Following the Government announcement yesterday evening we have decided again that we will close our office reception to visitors. We do have a letter box for small deliveries, and these will be collected daily. There will be a very small number of staff in the building, so if you have a delivery which will not fit through the letter box please call the normal office number and someone will let you in.
The office telephone number will be answered in the office as normal, but as all but a couple of members of staff will be working from home you are likely to be told someone will call you back as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience at this difficult time, our actions are all aimed at protecting our clients and staff as much as we can. We hope you understand that whilst our staff are working remotely that our normal response and delivery of services might be delayed, but we are doing our best to keep this to a minimum.
HMRC have said that they still expect tax returns to be filed by the normal 31 January deadline. If they are not an automatic penalty will be issued, which if COVID related we may be able to appeal. We are still aiming to complete all tax returns as normal by the deadline, but we would appreciate it if you could let us have all required information by the end of this week.
We hope you all stay safe and well and look forward to seeing you all later in the year.
