Keeping you safe
Whilst there has been a relaxation in the legal requirements and restrictions, the government has clearly recommended caution and a gradual return to the workplace. Many of our team do not yet have access to both vaccinations and we, therefore, feel it important to retain some safety precautions to keep them, and any clients in the same position, safe.
We have stringent internal procedures that staff are following to ensure workspaces are not shared, communal areas are regularly cleaned, and social distancing will still be practiced by all staff.
We have also introduced a workplace COVID-19 testing scheme where all staff attending the office have to report a negative lateral flow test. For staff working from the office, they are testing twice a week to ensure we are all Covid free.
Although we do have more staff returning to office, some are still working partly from home to keep numbers in the office down to enable social distancing and enable a gradual return to normal. So please note that you may speak with different people than normal, but we are all working together as a team.
To ensure that all staff and clients are kept as safe as possible we would ask that all of our clients follow government guidance with regards to keeping safe and self-isolating where necessary and not visiting the office if you are required to self-isolate due to contact with Covid-19.
Visiting the Office
Our reception is now fully open but we would request that you continue to wear a mask when entering and check how many people are already inside before entering.
From 19 July 2021 we will have a limited number of client appointments in the office. Please note that we only have a small meeting room that is difficult to ventilate due to privacy concerns. This means that we will offer a restricted number of appointments to ensure that the room can be thoroughly cleaned between uses. We have a screen in place in the interview room to enable you to see your accountant and remove your mask if you wish to.
Most of our team are also able to offer appointments at your home and are happy to arrange this with you on a case-by-case basis. If you would like a face-to-face appointment, please discuss the options with your accountant or their assistant.
We will continue to review our procedures and amend them as it becomes appropriate and as our whole team are able to be fully vaccinated. We thank you for helping us in maintaining the safety of our team.
Some of the team at Maynard Johns are still working at full capacity remotely from their own homes. We are now fully equipped with our I.T. and phone systems to provide you with a full service with staff working away from the office.
Please remember that we do have a 72-hour quarantine procedure in place for any physical records being dropped into the office, so no work will be carried out until this isolation period has passed.
Remote working and staff having to visit the office to drop off and collect work means that there may be some delays in our normal workflow timings to accommodate these restrictions, particularly on physical records, which may have an impact on how quickly we are able to complete work.
Please note that staff follow all data protection and confidentiality requirements when removing records from the office.
If you have any queries, please contact the office.
Our telephone lines are open as normal between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday.
