Business Continuity Plan

Posted by Craig Weston at Wednesday, March 25, 2020

The impacts of Covid-19 on health and business are evolving fast. Currently, we are prioritising helping our clients who have the greatest need.  So, if you need urgent help, please get in touch.

It is essential that every business has a plan for dealing with the fallout from this pandemic.

A plan will give you peace of mind and clarify for decision-making for the future of your business, and ensure you access Government support entitlements and maximise opportunities to preserve your cashflow and profitability.  In the worst-case scenario, we want to have certainty about whether your business can continue and plan around that.

We've created some practical content to help you build your Business Continuity Plan and have three ways we can help you using our content:

  1. We can set aside 4 hours to create your Business Continuity Plan online with you.
  2. You can draft the plan before meeting with us online for 90-minutes to finalise it.
  3. You can create the plan yourself.

Doing nothing here is simply not an option.  If you would like us to send you the Business Continuity Plan and the Guide for Developing Your Business Continuity Plan then please get in touch (09) 309 2561. This gives you the option to do yourself or we can work with you to ensure you have a comprehensive plan that will see you through.

In the meantime, please understand that our team work from their home offices so there is no disruption to the service we provide.  Our accounting software is cloud based and we are available via email and phone.  So, contact us if you need help.

Lastly, now is the time to prioritise your mental health.  As they say, put your own oxygen mask on before assisting others.  If the situation is affecting you, consider blocking out social media or things that may worsen anxiety, but whatever you do, please stay in touch with us - so that together we set a plan to help you in these difficult times.

Stay safe
