As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to escalate and businesses in all sectors start to feel its impact, governments are taking increasing steps to try to prevent the spread of the virus and to mitigate the economic fallout. The UK Government has announced a package of extensive support for businesses and individuals, as part of a broad attempt to reduce the financial impact of policies and new laws addressing the outbreak.
In this webinar, we will examine the variety of support measures available, and advise both how these schemes can be utilised and the barriers to access. Sidley lawyers Alastair Hopwood, Peter McCorkell and Louise McCarthy will host this informative debrief for companies of all sizes in all sectors.
Key topics to include:
- COVID-19 Corporate Financing Facility
- Business Interruption Loan Scheme
- Business Rates Holiday
- COVID-19 Job Retention Scheme (reclaiming wages for furloughed employees)
