There are now multiple support packages available for businesses and their owners to help during this time. But how do you know if you are getting all the help that’s available?
Running a business during a global pandemic is no mean feat. While nothing can replace your business being open, the government have set out a number of financial packages to support businesses. From the Job Retention Scheme to Time to Pay Service, it’s hard to know what your business can apply for.
The Business Support Finder helps businesses discover what help is available. The simple form asks you a number of questions including: number of employees, turnover and business type. This system uses this information and informs owners of the support packages available to them.
