The administrators of a bowling chain with sites in London and around the south east have appointed CAPA to conduct audits on all the firm’s locations.

Duff & Phelps, the business advisory and insolvency company, instructed CAPA to undertake rates audits on 12 bowling alleys run by MFA Bowl Ltd, which entered administration in February.

Based in Lewisham, London, MFA Bowl operates bowling alleys in towns including Whitstable, Chichester and Newbury, but had recently endured financial difficulties and adverse trading conditions.

Allan Graham and Phil Duffy, of Duff & Phelps, were appointed as joint administrators on February 13 2019.

They have now appointed CAPA to conduct the rates audits, meaning the team will use bespoke software to carry out a forensic inspection of rates paid out across the 12 locations.

CAPA’s audit team will inspect the data to identity any anomalies or errors, to establish if any sums can be renegotiated and if any refunds and recoveries can be made for creditors.
