Campaigning on support for company directors and owners affected by Covid-19
Following on from ACCA’ s positioning with government around the issue of company directors and Covid-19 business support, we are working with Forgotten Ltd campaign to promote the need for comparable support for company directors facing business disruption as a result of Covid-19.
With Forgotten Ltd and leading industry figures we will schedule engagement throughout July with senior MPs to develop understanding and recommendations for an inclusive business recovery policy package. More details on the Forgotten Ltd Campaign, with links to a parliamentary petition and template MP engagement letters can be found here.
ACCA will continue to advocate for support for businesses on the basis of their function as economic actors, rather than their legal form or method of remuneration. Government should consider how support packages going forward will be replicated for directors of SME incorporated entities on a comparable level to those for employees and the self-employed.
Member feedback on this issue has been valuable and ACCA welcomes continued member feedback and case studies at UKPolicy@accaglobal.com
