BPE Solicitors are able to provide cross-team expertise to assist you through these challenging times to provide you with pro-active and pragmatic advice on the options available to your business.
The COVID-19 crisis has already had a profound effect on businesses up and down the country of all sizes and within all sectors.
The commercial landscape is likely to have changed forever, or at least for the foreseeable future, as businesses are forced to adapt quickly. Unfortunately, and in spite of the astonishingly wide-reaching Government support that has been announced, some businesses will face incredibly difficult decisions over the coming weeks and months.
Businesses everywhere are facing an unprecedented challenge as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. With the best will in the world, it is nearly impossible to maintain “Business as Usual”. This is particularly the case within the Leisure, Food & Beverage, Retail, Construction and Travel sectors.
In spite of the unprecedented package of financial support that the Government has announced to date – and more measures will no doubt be added over the coming days and weeks – businesses face a prolonged period of uncertainty.
Cash has always been “King”, but that is never more apt than the present time, when businesses juggle demands on their cashflow associated with creditors taking longer to pay than usual, and overheads remaining high.
BPE Solicitors are here to help. We are able to offer businesses access to a seamless cross-team offering to advise on all matters affecting you at this difficult time.
We have excellent links with regional professionals including Accountants, Banks, Surveyors and Insolvency Practitioners, some of whom we have worked with for decades, that we trust to advise our clients. If their expertise is required, then we will work with you and them to implement the best strategies to navigate your business through this challenging time. Unfortunately the knock-on effects of the COVID-19 crisis are likely to be profound and felt for years to come.
Taking the right decisions at this early stage – even if they are difficult - will be critical for your business’s ability to not just survive after this crisis, but thrive.
