CAPA can be instructed on a range of services in very different circumstances.
Global franchises such as McDonalds have appointed us for audit and service charge management, while a number of well-known chains including EAT and Karen Millen have instructed our teams for property solutions.
We’re also called in by insolvency practitioners and business turnaround professionals, to help save and recover cash when companies fall into administration. We’ve worked with the administrators of Jaeger, Woolworths, Jessops, Clinton Cards, among many more. We’ve recovered £15m for clients in these cases.

- All Other Sectors
When any business fails, from large corporates to micro businesses, the most expedient and valuable asset is, quite simply, cold hard cash.
When insolvency practitioners are called in as administrators to rescue a business from the wreckage, cash is the most elusive asset of them all. Because of our experience and expertise, insolvency practitioners ask us to help discover and generate cash where there seemingly is none, or help them cut crippling rent costs.
CAPA therefore plays a critical role during administrations, in both finding and recovering cash for the business in question through our Audit division, and saving cash for the company through various services in our Property team.
We are often appointed by administrators to carry out either service to help administrators ensure failed businesses can continue trading and pay their debts. In other words, we play a pivotal role in restoring businesses back to health.
Insolvency practices ranging from mid-sized companies up to the big four accountancy firms have been appointing us to help firms in administration for over a decade. They include:
Partners at these firms have appointed us to help save and generate cash on some of the largest corporate insolvencies of the past decade. We have been instructed to help them on the following administrations:
Global retail brands have been instructing CAPA on both Audit and Property services for more than 10 years.
Calvin Klein, Sony and All Saints are among the brands at the peak of prestige, which have benefited from our expertise and know how.
We have saved and recovered millions of pounds for the retail clients displayed here; we have negotiated hard on their behalf and delivered solutions that would otherwise have been beyond their reach.
As well as administrations and global retail brands, we are also appointed to help a range of other clients in both the public and private sectors.
Some of Britain's biggest banks, such as Barclays and RBS, have instructed us, along with the NHS, Vodafone and Serco. Where companies have high numbers of sites, we are the ideal partner to help them cut costs and find ways to recover cash that would otherwise have remained hidden.
