About Us

The world of insolvency practitioners in Australia can be challenging to deal with. As a director of a potentially insolvent company, you are already dealing with enough stress as it is without further complicating matters with conflicting or unclear advice. We’re different because we work with you to first understand your situation well, and to find the ‘least drastic solution’.

    advice to small and medium size
    companies and directors of those
    companies.

    provided advice to over 3000 directors – we
    have the experience and industry
    knowledge to know the best way forward.

    icon genuine service

    In around 50% of calls we receive from
    directors, we are able to provide free advice
    over the phone that gives the director a
    specific way forward – that is we are not
    there to sell our services – we provide
    genuine advice for the situation.

    icon transparent

    If we do recommend you use our services
    we will be clear on what that will cost you –
    in most cases we’ll provide a specific fixed
    quote so you know what it will cost, what
    we will do for you and what will be the
    potential savings to a director and their
    company.
