Haines Watts has revealed that its firms across the North East, Yorkshire and Humber regions have helped business owners to secure almost £11m in support amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
According to the accountancy firm, around £9m of this figure was secured through business support measures, such as the government-backed Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme and Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
The group helped businesses to secure a further £2m in tax incentives and reliefs over the recent months.
The firm said that as well as helping businesses to access government grants and loans during the pandemic, it has continued to offer “insights and expert advice” through its online Covid-19 hub.
North East and Yorkshire managing partner, Donna Bulmer, said: “The last few months have been incredibly testing times for businesses in our region and across the country.
“We’ve been working hard to support our clients and I’m really proud of what our team has achieved so far. We’re looking forward to continuing to support our clients and their businesses, as we look to enter the recovery phase.”
Humber managing partner, Jennifer Toulson said: “I’m thrilled that we have been able to help businesses access new forms of funding during these uncertain times.
“The amount we have managed to achieve in such a short frame of time is a true reflection of the hard work our teams have been putting in, across the regions”.
