Frost Group are extremely pleased to be working with CIMA members in practice through their Business Accountant service and sharing with you our knowledge and experience of Members Voluntary Liquidations.
We are launching an online training course on to assist CIMA accountants in preparing a lot of the statutory paperwork necessary to commence the process. Having gone through the Course, which will qualify as CPD, CIMA members in practice will be able to fully understand the process and likely benefits and pitfalls that their clients are likely to experience. An Insolvency Practitioner will still be required, but the costs associated should be materially reduced.
Jeremy Frost, Insolvency Practitioner and Managing Director of the Frost Group commented:
“Recent developments in the tax regime have caused an increase in the requirement to use Members Liquidations when considering legitimate tax mitigation measures. We believe that CIMA members in practice are better placed than most accountants to recognise and deliver the benefits that will accrue to their clients from this procedure. It makes perfect sense to train them in the process and we are delighted to be able to assist”.
“In the course of developing this course we have identified a number of other areas within the Insolvency field where CIMA members in practice might bring material cost effective benefits to Businesses in financial difficulties. It is our intention to develop our relationship with Business Accountant – CIMA Members in Practice with a view to developing a number of further relevant courses: Watch this space!!
Frost Group are corporate recovery experts, licensed insolvency practitioners and business advisors, and are now in our tenth year of trading. Our continued aim remains to develop partnerships with CIMA members in practice who can benefit from ongoing support and a modern, pragmatic and commercial approach.
