Guidance for contractors following COVID-19 restrictions

Many contractors initially stopped trading early on in the first COVID-19 lockdown, but soon many essential trades were allowed to continue trading with essential worker status.

At our Insight Hub, we have advice and guidance to help you as you look at getting back to business as COVID-19 measures begin to ease.
