For immediate release


d&t Launches Portal for Latest Information on Government Support 
for Businesses 

25 March 2020:  Chartered accountants and business advisory firm, d&t has launched a dedicated portal to provide the latest information outlining the Government support being offered to businesses following the outbreak of COVID-19.  Designed as a free resource, the new area of the d&t website brings together information on the latest announcements affecting businesses, FAQs, checklists and relevant documentation available for download.

James Thomas, QFP, commercial manager, d&t confirms: “The current situation will have an impact on every business to a greater or lesser degree.  From a financial perspective, it is important that business owners can access the most up-to-date facts quickly and easily.  Therefore, we have published guidelines on the latest help the Government is offering and how this relates to elements such as VAT deferral, payroll and SSP (Statutory Sick Pay) and other important aspects of business.  We’ve also included relevant advice from our most senior accountants, business development managers and strategic partners too.

“The situation we all face is unprecedented, and we want to help as many businesses as possible navigate their way through this for the best possible outcome.  On a positive note, we are seeing some success stories from our clients who have been able to adapt quickly: from live stream virtual dance classes to franchises introducing tuition-based webinars.  One client is teaching music online, with about a 50% take up.  For those in a less fortunate position, our portal covers a crisis management check list and what to do when the doors shut.”

Carl Reader, chairman, d&t commented: “It’s going to be a tough time for us all over the coming weeks, but rest assured that every one of us at d&t is fighting your corner as best we can.  Together, we can get through this.”

Please feel free to call your relationship manager if you have any concerns about your business or would like advice on how to benefit from the offers made by the Government.  For more information or to access d&t’s information on COVID-19 and the help provided for businesses, please see:
