Business Support

The UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has launched a dedicated business support helpline, where small business owners in England can get advice on how to minimise/cope with the impacts of coronavirus. The number is 0300 456 3565. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm. You can also email enquiries@businesssupporthelpline.org.

Tax Helpline

A helpline has been set up to help businesses and self-employed individuals with tax liabilities receive support with their tax affairs. Through this, businesses may be able to agree a bespoke ‘time to pay’ arrangement. If you are concerned about being able to pay your tax as a result of COVID-19, call HMRC’s helpline on 0800 0159 559.

The Fabulous Group

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak and government guidance, The Fabulous Group has moved to a working from home, where possible, status.

The necessary infrastructure and Business Continuity Plans have been put in place and the team has been equipped appropriately, we are confident that we can therefore continue our service as normal.  All face to face meetings will be kept to a minimum unless essential and instead, video meetings will be arranged. In addition, any business or social events planned or being planned have also been put on hold.

If you wish to get in touch with us please call 0800 112 0880 or email hello@fabgroupco.com. We are keen to support as many businesses and their owners as we can.
