AccountingWEB Live | Coronavirus Response Q&A

One of the things we've learned from the AccountingWEB community is the importance of collaboration and sharing useful information. This has never been truer than during the current coronavirus crisis

That's why we launched a new weekly AccountingWEB Live | Coronavirus Response Q&A webinar last Wednesday. It's free, non-commercial place for accountants to share experiences, advice and practical tips to help safeguard their businesses, support their teams and help their clients. 

You can register here and email any questions or suggested discussion points direct to us at [email protected]. Our inboxes are overflowing at the moment so please mark your email 'Coronavirus Response Q&A'

Our Accounting Excellence ambassador Rebecca Benneyworth, Glenn Martin of Avery Martin and Lucy Cohen from Mazuma joined us for the first session to discuss the burning issues of the moment on Wednesday 29th. 

Next week's webinar is on Wednesday, 8 April at 9am. We are delighted to welcome back our Accounting Excellence ambassador Rebecca Benneyworth to answer your questions on the Self Employed Income Support scheme and Victoria Todd from the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group (LITRG), who will explain what's involved if you need to help clients claim universal credit.

Here are the full details from last week's session:
