Who We Help

Business Owners & Sole Traders

Increase business resilience with the insights needed as things continue to change.

Here to help all business models and structures in all industries and locations, bar none.

Saying it’s been a hard two years for business owners is beyond an understatement. There's never been a time like now, to have someone in your corner an advisor who provides clarity amongst the murkiness of insolvency, stress and indecision.

How we can help

Positive options start with a conversation

We’re experts at insolvency and restructuring and take pride in impartially leading our customers through their stressful journey. Before being appointed, we always provide a clear picture of what options a business may have. Where appropriate, we help turn around a business with a deteriorating or difficult financial position.

Many times our conversations end with reassurance, a clear path forward, and stress relief.

Early intervention matters

Knowing when to make the call for help

Business owners are a tough breed and independent by nature, so that makes it difficult when deciding you might need a helping hand to change your situation.

There’s some critical signs that you should look out for.

  • 5. The stress creeps into your personal life

But directors have various duties and are personally liable for certain debts. Go to our knowledge base to learn more.

Yes, in January 2020, insolvency laws changed for the better.

The ongoing COVID-19 economic environment is both tough and confusing for many businesses and the government made changes to allow your company to restructure debt more easily to weather the storm (and stay in control of your company). If things are too tough and you need to close, the new legislation changes make it more straight forward for businesses to wind up, with less costs.
