Covid-19 Coronavirus

Coronavirus is a worldwide pandemic and is continuing to affect millions of individuals and businesses. These are uncertain and unprecedented times but we want to continue to support our clients the best we can. Together, we can get through this.

We will be updating this page when the UK Government announce new measures to tackle the virus or how they will support people and businesses.

We will be keeping you informed in general terms but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

With effect from Monday 6 July 2020 HFP are pleased to announce we have re-opened our offices for our colleagues in a safe and secure manner after following the government guidelines set out for employers. 

However, please do not visit our offices but if you want a meeting we can complete this using telephone, Zoom or Microsoft TEAMS. In some circumstances with both yours and our agreement, we may be able to meet at your home provided it is safe to do so. We can also share documents via our portal.

Please contact us in the usual way using either office telephone number or email.

If you need any help or advice , please get in touch with your usual HFP contact. We are here to support you through these tough times.

Stay safe, be kind and we will get through this together.

Genuine HMRC contact and recognising phishing emails and texts

Please be aware of phishing or bogus emails and text messages. Phishing is the fraudulent act of emailing a person to get their personal or financial information. These emails often include a link to a bogus website encouraging you to enter your personal details. This guidance from HMRC explains how to recognise genuine contact from HMRC, and how to tell when an email or text message is phishing or bogus.
