Recovery advice scheme launched for small businesses

A government-backed scheme to offer free online advice to help small businesses bounce back from the coronavirus (COVID-19) has been launched.

The Recovery Advice for Business Scheme gives small firms access to free, one-to-one advice with an expert adviser to help them through the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for long-term recovery.

Advice offered includes bespoke, specialist assistance from accountancy, legal and advertising experts, as well as marketing, recruitment and tech advice to help businesses adapt to difficult circumstances and bounce back as the UK economy recovers.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD), the Advertising Association, the Law Society and the Management Consultancies Association (MCA) are among the professional bodies that have signed up for the scheme.

Commenting on the scheme, Small Business Minister Paul Scully said: ‘We have stood by small businesses throughout this crisis, offering a wide-ranging package of financial support.However, it is also important that business owners get easy access to expert advice and support.

‘It is incredible to see so many professional advisers stepping up to do their bit for small businesses across the country. This advice platform will help to boost our recovery from the impact of coronavirus, giving small businesses extra support to adapt their business models and come back fighting.’

The Recovery Advice for Business Scheme runs until 31 December 2020. Further information on accessing the support can be found here.
