BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency

We are an independent company of insolvency practitioners committed to finding the right solutions for businesses and individuals in financial difficulty


At BRI, we specialise in the field of insolvency and believe that we offer sound, practical advice and solutions. Whilst we are not the only providers of insolvency services, we still believe that we are the best.

BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency was established in 1982 when a firm of Chartered Accountants set up an insolvency department under the wing of one of its founding directors. In 2001, the department was subject to a management buy-out by the current directors. Since then BRI has grown, thanks in part to its sound principles, which continue to mark it out from the crowd.

BRI pride themselves on offering business recovery and insolvency services to both businesses and individuals in financial difficulty. This is given regardless of the resulting fee for the firm - initial interviews are always free of charge and without obligation.

BRI operates from offices in Northampton, Banbury, Coventry, Hitchin, Milton Keynes and Southampton. Each office is the responsibility of one or more of the management team and includes an insolvency practitioner and accountant.

BRI's highly qualified team is friendly and approachable and always have clients' interests at heart so you will always receive the right recommendation, irrespective of the fee outcome for ourselves. Furthermore, if the appropriate way out of your problems doesn't include using our expertise, we will recommend that way forward.

Whatever the issues confronting you, the chances are that we will have seen something similar before. The management team has more than 120 years business recovery and insolvency experience from within the top four big firms, the Insolvency Service, as lecturers, examiners and otherwise. The BRI team have a range of skills and knowledge that enables us to focus on the differing needs of our clients and react quickly to changes in a fast moving world.

At BRI, we aim to keep our costs competitive. Whilst everyone is focused on the headline charge out rates for principals in the business, our average charge out rate on liquidations is well below the big firms' and most sole practitioner rivals.

We remain committed to giving clients the right advice, first time and every time. By offering you the best advice and support we hope that you will help to spread the word, using our preferred and most successful form of marketing, word of mouth.

I appreciate that we never hope to need your services but, unfortunately, circumstances dictate that our clients often do need your sage advice and wisdom so I will keep sending you and your colleagues our less fortunate clients so you can continue to work your magic

Accountant, Wellingborough,

Thank you for explaining everything so clearly, we all felt that it was a very easy winding-up process which had been made easier by our meetings.

When we first discussed liquidating the Company via a members’ voluntary liquidation it was all a bit daunting as there are so many things involved, but I think your team approached it matter of factly and my team feel that we have  covered everything  and we will soon be moving on.

Many, many thanks for your help in this matter.

Director, Weldon,

You provided direct and swift clarity on the financial position of the company. Pragmatic options on the best way forward were then presented, reflecting the best interests of the company and its directors. The innovative path taken in the end was not one the board had considered and proved to be the best option for all related parties. Invaluable advice and guidance!

Company director, London,

“We as a company have dealt with BRI for several years now and I would like to thank you for all the support you have given me, helping me to understand the complicated procedures and always being at the end of the phone ready to answer any questions I may have.

It cannot be easy making sure you stay impartial but at the same time supporting and being sympathetic towards both the company in liquidation and also towards the creditors. I have always found BRI to be impartial and I always feel reassured when I know its BRI who have been appointed.”

Company, Kettering,
