Coronavirus global resources

We realise many organisations' ability to meet financial commitments and tax deadlines, pay their staff and generate income will be impacted during this time, so we want to help by providing regularly updated information on:

  • The regulatory and financial support being offered by governments across the world such as subsidies, tax cuts, tax deadline postponements, protection shields, etc. 
  • How to navigate specific employmentlegal and tax challenges
  • Remote working and working from home best practice. 

Our member firms are ready to help businesses and their people at this difficult time for the world.  Please contact me personally at any time (giles@alliottgroup.net) or our member firms directly, we are here to help.
