R3 guides regarding the Risks of Unregulated Advisers

These documents set out the misleading information provided by unregulated advisers and offer explanations as to:

  • why their arguments are flawed;
  • what consequences may flow from decisions taken on the strength of their advice; and
  • the correct approach to insolvency situations and the best way to get practical advice.

Copies of the documents are available from PBC Business Recovery & Insolvency Limited whilst the R3 website is upgraded.
