Covid-19: Business Survival

Covid-19 business survival: The Government has stepped in to provide support to certain areas of the economy but even with this becoming available in the coming weeks, some of us will need advice on how to survive the lock down.

Here are our thoughts:

  1. Apply for all Government supports if you need them.
  2. Stay strong – the health of you and your family is more important than your business.
  3. Talk to us to help work through forecasts or get the figures needed for the bank.
  4. Keep sane – You can’t control this, relax and keep busy, research, get new skills, look for new technology and above all keep in regular contact with customers, suppliers, friends and family.
  5. Plan for the end of the lock down – think about how you would do things differently in this changed world.

We cannot know how long this Pandemic will last and what the effects will be on business generally. What we can do is stay focused and committed to rebuilding our businesses.

Please contact us regarding Government, cash flow and payroll supports. Our business depends on yours and we are all in this together.

  • Job Retention Scheme
