Is your business viable? Will it remain viable in future? These are fundamental questions you may need help to answer.

At Grant Thornton, our experienced team conduct thorough reviews that get to the heart of your issues – they don't just scratch the surface.

These issues might include:

  • regularly exceeding bank facility limits
  • exhausting immediate sources of funding
  • exceeding suppliers’ credit terms
  • failing to produce key accounting and trading information when required.

Our team conducts two main types of reviews which could be relevant to your operations.

1.  Independent Business Reviews

Independent reviews can be valuable where conflicts have emerged between a business and its stakeholders. Here, we carefully examine all aspects of the business and apply rigorous analysis and methodologies to produce a comprehensive and credible roadmap. We’ll also suggest strategies that can help rebuild trust and develop a robust platform for growth for your business.

You can refer to these reviews as an Investigating Accountant’s Report (IAR) – a document often required by lenders. The IAR involves a detailed review of a company’s historical and projected financial information, as well as its assumptions and material accounting policies. Our team has extensive experience in producing these reviews and delivering the information that decision makers need.

2. Strategic Performance Reviews

We also conduct strategic reviews which assess the key drivers of performance improvement.

In this process, our specialists apply a structured framework to evaluate a business’s financial and operational performance. Our goal is to interrogate this performance and develop solutions that are tailored to the business. We have a strong track record in working closely with management to develop solutions that are cost-effective and which drive change.
