Business support during COVID-19

The outbreak of the coronavirus that causes the respiratory disease COVID-19 has caused a massive jolt to economies worldwide and the UK is no exception.

Some of our clients are struggling under these strange new circumstances and many have contacted us to ask for advice.

  • What support is available?
  • Is my business eligible?
  • And how can I access it as soon as possible?

As the financial measures are evolving and changing daily it can be very difficult to see what the latest guidance is and what measures affect you.

To make things clear for our clients, we have written easy to understand guides on each measure and who they affect.

Because the situation is fast-moving, we can’t always give the answer you might want to hear. There are still a lot of don’t-knows as we await clarity from the Government and the roll-out of systems to support the various support schemes.

Everything we do know about the key measures is set out below and we’ll be keeping this updated every time we learn something new.
