#1 consideration before anything else… Stay healthy and make sure your loved ones are too!!
#2 We’re here to help!
We are in unprecedented times at the moment with the constantly changing Coronovirus situation. We will use this page to post our latest updates and information that may be important for your business.
Health and well-being are the most important things right now and so we have made the decision that our team will be working remotely from Wednesday 18th March for the foreseeable future. However, with the wonder of technology we can assure you that our services will continue as normal, all of our client work will still be done, and all deadlines will be met. There may be a few bumps in the road, and different ways of achieving things, but, we will make sure things get done as they should be.
We will pop into the office, may be twice a week, to check the post so feel free to drop paperwork through the door if necessary. However, where possible we would encourage clients to scan it in via their portal. The portal is a safe and secure way of exchanging documents and is also efficient for you to sign official documents to be submitted.
We will be checking our voicemail daily, however, the best way to keep in contact with us will be via e-mail. If you have a question or would like information just drop an e-mail to your usual Cedar + Co. contact or to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will give you a call back or answer via e-mail. We cannot guarantee a response from any message left on the answer machine, so, please email.
These measures are being put into place to protect you and our team. If you need anything let us know. Our business depends on your business and we must all pull together during the next few weeks.

It will continue for at least three months, and can include workers who were in employment on 28 February.
