WHAT IS SME: SOS?
I know that it all feels a little upside down right now still but I wanted to reach out and connect with you all!
As we all know, small & medium businesses make up 99.9% of all private sector businesses in the UK, but they are under threat, now more than ever.
With this in mind I have launched SME: SOS as a free resource to empower small businesses with the latest information & highlight the help available to them. This is a platform to make sure that you do not feel alone through this tumultuous time.
I’ll be talking to the community every day through my Instagram & will be feeding back the urgent needs of SMEs to the Government, on what more they can do. I am virtually right next to you,
HOW BEST TO CLAIM SUPPORT
Rightly so, there’s been so much talk about how and if small business founders are eligible for the Government’s schemes. So I am here to demystify it all, make sure that you get clued up on all key things you should.
This is a guide to the Self Employment Scheme and how best to claim support, from the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme to Universal Credit and how to defer income tax payments.
And remember, the Government wants you to claim – it’s not trying to catch you out!
HOW TO CREATE A NEW ROUTINE
One of the biggest changes in our lives has occurred and the nation has been sent home to work!
With this, I have collated my best working from home tips. From creating a new routine and curating a happy desk space to pushing yourself to achieve that dreaded admin and some tools that may help.
We all know that working from home will be our everyday soon, so I wanted to share with you a few tips to help us all find our way.
With thanks to our partners for helping us to bring SME: SOS to life…
