Welcome to Lambert Roper & Horsfield Limited Accountants in Calderdale


Updated LRH Response to Coronavirus

At LRH the health and wellbeing of our clients and employees is our number one priority.  That is why, following the government’s advice issued on 16th March in respect of social distancing, we have implemented a policy whereby the majority of employees work remotely.

We will endeavour to continue providing all our clients with full support in what is a challenging time for UK businesses.

In order to achieve this we will require the cooperation of our clients in certain areas.

Telephone and email communications

The plans we have put in place should allow us to divert calls to employees at home and they will have full access to emails.

There may be some instances where routing of phone calls does not go to plan.  If this is the case please be patient with us and if the person you are trying to contact is not available send them an email and they will respond when they are able to do so.

Office Access

The office will still be open during the normal working hours so accounting records and other information can still be posted to us and dropped off where necessary.

If you have any symptoms, have come into contact with an infected person or have been told to self-isolate please do not visit our office.

If you do visit our office we would ask that you remember to follow the guidelines issued by the government including keeping a safe distance, washing your hands and please use the hand sanitiser located on reception.

Client meetings

We usually hold the majority of meetings face to face at our office or at our client’s premises.  Following the government’s advice we will be offering telephone meetings and we are looking into other options.  We will contact you to discuss the best solution if we are due to see you.

Work Timescales

Whilst we hope to work as efficiently as before there may be some logistical issues with the review of work and going forward there may be staff absence due to illness.  Therefore we ask that you are patient with us and that you send us your information in as soon as possible, especially when there are deadlines for submission.

We hope that with your help and with the measures we have implemented we will be able to assist you in the coming weeks and months through this challenge.

Chancellor expands Job Support Scheme and grants to businesses facing new COVID-19 restrictions

The Chancellor has announced that the Government will expand the new Job Support Scheme (JSS) to assist jobs and businesses required to close their doors as a result of tougher Coronavirus restrictions.

The announcement was made ahead of new plans to introduce a tier-based system for lockdowns across the country, which could force some businesses to close their doors once again.

The expanded Job Support Scheme

Under the expanded JSS, firms whose premises are legally required to shut for some period over winter as part of local or national restrictions will receive grants to pay the wages of staff who cannot work.

These grants will cover around two-thirds of each employees’ salary (67 per cent), up to a maximum of £2,100 a month.

Employers will not be required to contribute towards wages and will only be asked to pay National Insurance contributions (NICs) and auto-enrolment pension contributions.

The Government has estimated that around half of potential claims are not likely to incur employer NICs or pension contributions at all.

Businesses can only claim a grant where they are subject to a restriction that prevents them from opening and employees must not work for a minimum of seven consecutive days to be eligible.

The new scheme will open on 1 November alongside the other JSS measures announced last month in the Winter Economy Plan. It will be available for up to six months for businesses affected, with a review point in January.

All grant payments will be made in arrears through a dedicated HM Revenue & Customs service, which will be available from early December.

Lockdown grants

As well as expanding the JSS, the Government will also increase the value of cash grants offered to businesses in England forced into lockdown to support them with fixed costs.

Linked to the rateable value of business premises, the increased grants will see payments of up to £3,000 per month, payable every two weeks, instead of up to £1,500 every three weeks.

Under this reformed grant scheme:

  • Small businesses with a rateable value of or below £15,000 can now claim £1,300 per month;
  • medium-sized businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000 can claim £2,000 per month; and
  • larger businesses can claim £3,000.

The Government is also extending this scheme to include businesses that are forced to close on a national basis, such as nightclubs.

Here to help 

Much of these new measures will rely on the Government’s new tiered system for restrictions and may vary over time from one region to the next.

With this being the case, it is important to consider how this affects your business and seek advice at the earliest opportunity. To find out how we can assist you, please contact us.
