The last few months have seen an unprecedented set of events and circumstances around the World.
The level of concern in the UK has been increasing since the start of February leading to a budget focused on providing support to our economy. Only a matter of days later, Chancellor Rishi Sunak, was standing next to the Prime Minister and Chief Medical Officer outlining another series of initiatives designed to help business with the promise that “we will do whatever it takes”.
Businesses are trying to deliver as normal as possible service despite these unprecedented circumstances. There is genuine concern and worry amongst the business community, but we want you to know that our team are here to help you, your family and the wider business community throughout this crisis, and out the other side.
Whilst the primary concern of any organisation is the wellbeing and safety of their employees, a plan needs to be put in place now to ensure there is a sustainable platform to operate from as lockdown continues in its new form.
We have put together a series of short snippets that you might find useful. These focus particularly around finance and employee issues as these are the two most common queries we have fielded this year.
We endeavour to keep the information as up-to-date as possible, but please note that the legislation is changing constantly as we progress through the second wave, so if in doubt please call us.
