Advice NI’s Business Debt Service Rebranding

Advice NI is rebranding its advice service to small and medium businesses following a change of funder.

The service formerly known as Business Debtline in Northern Ireland has been relaunched as Advice NI’s Business Debt Service (BDS) and is now funded by The Money Advice Service.

BDS is a free telephone based service offering tailored, independent and impartial advice for sole traders, partnerships and Limited Companies. The service provides debt advice and debt solutions for business owners experiencing financial difficulties, whatever the circumstance or situation. Our adviser ensures businesses are aware of their rights and responsibilities with regard to their trade, tax and personal liabilities.

We understand the stress of trying to remain in business and having to deal with financial problems. We can provide step-by-step support on budgeting, debt prioritisation and negotiating repayments with creditors and advise on all aspects of business insolvency issues. We're impartial, non-judgmental and most of all, we are committed to finding a realistic solution that is right for the client, their family and the business.
