Over the past weeks, various support packages have been announced by the Government to help businesses combat financial problems caused by COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown, and to ultimately help them survive the uncertainty of the months ahead. 

Despite the support that has been put forward by the Government, some businesses have been left disgruntled by the uncertainty surrounding what schemes and initiatives they could actually benefit from. However, a new tool now available on the gov.uk website should now allow companies to establish what help they are entitled to more easily.

By answering a series of questions about the company (such as where the company is based, and how many employees it has), the system will produce a list of all the schemes available to the business, clearing up any uncertainty as to what a business is able to claim.
