COVID-19 Advice

Here you'll find useful information regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. We will keep you updated as and when the latest advice from the government becomes available.

Having spoken to insurers there is currently no 'industry position' on whether loss of earnings would be covered by a salon policy. However, this is likely to change as the outbreak continues, so we'll update you as and when this happens. 

Advice for employers and employees

We've received lots of calls from members regarding how they can best deal with COVID-19, and so if you'd like more information or would like to talk through your approach, please pick up the phone.

HMRC Helpline

The dedicated HMRC helpline for businesses and self-employed individuals who have difficulty with paying their tax due to COVID-19 promised at Budget 2020 is now in operation. The number of the helpline is 0800 0159 559.

The helpline can assist with:

  • Setting up a time to pay arrangement
  • Suspending debt collection proceedings, and
  • Cancelling late payment penalties and (unusually) interest

2,000 experienced HMRC staff are available on the helpline, but it is not completely clear whether this is additional resource or a deployment.
