We are meeting clients by an appointment only basis in our offices whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines. For your protection and ours, when you arrive for your pre-arranged appointment we will be asking you to wear a mask. We will also be taking your temperature and that of our representative. This is done by simply holding the thermometer close to your wrist or forehead.
Please do continue to drop paperwork through our letterboxes and contact the person you are dealing with directly by way of telephone call or email.

Article of the month: the end of Furlough - what now?
As most will be aware, the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (Furlough) will end on 30 September 2021. Throughout August and September, the government’s contribution is reduced to 60% with employers making up salary to (at least) 80% plus pension and NI.
With that reduction, and the anticipated return to work, employers are advised to review their business needs and practices, update COVID risk assessments and consult with staff on the future working arrangements.
So how can an employer do this?
