Corporate financial advice

Exeter Estates – We advised the optimum debt structure to maximise shareholder wealth for this new sustainable transport and business hub.

East Devon District Council – We provided financial accounting in respect of the treatment of Government grants to ensure the most efficient taxation treatment for this renewable energy project. Considering multiple loan types from the Public Works Loan Board allowed the highest cashflow while keeping debt repayments to the lowest level.

Swindon Council – Our team provided subsidy control advice for both the Levelling Up application for the Oasis Leisure Centre and a second application by Swindon Council to support ongoing regeneration of the heritage leisure offering at the Health Hydro.

Commercial Energy Advice and Planning

East Devon District Council – Review of the energy market and forecast of future pricing for this carbon neutral scheme. We set out principles for, and successfully negotiated on behalf of our client for, decoupling Energy from Waste pricing from gas prices to support long term price stability in advance of incoming legislation.
