How can we help?

Advisory Services

Acting fast and getting the right advice can prevent a problem from becoming a crisis. Our advisory services focus on quickly assessing a company’s financial position and identifying pragmatic options to deal with the pressure points.

Our experience in dealing with creditors – whether suppliers, lenders or HMRC – shows that how you communicate and engage with them is critical to the outcome. We’ll help you to prepare and present robust information to stakeholders and support you in negotiations to achieve the best possible outcome.

Restructuring & Insolvency

Occasionally financial problems can become so severe that a formal insolvency process is needed to give a business breathing space or to enable an orderly wind-down to be carried out.

We know that contemplating a formal insolvency procedure is stressful, and the range of options can be confusing. We will guide you through the various options and ensure you choose the right process to achieve the best outcome from a difficult situation.

Fraud & Forensic

Fraud is an ever-present risk that costs UK businesses hundreds of billions. It’s a problem that is expected to increase significantly because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our skilled Fraud and Forensic team can assist and support you in addressing Fraud or help you to prevent, detect and protect against fraudulent activity.

Credit Unions

PKF GM has been providing services to the Credit Union industry for over five years. In that period we have assisted 15   Credit Unions with their wind down plans.

We have a team dedicated to Credit Union assignments and have the ability to draw on other resources across our wider firm and the services of specialist consultants, selected from previous assignments, to assist with the wind down plan should there be a need.
