Everything we do as a practice is about continuing to offer the best support for small businesses and our extended private and non business clients. Whilst we experience the short term effects of Coronavirus – as a practice, we have put in place an operation statement to remain as active and as engaged as possible with our clients whilst following Government guidelines to stop the spread of the virus. 

The purpose of this policy is to reassure and inform you. We want to reassure you that we’re taking Coronavirus seriously and inform you of our approach and the procedures we have put in place. We also want to remind you that whilst we all need to take sensible precautions, there is no need to be overly worried about Coronavirus; the likelihood of infection is still low and, for the vast majority, the illness is not serious.

  • Although we have always been big on meeting our clients in person – From the 13th March 2020 onwards we are reducing the number of our face to face client meetings to – on a required only basis – We have strengthened our existing digital infrastructure to support the use of digital meetings via Google Hangouts – financial statements and other legal documents will still be able to be signed off digitally. All existing clients with pre-end of year meetings scheduled for the coming month of March will be contacted with further details for our new digital appointments.
  • We are still operating a “business as usual” policy. That means that all meetings and standard hours will continue as per normal. This will only change if government advice changes or we experience a Coronavirus related problem. If this happens, we will update and republish this policy.
