Covid-19 measures

,

Dear Clients,

Due to daily changes regarding Covid-19 situation, we would like to ask for your attention and cooperation in order to reduce the risk of infection to a minimum.

We are a bookkeeping, financial and advisory services provider to a large number of clients. Documents are being delivered to our office daily, meetings are held, and 10 of us are working at the office, so we believe there is a slight risk of virus transmission. In order to reduce the risk in the coming days, we suggest that you deliver business documentation and provide all information via email, telephone, messages, cloud service and other methods of contactless transfer.

In any case, we are fully at your disposal as always. The office will continue to work from 9am to 5pm, as usual, and should the situation change, we will be free to notify you immediately.
In the next possible phase, we may organize work from home, which we are already prepared for, in order to provide continuity of services.

We remain at your disposal for all arrangements. Please let us know if the situation in your offices and personal status changes, so that we can respond to the change in a timely manner.

We wish you good health and to remain “corona-virus-free”!
