Life as we know it seems to have been put on hold since the government tightened restrictions on movement around the UK this week, and our team is now self-isolating and the office is empty.

However, as we are a cloud-based accounting company, we are continuing to operate as normal and want to reassure our clients that it is business as usual.  And that includes our prospective clients too!  We are through the busy season and are ready to book in meetings with all those prospects who have been in contact with us in recent months and who have been patiently holding back on our waiting list.

With that in mind, if you have been thinking about changing accountants then now is a good time to get in touch so that we can book in a Zoom meeting for you with one of the team.

The changes impacting on so many businesses are very much in our minds presently, and we have been in close contact with several of our clients to make sure that they are coping.  As well as having many conversations around the measures being put in place by the government we are also able to provide business advice over the phone to help people to work out new ways of operating in the current circumstances.  We are also working hard to make it easier for clients to pull together cash flow forecasts with the aim of helping them to work out whether loan funding is required, and also to support their applications for loans under the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme.

Among other things we are offering the following help:

  • A cashflow forecast template, which you can download for free here – 12 month cashflow forecast template;
  • Heavily discounted support in the form of a one hour phone call with one of the team to review your completed cashflow forecast template, or a three hour workshop held by one of our directors to help you to create a cashflow forecast from scratch;
  • A webinar for our clients with Sam Swinstead of Vivo HR, who talks about the latest measures that will impact you as an employer, which you can access here –

We will be working to share as much information as possible on our website and through our social media channels over the next few weeks as more guidance is released.

Please get in touch as we are very much open for business to provide support for businesses that are going through a challenging time.

All of us here at Starfish Accounting send you our very best wishes to keep well.
