The Chancellor extended the support

The Chancellor extended the support available once again there yesterday which further reinforces the fact that the battle against COVID-19 is still far from being over and based on his extended timescales it would be reasonable to expect at least some form of disruption into April/May and most likely for at least the first 6 months of next year though there are plenty of positives signs.  

The three key announcements yesterday were:

  1. the extension of furlough payments to 30 April 2021
  2. businesses will now have until 31 March 2021 to access the Government-backed loan schemes
  3. the budget announcement will be on 3 March 2021 whereby further support packages are expected to be announced including there being mention of new loan schemes that will replace the current Government-backed loan schemes
