Coronavirus Resources

The COVID-19 pandemic caused serious disruption for public services, people and businesses. During this period of uncertainty, the Government delivered a range of measures to help provide support for those who needed it.

Now that the successful rollout of the vaccination programme has put us on the road back to some level of normality, the Government schemes are drawing to a close, with the deadline for claiming the fifth and final SEISS grant on 30 September 2021 and the Job Retention Scheme also ending on this date, with final submissions needed by 14 October 2021 at the latest.

The information included below is just a recap of all the support measures announced for reference purposes, but if you would like to discuss opportunities that may be available for you now, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
