KPMG is acting as administrator of pub management company Deepclear which runs 26 pubs in Yorkshire. A spokesman for administrators KPMG said the company’s directors appointed administrators after running into “financial difficulty” because of a drop in consumer spending affecting its turnover. KPMG spokesman Alison Anderson said: “The directors appointed administrators after getting into financial difficulty due to a drop in consumer spending impacting on turnover. “The administrators are trading the business, via the use of a management company for licensing reasons, while seeking a sale of the properties.
