Business Recovery

The Portland approach to Business Recovery

When a business suffers trading losses or cashflow problems, those running the business spend an increasing amount of their time fire fighting problems and less time focusing on the way out of the problem. This can escalate and lead to insolvency, if it is not addressed quickly.  

At Portland we have huge amounts of experience in helping relieve these pressures and helping to get you focused on the way out of the downward spiral.

If the problem is more than cashflow and we can’t help you through our unique Cashsolv™ services, we can still help you through our positive approach to business recovery.

We have a number of ways in which we can help you:

Our advice would be that bankruptcy is usually the last resort. There are often more appropriate means, such as an individual voluntary arrangement.
