situation. By engaging Zuidweg Schuldhulp, you break through this vicious circle. You can relax and focus on the things you are good at.
With Zuidweg Schuldhulp you have an independent and impartial mediator with the aim of achieving the best possible result for all involved.
If you request debt counseling, you don't have to bankruptcy to request. The consequences of bankruptcy are often detrimental because there are no means to pay your creditors. You can be liable for your debts for 20 years.
At the end of our collaboration, you have created the optimal situation for a financially healthy future.
How does debt counseling work at Zuidweg & Partners?
Step 1: Everything starts with a personal conversation. We are happy to welcome you at our office or other intake location. During this conversation you can explain your situation to us and we will try to get a clear picture of the problems you are dealing with. At the end of this conversation we will give you direct advice with concrete solutions.
The interview will take place within two weeks after registration. If there is a crisis situation, such as the impending eviction or closure of water or energy, the conversation will take place within three days.
Step 2: We ensure that the chance of resolving the debts is as high as possible. This means that we take care of communication with your creditors so that you can take a breather. We also look with you at the possibilities to increase your income and reduce your costs. Sometimes the bookkeeping still needs to be put in order. If this is no longer possible with your own bookkeeper or accountant, our Zuidweg Help With Bookkeeping may be helpful. As an entrepreneur you often have to deal with legal problems. We are also happy to assist you with this.
Step 3: We request deferral from your creditors and check the amount and legal status of the debts.
Step 4: We work with you to calculate what you can pay to your creditors in the next three years if you stop your business and the next five years if you can continue your business. We will then talk to your creditors and offer the restructuring proposal and negotiate an agreement.
The costs for our guidance are often reimbursed by municipalities. We now work with more than 150 municipalities in the Netherlands. There is therefore a good chance that you live in a municipality that reimburses the costs for you. If you live in a municipality with which we do not yet have a partnership, we will look for a solution together with you.
Debt counseling for employees
For all kinds of reasons, a good and reliable employee can get into financial trouble. Often there are private circumstances such as a divorce or difficulties in the sale of a house, but a too high standard of living or sloppy financial administration can also be the cause. Suddenly you are confronted with wages, requests for an advance on the salary, reduced productivity and so on. It affects your company unnoticed.
Zuidweg & Partners mediates in debt problems of entrepreneurs and employees. As an independent mediator, we try to limit the damage for all involved and find a (financially) feasible solution to the problems. Are you willing to support your employee? Then refer the person to our debt counselors and experience for yourself that your employee performs better without money worries.
