Having been involved on a practical level as advisors and in business as Director / Shareholders we bring experience in many areas that traditional advisors can not.

We bring the core skills and experience that your business will benefit from, and where appropriate work with specialist Partners to really add value.

What Sort of Companies do You Work With?
We have worked with many SME’s and owner managed businesses i.e. growth companies with revenues from £1m to £50m+. However, we also work with clients undergoing change and business growth pains which need interim finance director and non executive services. We also work with companies that are experiencing financial difficulty, with much experience in this area we can review your situation and implement a turnaround plan, or if appropriate our specialist partners can provide insolvency advice.

Statutory requirements may dictate that an audit is required, that will not help you grow your business, our advice will!
