Roadmap Taskforces

Further details of the five new ministerial-led taskforces that have been set up to develop plans for how and when closed sectors can reopen safely, following publication of the UK's roadmap to rebuild Britain.

Businesses and venues that must remain closed  and those that can open to members of the public

The Government guidance on business closures has also been updated to reflect the new roadmap.

Safer public places - urban centres and green spaces

Government guidance has been developed in consultation with industry, Public Health England and the Health & Safety Executive, to help ensure that workplaces are as safe as possible.

Trade Credit Insurance 

The government will temporarily guarantee business-to-business transactions currently supported by Trade Credit Insurance, ensuring the majority of insurance coverage will be maintained across the market. This will support supply chains and help businesses to trade with confidence as they can trust that they will be protected if a customer defaults on payment.

Holiday entitlement and pay

An explanation of how holiday entitlement and pay operate during the coronavirus pandemic, where it differs from the standard holiday entitlement and pay guidance. This guidance applies to those that have continued to work as well as those that have been furloughed.  

Self-Employment Income Support Scheme

The Self-Employment Income Support Scheme went live yesterday so self-employed individuals or members of partnerships whose business has been adversely affected by coronavirus can apply for a grant worth 80% of their average monthly trading profits, up to a maximum of £7,500, paid in a single instalment. You can check eligibility using the link above. 

Safer Transport Toolkit

As people are starting to return to work, we have created a Safer Transport toolkit for stakeholders to share to help inform the public on the necessary steps they should be taking to stay safe when they travel using any form of transport.
