The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the UK’s financial conduct regulator, brought court proceedings in July 2020 to test how certain business interruption insurance policies respond to claims arising from COVID-19.
COVID-19 has caused many businesses to shut down or transition their employees to work from home and now as many employees look to return to the workplace, you need to have a plan in place to ensure this is done safely.
The financial impact of Coronavirus is affecting individuals and businesses up and down the country – we understand how worrying this time may be for you. The Government is offering a range of support packages to help people through this difficult period and there is a range of support offered by non-governmental bodies.
In accordance with Government advice, most of our teams are now working from home. Our robust business continuity plan and cloud-based systems have enabled us to transition to remote working with no impact on client service. All our contact details remain the same, and we have the technology and people in place to deliver what you our clients need.
Irrespective of whether or not the Government orders closure of a business, the vast majority of firms won’t have purchased cover that will enable them to claim on their insurance to compensate for their businesses being closed by COVID-19.
