Coronavirus - What support is available to you?

Published on: 25 March 2020


News coverage over the last few weeks has focused on Coronavirus and its impact around the world. 

During this time, the UK Government has taken unprecedented steps to help businesses manage the impact of the virus. 

Today, Companies House announced a three-month extension for businesses filing their accounts. Businesses must complete a short online application form and reference COVID-19 to qualify for the extension.

British Marine wants to ensure members not only understand the support it can provide, but are fully aware of the support available through government and local authorities.

British Marine encourages members to check the British Marine Coronavirus webpage regularly for updates and full details of the support available. Members should also follow British Marine on social media to stay abreast of the latest industry news and updates.

British Marine members can also stay up-to-date with the latest information by using the government’s new Coronavirus Information Service on WhatsApp.

Full details of the support available to businesses can be found here.
