COVID-19 (Updated 21/06/22)

With some of our team working remotely we are asking clients to telephone, email or click here to contact us. This ensures your enquiry is passed to the relevant team member and they will contact you directly.

 

Please be assured that we have appropriate COVID risk assessments and safety measures in place for the safety of our staff and clients.

Keeping within Employment Law

As things are constantly changing we recommend that all employers read the ACAS Coronavirus Advice that explains what you can and can’t do, to do this please click here.

A small employer is judged as at 29/02/2020 and has fewer than 250 employees. For all clients that we process payroll for we will deal with recovering SSP against PAYE, all you have to do is let us know about any staff who are off due to COVID-19. This support ended on 30th September 2021.
