Tuesday 24th March
Please see below our information about our preparations for Coronavirus.
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister last night, we have closed our office with immediate effect to safeguard our staff and to help reduce the increased pressure on NHS resource.
As previously communicated our firm has a Business Continuity (BC) Plan in place and we did prepare for this eventuality.
Our telephone lines remain open, Direct Dial numbers have been diverted to individual business mobile numbers where possible and the main office number has also been diverted so we will be able to take a message and have the relevant person call you back. If you wish to contact a specific person, email would be more appropriate at this time.
As you would expect we have temporarily suspended all business travel and working on site. Where our staff would usually work at your premises to prepare your accounts we will be contacting all clients individually to discuss arrangements for this nearer the time.
All of our team can support you remotely from wherever they are. We are asking employees to self-isolate and follow Government guidelines if they feel unwell and present COVID-19 symptoms.
With the new movement restrictions and if any members of our team become unwell and have to self-isolate, resulting in resource issues, we may have to discuss priorities and our approach with you; in these circumstances we will endeavour to maintain our commitments to the best of our ability.
If you have made practice business decisions regarding your internal plans that you want us to be aware of please do let us know.
As you'll be acutely aware, the situation is changing daily and we will keep this post updated.
We have taken measures to safeguard the health and well-being of our team and others. We'd also like to take this opportunity to express our personal thanks and appreciation to all of the healthcare workers who are on the front line working to contain Coivd-19 virus.
Stay safe and positive.
