Support for the Self-Employed
The Chancellor has now announced the support for self-employed people during this period. This is a system that will be automatically assessed by HMRC and you will be contacted by the government if you are eligible.

Other Support Available for Businesses
The government has now passed legislation to start helping businesses through this difficult time. We predict that the support and advice available is going to change very quickly on this issue and would suggest you review the guidancedirectly from the offical government website as to what specific assistance applies to you and your business:
This will be updated by the government regularly as support develops and increases, so is the best source of information for you to begin with.
Due to the current uncertainty and regular announcements we are experiencing an extremely high volume of queries. Please bear with us, we will get in touch with everyone but it may take us a bit longer than normal. We are working on this as a team and you may speak to any one of our senior accountants rather than your normal accountant depending on the query and the volume of questions on any given day.
We are working very hard to support you through these difficult times and will keep in touch.
