Businesses across all sectors and sizes will, as a result of COVID-19 challenges, be looking at making financial and operational improvements. Hazlewoods, business advisers and chartered accountants, are specialists at supporting management teams to generate liquidity and protect value.

The starting point for any business is to review or start financial cash flow modelling, which enables you to identify potential shortfalls at an early stage and to adapt your operations to suit.

Hazlewoods have created two basic financial model cash flow templates, which are available to download on their website. If you need assistance in completing the templates, or require a bespoke user-friendly financial model, tailored to meet your needs, please contact a member of the Hazlewoods team.

In addition to financial modelling, Hazlewoods business restructuring team can assist with:

Debt advisory

Hazlewoods can help identify sources of finance and advise on the optimum structure to achieve your objectives. Services include raising and refinancing debt, debt restructuring (including private equity/alternative funding sources) and cash flow management.

Restructuring

Hazlewoods work with owners, investors and creditors to protect and realise value. Services include assessing corporate viability, evaluating options to recover value, strategic planning and implementation.

Where you have a valuable property asset that may be at risk from the challenges currently being faced by your business, there are restructuring options that can be considered to split the property from the trading side of the business.

Corporate simplification

Hazlewoods can assist in simplifying group structures, eliminating surplus/dormant companies and reducing regulatory risk, cost and management time. Hazlewoods can also advise on the optimal solution to dispose of surplus group companies, whether it be by solvent liquidation or managed exit.

Business Recovery and Insolvency

Our Business Recovery and Insolvency team can help provide frank, proactive and commercial advice. We work with you to provide the best solution for all parties.
