Our Services

We provide a diverse range of services to businesses and individuals at various stages of growth, stability and decline.

These services can be project specific, short or long term. We only engage when we can add value.

A brief discussion or meeting is all that is needed to identify opportunities to add value to you or your business.

An initial meeting/consultation is always free of charge.

A formal engagement letter is issued to all clients, which specifically details costs and the services provided. It is important to our clients and us at the outset of any engagement that there is no ambiguity of what is to be delivered and at what cost.

We are keen to emphasise, indeed advertise, that as well as being a qualified accountant, Kevin Brown is a licensed insolvency practitioner and has extensive experience in dealing with distressed businesses. The expertise gained in working in this field is a powerful resource to start up, growing and established businesses that are not distressed


We are keen to elaborate to potential clients that we are aware that formal insolvency processes are damaging to all stakeholders. Advice will only be provided to enter into a formal insolvency process if it is the most appropriate course of action. This method of working differs to some of the common held perceptions that clients have of an insolvency practitioner.

If we do not believe we can add value, we will not engage. We can still assist, however, by providing contact details of an appropriate individual/organisation. We have long standing relationships with:

  •  All tiers of the lending market, from high street lenders to bespoke funding providers

  •  Professional advisers - solicitors, other accountants providing specific expertise

  •  Other business owners and high net worth individuals
