We continue to monitor the COVID-19 guidance very closely and are following recommendations on health and safety for all our staff. We want you to know that we have a business continuity plan in place and remain very much open for business. We will continue to underwrite each finance request on a case by case basis, as well as working with existing clients who may find themselves in unexpected financial difficulty to find solutions.
Our offices have now closed and all employees are working remotely with full access to all of our systems.
As a small team we make sure that all internal processes are documented and can be performed by multiple employees. Different team members can perform essential functions so that the we can continue to operate even if individual employees are unable to work.
Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our staff. We have temporarily suspended all business travel and will not meet in person until further notice; however, we have full capability to ‘meet’ digitally and will be taking our client meetings online.
We have received a high number of enquiries relating to the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS); as a British Business Bank accredited lender we will have access to the scheme and, as soon as we have full details on how the scheme will work, we will publish information on how businesses can access this facility.
