Coronavirus support for OC clients

Last Updated: 12 May

We will be updating this page regularly as the Government releases information on support packages for small and medium sized businesses.

Click on the headings below to find PDFs with helpful information we have gathered over the past days.

Please rest assured that we are totally committed to helping our clients to benefit from all of the measures that have been announced, and we will be working around the clock to review the technical guidance and issue updates to our clients as quickly as possible.

We have prepared briefings on the following topics which we hope will be of assistance to all clients.

We will be producing further guidance next week on Sick Pay and claiming Universal Credits.

Please be aware that there currently seems to be a lag of 48 to 72 hours between new measures being announced by the Chancellor, and technical guidance being released by the Government. We cannot provide accurate practical guidance to our clients until the technical guidance is released, so please be patient and wait for us to review the detailed information once it is published.

Many thanks in advance for your patience.

Ben’s been here pretty much since the get-go and, as such, has been instrumental in growing the business into what it is today.
He’s passionate about, in his words, ‘helping people and businesses that are just constantly being taken advantage of’ by providing affordable advice and support with an eye to ‘levelling the playing field’.
Ben looks forward to the day when automation will, once and for all, fumigate the fear and confusion caused by oppressive bureaucracy and strongly believes that ‘technology holds the solutions to the problems we’re trying to solve’.
Furthermore, he can see that technology will, in time, provide the scalability required to help a theoretically limitless number of SMEs survive and thrive against the odds.
Ben doesn’t think much of government agencies and he doesn’t suffer fools; two points that aren’t always mutually exclusive.
