CAPA has been instructed to audit one of England’s largest providers of ambulance support services.
CAPA will be undertaking a property audit at SSG UK Specialist Ambulance Service Ltd - now in an insolvency process - after an instruction from administrators at Leonard Curtis, the insolvency and business rescue firm.
Trading principally from its Rainham base in Essex, SSG provided vital emergency and non-emergency transport services for a range of NHS Trusts. It employed around 80 staff at its head office and managed a pool of about 300 contract staff.
The small business had been suffering financially since 2017, when it posted a significant loss. Ultimately Andrew Beckingham and Siann Huntley of Leonard Curtis were appointed as administrators on September 3 2019. The administrators have been assisting the affected NHS trusts.
Mazars, the global accountancy and business recovery firm, has appointed CAPA to conduct property audits on 83 business administrations and liquidations.
As a long-established partner of Mazars, CAPA has been appointed on a wide range of cases spanning multiple sectors and the breadth of the country.
CAPA’s Audit team will be working on properties occupied by firms in industries ranging from aerospace engineering, leisure, tourism, catering and home retail, right through to architects, wine merchants, warehousing, logistics and more.

CAPA has acquired a former restaurant property located in Victoria Gate, the shopping centre in the heart of Leeds, for the Wagyu Bar and Grill.
The previous CAU restaurant, part of the Argentinian dining chain that entered insolvency in July 2018, was acquired from Hammerson, the retail property developer and landlord at the £165m shopping arcade in central Leeds.
Opened in 2016 and anchored by a flagship John Lewis store – the largest outside London – Victoria Gate is the biggest premium retail and leisure venue in northern England. The centre hosts global brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Russell & Bromley, Hackett and T2 as well as a stunning new casino.
Thanks to the acquisition led by CAPA director James Ratcliffe, which was secured at lower rent, Wagyu Bar and Grill will now feature as one of Victoria Gate’s high-end restaurants.
