Coronavirus – Checklist for business
The impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on business in Jersey will be significant and for some sectors it is already being felt.
We want to let you know that we are working very closely with Government to put in place several support measures which will help you navigate your way in these difficult and challenging times. To start with they will include deferring social security payments and GST and we are working together to develop additional support mechanisms. Of course, we will let you know about this as soon as possible.
You should take steps now to prepare your business for any disruption:
- Look after your own health and wellbeing and that of your family, your colleagues and the wider community. Follow the latest medical advice from jefor both individuals and your business
- Watch your cashflow. Once you have an idea of how serious and immediate the cashflow pressures will be, talk to your bank as they will be looking at ways they can help.
- Review your operational resilience. Taking account of the medical advice, consider how you can safely deliver your business services products e.g. rotate staff working from home or in the office
This checklist outlines some low-risk, low cost actions you can take across different areas of your business operations right now.
