The Liquidation of Carillion plc and it’s subsidiary companies is likely to have a huge impact on businesses and contractors further down the supply chain.

At the time of writing, suppliers are being asked by the Special Managers to continue supplying the companies in Liquidation on the basis that they will be paid from the date of the Liquidation, namely from 15 January 2018 onwards. However, the position on debts incurred prior to that date is not yet known. Given the companies’ insolvency it is likely that there will be a large amount unpaid debts to creditors in the supply chain, which can cause cash flow issues for suppliers, contractors and, in turn, the suppliers and contractors to those businesses.
