#BeKind. How we go about helping businesses and people…

Posted on: 21/07/2021

Lets look at how we go about helping businesses and people, to recover from the #covid19pandemic

Our job as Insolvency Practitioners is, of course, underpinned by compliance and to the rules and regulations demanded by our profession.
However, we never lose sight of the fact that insolvency is about people and that these people need to be treated with compassion during what is a very difficult time

As insolvency practitioners, we understand that for every company, big or small, insolvency ultimately affects the people involved, from sleepless nights for the directors to employees worrying about their jobs.

Here is what our clients say about us
From the beginning of my journey with Clive Fortis and his team, I was treated with honesty, openness and compassion. I had the whole process explained and was included in every step, rather than judged or bamboozled with technical jargon.
The whole team at Antony Batty, go above and beyond and work with you in a supportive manner, like I have never experienced before. I will always be grateful for the support I have received.

Four years ago, if it weren’t for Antony Batty and his team, I would have lost my business and over 40 staff would have lost their jobs.
We hit a major financial problem with half a million pounds of missing money, and I could not see a way out. But Antony Batty explained a Company Voluntary Arrangement to me and suddenly there was a light at the end of the tunnel.

Ultimately, our job is to deliver difficult messages in a sensitive way and to build trust and empathy with our clients. We are then in the best position to implement the best possible solution, whether that is recovery, restructuring or liquidation.

It is well known that financial difficulties, whether for individuals or within businesses, can lead to real mental health problems, including depression and anxiety. In a report, the Money and Mental Health Policy Institute found that 18% of people with mental health problems may also suffer with debt issues and that 46% of people in problem debt also have a mental health problem. The report suggested that c.1.5 million people struggle with #mentalhealth issues and problem debt at the same time and that the situation can be made worse if they are treated insensitively by creditors. Our team member Elaine Wilkins (Tucker) is a #mentalhealthfirstaider endorsing how important the way we treat our clients is to us at Antony Batty & Co.
