Specialist business support

When problems arise

As a result of the pandemic, more and more businesses are finding themselves in difficulties. 

If you feel your business is getting into financial difficulties, contact the Stoke and Staffordshire business helpline as soon as possible to be put in contact with organisations that may be able to help you. 

If you are struggling to pay rent, talk to your landlord as soon as you realise this is an issue - they may be willing to offer more favourable terms. For issues with rates contact the Council's business rates team. 

In the worst case, if you are considering insolvency, look at the advice from the Insolvency Service. The Law Donut site also has concise information about the questions you need to be considering
