Welcome to the July 2021 second issue of our newsletter.

July 2021 - Issue 2


As England has now moved to Step 4 of the roadmap nearly all restrictions are lifted. However, the Government is advising that while cases are high and rising, everybody needs to continue to act carefully and remain cautious. For the full list of changes see: COVID-19 Response: Summer 2021 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Many businesses are certainly starting to “bounce-back” and we expect this growth to continue.

Our business team can provide advice and support to help you maximise the opportunities and reach your business goals, as demonstrated by our latest case study https://www.peplows.co.uk/about-us/client-stories

We will continue to provide a roundup of the latest COVID-19 news as well as focusing on tax saving advice and business support. Please contact us if you want to talk about how these updates affect your business.
