Keeping our Clients and Staff Safe

The spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to dominate the news, with major implications for public health and the NHS. We are monitoring developments closely and have also put in place sensible measures to ensure that Alexander Sloan is well prepared.

We want to reassure you that in respect of the spread of COVID-19 outbreak we are focused on two things: the health and welfare of both our clients and staff, and our ability to continue to support clients in all scenarios. We are therefore writing to share with you some of the specific actions that we have taken. 

Operational Resilience

As I’m sure is the case at your business, Alexander Sloan has invested in technology and infrastructure to ensure that the business is both robust and adaptable to be able to cope with significant and potentially disruptive events. Most staff are working from home and all staff can remotely access our systems within a secure IT environment. Direct dial phone numbers have also been redirected to our mobile phones. We are still able to conduct external and internal audits through the use of technology.

Employee and client safety

The health, safety and well-being of our staff and clients is of paramount importance to us. We are therefore closely monitoring and implementing official guidelines from the Government and health organisations in respect of COVID-19. Specific actions taken include:

  • Working from home
  • We have asked staff to reduce business and personal travel to a minimum. 

With all businesses in the UK facing the same uncertainty, supporting our clients is our core priority. Our team is ready to provide you with quick and up to date advice on all your Banking, Working Capital, Cashflow, Tax, and payroll queries and concerns.

These are truly unprecedented times and Alexander Sloan is here to help you. We are at the other end of the telephone on 0141 204 8989 or feel free to email your usual contact at the firm when you need us.
