Following the announcement of the national lockdown we are still awaiting guidance and further information from the government on what is available and what assistance we can provide to businesses. Please keep checking back on our website and as soon as we have the relevant information we will make this available.
On Thursday 5 November, the Government announced increased support for businesses across the UK which includes the following:
- the furlough scheme will now be extended until the end of March across the UK
- the next self-employed income support grant will also increase from 55% to 80% of average profits - up to £7,500
