Updated 27.08.20: The last fortnight has seen a number of important developments and changes which will affect businesses.

Some of the most significant include the extension to the closing date for applications for government backed loans, such as the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme and the Bounce Bank Loan Scheme, for businesses and the extension to the ban on evictions for residential property.

Encouragingly, a new grant for small and medium sized businesses, awarding up to £5,000 to eligible businesses to cover accountancy services, business advice, legal and HR services. This essentially means that businesses could be able to access almost all of our services for free through the scheme.
