Much of the commentary about the challenges businesses are facing due to COVID-19 has, understandably, focused on how well equipped people are to work from home.
However, it is critical that you think more broadly. The knock on impact of the pandemic will touch almost every part of your organisation.
Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, you need to look at your lease provisions to understand your obligations to keep premises open and the implications if you want to close. It is highly likely your IT systems will be under extreme pressure, while GDPR requirements become even more complex with a virtual workforce.
The supply chain is another area that will experience significant strain. You need to review your contracts to ensure you understand your position. Corporate transactions that are in the pipeline will be placed in doubt and, unfortunately, many businesses will experience cashflow difficulties.
We’ve put this booklet together to give you some helpful and practical guidance about what you need to do in a number of key areas. There are contact details for specialists in each of them - please get in touch with them if there is anything you need. You can also contact me at any time and I will do whatever I can to help.
