During this unsettling time, It is understandable that many small business owners are currently concerned about the impact that COVID-19 may have on their business, and we are too.
The information from the government and in the media can be overwhelming, exhausting and at times contradictory, and it is difficult to know what decisions to make in regard to your business.
During these uncertain times, we want to be there for you and your business, and we want to help you as much as we can.
We know that running a business can be difficult at the best of times, so the current situation only makes things more challenging.
We are trying to share any information which can help business owners get through these tough times.

We understand that cashflow is one of the concerns for some of our clients at this time, with some businesses experiencing less trade/footfall. There may be some things you can do to reduce the impact of having fewer customers such as negotiating with suppliers and speaking with HMRC to agree on an instalment arrangement etc. For some general cashflow tips, take a look at our blogs here, and get in touch about cashflow management.
We’re here to help you
Please get in touch if you are unsure about anything, our number one value is relationships, and at this time we believe this is so important. Our office is now closed and all the team will continue to work from home. Thanks to the use of cloud accounting and storage, this is an option which will work to keep Rosslyn Associates running.
We offer Complimentary Client Reviews (CCRs) & Proactive Accounting Meetings (PAMs) to clients and non-clients respectively. These are usually a one-hour meeting to look at your business as a whole, discuss your challenges and opportunities and look at making a plan. We would like to offer these one-hour, complimentary meetings to all business owners and we would like to incorporate talking about the challenges you face or are worried about in relation to the coronavirus. Please let us know if you would like to book a one-hour complimentary session and we can schedule to have one via Zoom (video call).
