As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic unfolds Smith & Williamson continues to monitor the situation with the firm’s primary objective being to safeguard the health and well-being of all its stakeholders, including staff, clients and third parties.
The firm writes:
“The impact of the crisis is having a profound impact on all our lives, both personal and professional. There is no road map for the current situation, however, we believe that timely and targeted advice can make a difference and there are a number of ways we can help. We have launched our COVID-19 Hub designed as a starting point to answer your key questions and it will be updated regularly through the next few months. Below is a selection of topics covered on the hub, which I hope you find useful.
“We have also just launched a Covid-19 Interactive guide to help businesses and the self-employed to navigate the different financial and tax measures and determine what support is right for you.
“We are running a short Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme survey to gauge the mood of business in relation to CBILS and related schemes in response to a request from regulators to obtain feedback on the schemes and their implementation. Your views would be much appreciated.
“Please keep safe and well over the coming weeks and we continue to be on hand for a more detailed conversation if you need us. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with one of our team below or through your regular Smith & Williamson contact:
