As you may have heard, the Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced unprecedented support for businesses. This includes grants, loans and a wage guarantee for every employer – keep your staff on, and the Government will guarantee their wages at a rate of 80% (up to £2,500 per month).
There is additional support for the self-employed and charities too. You can read the Chancellor’s speech HERE.
