Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of the UK’s leading independent firms of chartered accountants and business advisors, has been collaborating with the Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC) to deliver a series of webinars aimed at helping businesses to mitigate the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As supporters of the SBRC, AAB has been providing input to the webinars from an accountancy perspective throughout the series. The webinars provide a platform for Scotland’s top business leaders, including senior members of AAB’s dedicated COVID-19 support team, to answer questions and offer advice directly to business owners, with topics including:
- Proactive steps to protect your business
- COVID-19 and Venture Capital
- Leadership and people
- Impact on the employed, self-employed, government support schemes and insolvency
AAB’s COVID-19 support team is led by Managing Partner (Edinburgh) and Head of Central Belt Deals, Lyn Calder. The team was formed as a result of the current situation and the changing support requirements of businesses and includes members of AAB’s corporate finance, restructuring, payroll and employment taxes teams. The AAB team, each with a wealth of expertise in their respective fields, has been on hand during relevant webinars to offer free, practical advice on the steps that businesses can take right now to improve their chances of survival.
AAB’s Lyn Calder, said: “Whilst these are uncertain times, there are a number of key areas businesses should consider, and various proactive steps they can take to mitigate impact. The SBRC is actively trying to bring businesses together to collaborate for the greater good of the business community, and we are here to assist in any way we can. AAB sees this very much as a partnership; we are all in this together and we are here to support businesses through these challenging times.
“The material remains available to everyone online. We plan to continue our working with SBRC on future webinars and initiatives, and by providing further support and guidance to the business community.”
Jude McCorry, CEO of SBRC added: “We have established this cross-industry group to help people navigate this strange new world and prepare for a different way of being in business. We are not going to sit back and watch companies fail who could have survived if they had some sort of mentoring, practical advice or simply a confidence boost to keep going. This board will continue to help give every business a fighting chance, but to also have a solid network so that if they have to fail, that they do so among friends and feel supported.”
