Coronavirus is a worldwide pandemic and is affecting millions of individuals and businesses. These are uncertain and unprecedented times and as the spread of COVID19 continues, we want to continue to support our clients the best we can. Together, we can get through this.

We will be updating this page as soon as the UK Government announce any new measures to tackle the virus or support people and businesses.

The government has launched a support finder tool for businesses and self employed people to see what support if available to them.

As part of the UK200Group, we have access to up-to-the-minute information and can help you get access to the support you need. We’ll be keeping you informed in general terms, but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

If you need any help or advice on how Coronavirus will impact you, please get in touch with your usual Ellacotts contact or you can contact us here. We are here to support you and your business through these tough times.

Stay safe, be kind and we will get through this together.

Genuine HMRC contact and recognising phishing emails and texts

Please be aware of phishing or bogus emails and text messages. Phishing is the fraudulent act of emailing a person to get their personal or financial information. These emails often include a link to a bogus website encouraging you to enter your personal details. This guidance from HMRC explains how to recognise genuine contact from HMRC, and how to tell when an email or text message is phishing or bogus.
