Pet shops can be open for business but the priority should always be to keep you, your staff and your customers safe within the Government advice on social distancing.
The Business Support website from the Government looks like the best source of information about the financial support being put in place. Some parts are for England only and you can find links at the top of the page to advice for other parts of the UK. This page also has a summary of the financial support available to business.
Here is information on the Coronavirus Future Fund which will offer convertible loans between £125,000 to £5 million to innovative companies which are facing financing difficulties due to the coronavirus outbreak.
This information from the Consumer Council may also be useful to you or your staff. It covers sick pay, mortgage payments, benefits and what banks to doing to support their customers.
It might also be worth checking with your local chamber of commerce – we’ve seen examples where they are offering free webinars or information to help businesses manage cashflow or other useful information to help you plan to keep your business going over this uncertain period. Find your local chamber here.
