Published: 14/04/2020 By Andrew BaileyThe economic impact of COVID-19 is clearly going to be great, but the full force of this pandemic is yet to be fully felt.
In the weeks and months to come we are likely to see volatile financial markets, a rise in unemployment and the unfortunate failure of thousands of businesses worldwide.
Despite the ongoing efforts of the UK Government, the country is likely to experience a significant decline in economic growth and small to medium-sized businesses are likely to feel the brunt of this.
Here are some key facts that have already emerged:
• 6 in 10 businesses could run out of cash in three months
• 20% of businesses only have enough money for one month
• More than £400 billion of economic funding has been made available by the Government
• Rules around tax payments, debt and insolvency have been softened
• Bank of England base rate cut to just 0.1%
In light of this, it is important that businesses of all size seek support from their trusted advisors to help them survive and hopefully succeed in the months and years to come.
