Oxford Innovation’s Access to Finance programme will deliver a series of Covid-19 Support webinars aimed at any business owner or entrepreneur who needs guidance on the finance options available to them during the current crisis.

The first of these open sessions is taking place tomorrow (April 17) at 10:30am and will last for 1.5 hours. Access to Finance programme manager Heather Coupland will be joined by business finance specialists Gregg Harding and John Whittaker to talk in-depth about:

  • The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS)
  • General cashflow advice and VAT & tax breaks
  • Business rate grants
  • Furloughing staff
  • Self-employed grants

The webinar is fully interactive, so the team will be taking live questions from attendees about their specific business needs during the session.
