Coronavirus Update 15 May 2020

In light of the further guidance provided by the UK government this week, we would like to offer you a brief update of our own plans for the weeks and months to come.

Most of our team are still working from home and will continue to do so until it is safe to operate from our office. We have adapted well to working from home and are confident we can continue to do so for a prolonged period, if required.

That said, our preference would be to return to the workplace and we are working on plans to adapt the configuration of our office so that we can return to work safely, whilst adhering to social distancing guidance.

We are currently not opening new accounts, and this is so that we can continue to serve our existing client base during these exceptional circumstances.

We would like to take this opportunity to encourage clients with certificated accounts to adopt nominee accounts. Likewise, those clients who use cheques, to consider wire bank payments. Transactions which rely on paper systems have proven more challenging at present.  

In the interest of staff and client safety we will continue to arrange all communication remotely. We are still unable to receive clients in the office or via face to face consultation. This is likely to continue for some time and we will endeavour to update clients further, as things progress.

As a result of COVID-19 we are currently experiencing some delays in obtaining stationery from our print suppliers. This has affected our ability to send out the end of tax year pack. Our team are working to resolve this and hope to be in a position to send this to you shortly, we thank you for your patience in this matter.

Best wishes to you and your families and thank you for your ongoing co-operation during this difficult time.
