The liquidators of a large chain of tanning salons have appointed CAPA to audit all properties across the business.

Carter Clark, the business recovery and insolvency firm, has appointed CAPA to conduct full property audits of 14 sites occupied by Premier International Leisure Ltd, which traded as Absolutely Fabulous from salons around the south of England.

As an SME, Absolutely Fabulous had operated a network of successful beauty and sunbed salons for over 20 years.

After challenging trading conditions, the business entered a creditors’ voluntary liquidation. Alan J Clark, co-founder of the business recovery and insolvency firm Carter Clark, was appointed liquidator in June 2019.

Carter Clark has now appointed CAPA to conduct the property audits, meaning CAPA’s Audit team will  use bespoke software to undertake a forensic analysis of data on all property costs through the 14 sites.

The team will interrogate information on utility bills, property service management costs, rates and all other related outgoings. On a no-win no-fee basis, CAPA will look to identify any anomalies, errors or overspend, before recovering overpaid sums for the creditors of Premier International.
