CURRENT TRADING POSITION
There has been no alteration at all in our position. In other words, the retail shop is still closed and we are very, very busy sending out mail order parcels.
I am sure you will all have read how the Government is helping small businesses, such as ours, in allowances. We have received nothing at all. The Government said we would not have to pay our VAT now, but they have taken this out of our bank. We are going to be allowed a period of free business rates, but they have taken these also out of our bank account, and we have applied for a £10000 grant towards help in keep our business afloat. Although this has been applied for. We have received nothing.
As a good company we have made sure our staff have kept their jobs Where is this help?
Luckily we can survive, even if this is not forthcoming, but the directors will finance this out of their own pockets. Just to let you know we are doing our best in difficult circumstances.
