Over the course over the past 12 months we have witnessed an extraordinary national response to the coronavirus COVID-19 health crisis. Our policy makers have delivered historic stimulus and relief packages, our healthcare system doubled down, borders have been closed and banks and businesses have bent their efforts towards protecting lives and livelihoods.

Now almost into April and there are positive signs the curve is flattening. However we are in this for the long-haul and with most, if not all, major policy announcements made, businesses can now turn their minds to how they will navigate this new normal.

With specialists across business risk, business continuity, workforce, tax, compliance, supply chain and restructuring, we are here to help. This may be an assessment of your risk and cash flow, identifying alternative suppliers, or preparation for meetings with suppliers, banks or the ATO to access additional support or extensions.

This area on our website is designed to provide you with the tools and resources for you as a business owner to navigate  the uncertain and unchartered waters we are now facing.

Focus your business recovery response on these six key areas...
