The impact of COVID-19 (or coronavirus - the disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 or SARS-CoV-2) is being felt throughout the UK. To support businesses and people through the disruption the Government has announced a package of measures. Details of the measures are still emerging and in some cases legislation is being enacted to formalise the assistance. There may be further measures announced depending how the crisis develops.  

To assist accountants, tax advisers and auditors, Accountancy Daily have collated all of their COVID-19 coverage. Business Essentials contains content to help businesses manage the impact of coronavirus, including employment and remote working issues. Additional products and services are available through group companies Croner Taxwise, Peninsula and BrightHR.

The UK government has a web page linking to guidance for employees, employers and businesses and an interactive Business support finder.  See also the relevant pages from the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive.     

The professional bodies have areas dedicted to COVID-19 on their websites; eg here for the ICAEW and here for the CIOT
