Business Guidance for Covid-19

There is a lot of hearsay regarding the recent outbreak of Covid-19. With the virus spreading at a rapid rate, more businesses are transitioning to a work-from-home environment, adopting new methods of communication to keep their business running.

As a business owner, this may be a particularly stressful time for you, something that is clear to understand. And with different sources sharing different pieces of information, it can be hard to determine the best plan of action. Luckily, there are a few reputable web articles that can help you better understand what you can do in these current circumstances.

GOV.org.uk

The Government website continues to provide regular updates regarding how employers and employees will be affected by the current outbreak and what support they can receive. This covers everything, from sick pay to insurance.

Small Business

This article from Small Business goes into further detail regarding the £10,000 cash grant for small businesses. It explains how you can apply for the grant and whether you are eligible or not.

FSB

Similar to the guide by the Government website, this page on the FSB website answers common questions regarding how businesses may be affected by the virus. It also includes a guide on how to create a safe work environment for those who may not be in the position to work from home.

Entrepreneur

Although this article covers the basics, Entrepreneur makes a valid point at the beginning of the article about communication. It has never been so important for you as an employer to communicate clearly with your employees. Some of them may fear their career is on the line, so they must know where they stand and the future of the company.

What our clients say...

I highly recommend Mr Usman Nazir as an accountant. His in-depth knowledge and experience helped me immensely and with my tax return. He quickly took the stress out of the process for me and worked through my finances promptly making me savings that I would have not been able to achieve by myself. I am very thankful now to be on his books as I know now I have his experience and input for the next time making the process so much easier.

Sayeed is a highly professional accountant, his effective strategy & planning saved me from paying a hefty amount of tax which I would have paid should I had not taken his advice.

I would highly recommend F&C Accountants

Highly recommended, he listens to his clients! I am extremely grateful for Usman’s sound advice and support over the last six months. I see him regularly at our networking group and one day I expressed my frustration of my then accountant. Usman offered to help with no obligation or payment, so I gave him access and I quickly realised he was going to be a great asset so I switched accountants in June this year. Usman liaised with HMRC to do a review of my accounts dating back to 2017. He kept me informed at all stages and ultimately it allowed me to free up cash to reinvest in the business. I am extremely grateful and can safely say Usman always has the client’s interest at heart and makes them feel at ease even when deadlines are due. If you are frustrated with your current accountant or you’re not getting strategic financial and business advice, I would recommend Usman in a heartbeat knowing your business growth is his primary objective. Thank you Usman, I am forever grateful and will continue to highly recommend you and your team!

Usman is highly professional, efficient & highly knowledgeable accountant. His effective tax consultancy and accountancy services had made us save and plan tax. We highly recommend him.
