During the past few weeks we have been exceptionally busy working to provide support to those clients that have contacted us for help regarding how Covid 19 is affecting the financial aspects of their business. Information is currently more available and clear and the following link covers most circumstances:
In regard to our fee charges specifically relating to COVID-19 support we have decided that this is not a time to be profiteering and therefore all COVID-19 assistance will not be charged for. For this reason and in order that we can assist as many of our clients as possible please keeping calls and emails to essential matters only. Please remember as a small business we are impacted upon just as all our clients are so those clients who can please settle your account promptly. All other services will be charged in line with our normal fee rates and if any clients need time to pay please contact us.
We ask that telephone calls be kept to an absolute minimum. Our contact details are in the website footer so please email to arrange collection/delivery of paperwork for processing and also if you have any queries so that we can deal with them accordingly. We will ensure that phone calls are diverted to our mobiles, however, again we ask that contact by telephone be the last option.
We have compiled a list of important advice from HM Government and other financial institutes. We will update the document in line with any further advice or changes that are announced. You can download a PDF copy using the button below.
