Emergency Funding and Grants Webinar with Manchester City Council, KPMG, and NRB
The past months have been an exceptionally difficult period for our region, but despite the challenges facing the hospitality sector, you have done an incredible job, showcasing creativity, determination and resilience. As we continue trying to navigate through all the uncertainty, we would like to offer our continued support for your business and the hospitality and leisure sector as a whole.
I would therefore like to invite you to attend a workshop on Monday 1st February at 4:00pm for hospitality, hotel, restaurant and bar operators across the North West co-hosted by KPMG, Manchester City Council and NRB CEO Thom Hetherington.
The purpose of the session is to provide clarity and detail in relation to the emergency funding and grants currently available to you, together with detail on eligibility criteria and the wider application process. The latest HMRC guidance in relation to JRS will also be covered as part of the agenda, along with an update on working capital optimisation and the Insurance policy judgement.
The speakers, in running order, are:
- Jon Meeten, KPMG Tax Partner based in Manchester, who will be discussing the key features of the current JRS scheme and sharing experience of how KPMG are supporting clients particularly around interaction with HMRC.
- Jane Chadwick and Simon Mower, KPMG Directors, will provide an update on the current debt financing markets, an overview of the Government support programmes and insight into how best to approach your existing lenders, if required.
- Sara Smith, Director in KPMG’s Forensic practice, will provide a brief update in relation to the recent Supreme Court judgment in respect of business interruption insurance claims. KPMG can help you formulate and quantify business interruption insurance claims arising from a range of insured events.
- Charles Metcalfe, Head of Corporate Revenues at Manchester City Council, will be talking about the expanded retail discount and the Local Restrictions Support Grant scheme introduced in October 2020.
We have also allowed time for Q&A, so please let us know what burning issues you are currently facing and we will ask the team to update, as appropriate.
In the meantime, please do let us know if you want to talk through any concerns. If you feel that a discussion on cash forecasting and working capital optimisation would be helpful, again, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to jump on a call.
