About us

Cirrus is a professional services team headed by Simon Gwinnutt, a licensed Insolvency Practitioner with over 25 years’ experience in business recovery and insolvency, both corporate and personal.  Simon Gwinnutt is authorised to act as an Insolvency Practitioner by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

We are an independent practice, able to give you unbiased and confidential advice as a company director, trading partnership or individual, experiencing financial difficulties or requiring to restructure your business or financial affairs.

For many accountants, solicitors and other professionals in the Midlands region who know us, we are predominantly or exclusively the preferred choice for client referral.

Typically, we are engaged by owner-managed company directors.  We also undertake work for trading partnership and individuals.

At Cirrus, we undertake all types of formal insolvency procedure relating to both companies and individuals, including:



CVA – company voluntary arrangement

IVA – individual voluntary arrangement


We also undertake solvent liquidation, known as a members’ voluntary liquidation. This procedure is usually undertaken as a tax-efficient method to realise and extract the value in your company.

We are always happy to undertake an initial meeting without any cost obligation to either a referrer or client.  We are always entirely comfortable to discuss costs and fixed fee work, and to be clear on the costs to you before we are instructed to act.

We will be happy to receive your contact, even if you are undecided whether you require our services and you would like an initial meeting.

Our philosophy

We never forget that a recommendation or an instruction has to be earned; and that our professional contacts who refer work to us, and our prospective clients, have a choice as to whether they work with us.

Our philosophy is to undertake a client assignment with diligence and courtesy. Particularly, we are mindful to avoid the typical stressors for our client that (we know from experience) so often occur in circumstances of managing business difficulties.

At Cirrus, we do not engage in unsolicited approaches and ‘ambulance chasing’ activities to obtain work; rather we prefer to continue to work with a network of professionals who entrust their clients to us by choice.  The referrals that we continue to obtain both from other professionals and previous clients is, we believe, testimony that something is fundamentally right with our approach.

Apart from listing our details in the databases of professional bodies, we do not advertise. Rather we prefer to continue to obtain our work through recommendation.
