Covid-19 / Coronavirus Update 
 
This week we have seen many factories and businesses return to work following the extended Lunar New Year holidays due to the Covid-19 / Coronavirus outbreak. Although many factories and businesses have returned to work, there are still areas that remain closed and those that are working, are doing so at a reduced capacity as they are short staffed due to travel restrictions still in place.

Get ready for Brexit 
 
The UK Government have announced that the UK will leave the European Union "come what may" on the 31st October. Whilst this has been fiercely debated in Parliament over the past week with calls for an extension to Article 50, the Prime Minister has stated he will not ask for an extension. 
 
We understand that our customers may well be feeling confused about what direction the UK is going in and whether there will be a deal agreed or whether the UK will leave with a no deal on the 31st October. 
 
There has been very little information published about how to prepare for Brexit until now.......
