COVID-19 Hub

COVID-19 Hub

TC Group is here to support you and your business through these unprecedented times. Our COVID-19 Hub is an information resource and place to find answers to the most important questions, enabling you to keep your business operational during this challenging period. Inside, you will find useful details on Government support for businesses and individuals as well as a wide range of practical advice from our specialists in each of the key areas where you may need assistance. 

Client Services

Please note our physical premises are now closed. Although we have adapted our processes, we continue to manage our post daily, and you should experience minimal to no disruption to our handling and response times. All other services are continuing as normal. Most staff now work from home, and we will ensure that we continue to support you in the usual way via calls, emails and video conferencing.

Increased Fraud Risk

Fraudsters are taking advantage of the uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus to target potential victims. Please take all necessary steps to ensure you are not one of them. Full Government guidance can be found here. Wherever possible you should send documents and transfer money electronically, rather than sending forms and cheques in the post. It is also important to be vigilant when it comes to making transactions online.
