Patients can once again relax in the conservatory overlooking the hospice garden after a presentation from our managing director Phil Wood following another successful charity quiz night.
Insolvency is very much a business built on people - we have to provide expert knowledge and skills but often in sensitive situations, so it is important to us to invest in the people in our business.
It's also important to invest in the next generation, which is why we have recently appointed a new apprentice, Casey Matthews.

The Insolvency Service have just published official statistics to demonstrate their enforcement outcomes for the year to March 2016. They investigate the cause of company failure in every insolvency and can disqualify directors or wind up live companies if they find unfit behaviour.
Over half (54%) of insolvency practitioners believe that HMRC makes it harder to rescue businesses than wind them up, according to a survey of the insolvency profession by R3, the insolvency trade body.
On top of that, nearly three-in-four (71%) insolvency practitioners say that HMRC has made the insolvency process harder to manage in the last few years. Only 10% said HMRC was ‘helpful’ when it comes to business rescue.
Many advisers are warning that company directors need to start winding up procedures urgently if they don’t want to lose the valuable tax benefits available – but should there really be such a panic?
True – HMRC have issued anti-avoidance rules in an attempt to stop the opportunistic use of Entrepreneurs Relief and the mechanism of using an MVL to extract cash from the company, particularly if a new company is set up to replace the existing company within two years.
