Our services

We are Chartered Accountants ourselves but we don’t compete with you on accounts preparation, audit or tax services. Rather we look to work alongside you to achieve a positive outcome in often difficult circumstances. The bulk of our work comes from referrals by accountants and it’s our most important source of work, involving companies of all sizes. We have strong relationships with many accounting firms across the South East and so understand your priorities.

We are used to working with other firms of accountants all the time.  Accountants are our best work referrers and we do all we can to align our work with your needs and objectives. 

The services we offer are:

  • Free advice line.
  • We refer preparation of management accounts, financial forecasts and tax work when we can.
  • 9 times out of 10 the directors are in the best position to buy the company’s assets back from a liquidation and that makes a ready made/continuing stronger client for you.
  • We can help raise finance from lenders that specialise in distressed business lending.
  • Most of all we work tirelessly to give you client the best advice for their specific circumstances.

A word of caution. Not all insolvency practitioners are equal. Choose your insolvency practitioner carefully so you can be sure that no stones are left unturned to avoid an insolvency altogether and if that is not possible then to handle the case to get the best outcome for creditors.  Contact a member of our senior team for more information.
