For some individuals and businesses, the current crisis might provide an opportunity to complete tax affairs and other account and bookkeeping tasks.
RNS Chartered Accountants and RNS Independent Financial Advisers remain open for business, providing the necessary support during these unprecedented times.
Partners, managers and the team are working remotely, connecting with each other and clients via phone, email and video conferencing.
Senior partner John Heeney said: “These are difficult times for individuals and businesses and we are determined to provide them with the best possible customer service.
“The offices are being manned by a skeleton staff, with partners on rotation to ensure, for example, any incoming or outgoing post is dealt with appropriately.”
Clients who wish to drop off documents which won't fit through a letterbox should call the office on the usual numbers (01724 842713 or 01652 655111) and arrangements will be made for them to be received or collected.
Mr Heeney said: “It's the start of a new tax year and it might be clients have more time to sort out information for returns.
“We are happy to complete them earlier than might ordinarily be the case.
“There may also be issues which have arisen because of the coronavirus outbreak, for instance around grants, loans and cashflow.
“Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you feel we can help.”
The office numbers are Scunthorpe (01724 842713) and Brigg and Barton (01652 655111) or email email@example.com and, for our independent financial advice service firstname.lastname@example.org
