About us

Extensive experience

Our team have over 30 years of combined experience in helping businesses that are struggling with debt. We work out of our office in Hailsham, Sussex or our office in Sunningdale, Berkshire but will gladly visit you at your premises or home throughout London and the South East. From the very start, you will deal with one primary contact, with a support team for cover. Our service is always discreet and completely confidential.

Our team

Alan Oatham

As a certified banker, I have come from the other side some 20 years ago to assist business owners with financing their businesses and moving them forward. This resulted in me becoming independent and being placed into multi million pound turnover businesses to turn them around for the benefit of the owners – sometimes I was the hatchet man but gained more satisfaction from saving businesses and jobs.

This made me want to help more people get on with their life and get out of debt so in 2006 I acquired a debt management and support franchisee territory in the SL postcode and later the RG postcode – this is when I first met Darran as he also acquired a territory in Sussex and we both attended the same training course back in 2006. Since then we have both worked alongside each other in related debt management businesses and then established R2B Business Solutions in 2017.

At R2B Business Solutions our aim is to stand side by side with business owners that are in debt and take the strain off them in some very stressful situations, we deal with all creditors whether they be HMRC, Landlords, Local Authorities, trade creditors, banks or other lenders. We take the pressure off so you can concentrate on the business with an aim to moving forward again.

Sometimes it is either not possible or not appropriate to turn the business around. We would then aim to provide a soft landing to protect what matters to the business owner – often this could be their home or relationship, or simply £10,000’s of pound’s. Again we are working side by side with the business owner to seek the best result for them.

Over the years I have dealt with 100s of cases but appreciate each situation is different and people have different concerns and pressures.

When businesses and business owners get into debt, it can be very helpful to have someone on your side. We work with businesses to achieve the best possible outcome from your debt situation. Because we work for you, the business owner, and not the bank or creditors, our only aim is to improve your situation by helping you manage your debt issue.

As a former certificated bailiff, I’ve seen first-hand how devastating debt can be and how situations can rapidly get out of control but with the correct help and advice that’s focused solely around you, it need not be the end of everything – there is life after debt.

Working directly with clients to understand their needs and achieve the very best outcome for them.

We differ from Insolvency Practitioners in that we are not restricted to just formal solutions to debt but also the informal solutions that can be just as effective but without some of the pitfalls.

Taking whole of market advice from the outset can save you from making costly and unnecessary mistakes. We are always happy to chat with any business owner who is struggling with finances and if it is still in the early stages the solution may be quite simple.

It doesn’t matter where you are in the process there are always positive steps that can be taken, so if you’re considering either, ceasing to trade, a debt management plan, winding-up or liquidation then let’s chat

Helping you

Working for you

Because being in debt can be a very isolating experience, we listen to you carefully and without judgment to provide frank, honest advice and support. We work for you, not the creditors, to do everything we can to improve your situation and take the stress and worry of being in debt away from you.

Realistic goals and a clear plan

Once we've gathered all the information we need about your situation, we give you a realistic idea of what we can do for you. We would never promise to get you a result we weren't confident in achieving. Instead, we use our extensive experience and knowledge to set realistic goals and formulate a plan to achieve those goals. During the process of getting you back on track, we take all the stress away from you by handling creditors and negotiating on your behalf.

Open and frank conversation

We're totally open about everything we do on your behalf and keep in contact with you throughout the process to set your mind at ease. That means that instead of dreading the phone ringing in case it's a creditor demanding payment for overdue bills, you can relax knowing that we are talking with the creditors on your behalf and you receive updates on the progress we are making to resolve your debt problems.

Being in debt can be distressing for business owners, so we work for you to lessen that distress and improve your situation whether you are temporarily struggling with cash flow or need to wind up your business.
