Coronavirus update

The situation over the spread of the Coronavirus is changing rapidly on a daily basis.  Our priority at this time is to help safeguard the health and safety of our staff, clients and contacts whilst ensuring we continue to provide you with the best possible client service.  With this in mind we are implementing a firm wide contingency plan including:

  • Remote working - whilst our offices will remain open our teams are being encouraged to work from home where possible.
  • Meetings - our people have been asked to avoid face-to-face meetings wherever possible but will be fully available by phone, email, conference calls and online meeting facilities.
  • Events - we are postponing all forthcoming events and will be contacting attendees shortly.

Coronavirus is going to present a massive challenge to all of us but especially businesses that have fixed overheads and wage bills to pay.  Many businesses will have to consider business rescue and insolvency issues that will be alien to them.  

Immediate decisions will need to be made on whether to take up the Government schemes to support businesses.  Some of these are automatic so no decision is required and some schemes need to be applied for.  Of these some are grants and others are deferment/loans.  We have summarised the main schemes available to SMEs with links to the official Government guidance.

These welcome new measures are focused on easing cashflow pressure and assisting with fixed costs and will be a lifeline for many companies.  However, directors will have to consider the implications of further borrowing and the deferment and loans will eventually have to be repaid.  For businesses that were already under pressure or their future viability in doubt before this crisis further borrowing may not be the answer.

Here at McTear Williams & Wood we stand ready to help your clients navigate a way through this crisis.  If you have any concerns please do get in touch.

It is business as usual at McTear Williams & Wood.
