On the 20th April, the government launched a new coronavirus business support finder tool. Whilst we’ve kept you updated on all of the business support measures introduced in recent weeks through our Coronavirus index, this new facility enables you to quickly check that you’ve taken full advantage of all the support that is available.

Simply go to https://www.gov.uk/business-coronavirus-support-finder and follow the on screen questions – it will only take a few minutes, and might just highlight something that has been overlooked in the information that we have shared with you in recent weeks.
