Our Client

A successful UK family-owned haulage and logistics supplier who suffered short term cashflow issues.  

The Board and management team were focussed on day-to-day business operations and didn’t have the experience in wider commercial strategic or financial matters. 

Our Approach

  • Prepared quarterly board reports and met with the Board to review KPI’s and future plans 
  • Prepared annual financial projections – profit and loss account, balance sheet and cash flow and correspond with the bank on client’s behalf 
  • Reviewed current cashflow issues, projections and banking covenants regularly and challenged management where appropriate 
  • Carried out tax planning advice for both the business and for the management team as individuals 
  • Prepared presentations and held discussions with the bank for refinance arrangements

The Outcome 

  • Project managed refinancing and projections projects from start to finish on behalf of client to ensure the management team remained focused on day to day operations 
  • Proactive tax advice was given to the client after reviewing the business costs and analysing different finance options 
  • Peace of mind for client was achieved as AAB provided commercial advice given our experience in dealing with transactions with banks on other projects 
  • Regular contact from AAB to ensure projects are kept moving forward 
  • Improved efficiencies internally in finance and admin function 
  • Successfully refinanced banking arrangements
