Commenting on temporary measures announced by Business Secretary Alok Sharma on 23 April to safeguard businesses against aggressive debt recovery actions during the coronavirus pandemic, BCC Head of People Policy Jane Gratton said:

“At a time when cashflow is a significant concern for so many firms, more time and flexibility to pay will provide welcome relief for employers who are unable to pay rents and are struggling to reach agreement with landlords over deferment.

“Many businesses are still urgently trying to access grants and funding support. The government must continue to work quickly to ensure that money gets to the frontline as soon as possible in what is a crunch week for business communities.”
