Commercial Finance

BTG Commercial Finance offers a national brokerage offering independent advice on a wide range of financial solutions to clients.

The brokerage advises businesses on all types of funding issues and given the flexibility asset based lending products bring we are frequently introducing businesses to the invoice finance market. As such a good working knowledge of asset based lenders and the criteria they apply to new business can be found. Consequently our experienced invoice finance professionals can quickly and effectively provide assistance whether by easing the sales process or helping move a client away.

We have assisted many companies/businesses tailoring financial solutions to suit their needs through very strong relationships with all major lenders.

When We Can Help

There are many situations where we can add value, including:

  • When a business is underperforming or not maximising its potential
  • When stakeholders are seeking to realise value by way of an exit or disposal
  • When management need assistance to stabilise a business to enable a preliminary action plan to be drafted
  • When stakeholders are seeking to prepare robust operational plans and financial forecasts to underpin a restructuring exercise
  • When a business is seeking to generate, maintain or raise sufficient cash to support ongoing trading levels
  • When a business needs assistance to manage its funding relationships

Corporate Insolvency

Sometimes circumstances dictate that restructuring simply is not a viable option for a distressed company: cash-flow pressures may have become unmanageable or it may be too late to put into effect any restructuring strategies. There may be any number of other reasons why a formal insolvency procedure may be the appropriate option.

Where we do recommend formal insolvency proceedings, we will fully explain the range of possible options – outlining which we think is right for you and your client.

When We Can Help

Our team of insolvency specialists will review your client’s business and put forward their expert opinion on which option is right for you and that business. These include:

Appropriate international insolvency procedures permitted by local law.

Forensic Accounting

Our forensic accountants have technical skills enhanced by a wealth of practical expertise, aimed at providing robust opinion and advice. We pride ourselves on cutting through to the financial heart of the matter, providing jargon-free reports that set out our findings clearly and concisely, to assist you and the court.

Our team is led by a group of dedicated partners and senior managers who are all specialists with significant forensic accounting expertise, all of whom have substantial expert witness experience within a courtroom environment.

Red Flag Alert

Red Flag Alert is an acclaimed credit monitoring system, developed by Begbies Traynor Group, which reports significant and critical actions against thousands of companies in the UK. This fully automated system allows you to monitor the financial health of your clients and suppliers.

The system generates an email alert when a significant or critical action takes place in relation to a specific company and provides details on the company and the action that has occurred.
