The UK and Scottish Governments have been updating businesses and the public with guidelines to cope with the current situation and we would like to update on the current status within our organisations.
As of today, all staff are working as normal in the office but we are asking clients to try to communicate with us by email. We will endeavor to answer emails within 24 hours but will prioritise those we feel require a quicker reply.
It has also been announced that at lunchtime on Friday schools may be closed and the period of closure will be advised. At this time we will then update further but we see no factors which will affect our ability to complete work as we are now. We have heavily invested in processes and technology to allow for this situation naturally by becoming a cloud-based company. It is likely on a day-to-day basis staff may be affected by working in an office but they have the same access at home using company laptops as they do here.
This is why it is important e-mails are sent as they will not have access to calls. Calls can be answered by senior staff who have access through apps on phone. However, there may be a need to support families as well as clients.
We will try out best to offer our full range of accountancy services as normal during this challenging period.
