The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about a very difficult and extraordinary
business environment. It is forcing countless small businesses to focus on
key business concerns more than ever before. Therefore a new checklist has
been added to the Business Compliance documents this month.
This new Covid-19 Business Continuity Action Checklist is specifically
designed to address the effects of Covid-19 on sole traders and other small
This Checklist provides a good starting point for a small business that is
suffering business interruption or decline (or is likely to) due to
Covid-19. It seeks to identify, describe and comment on a number of
particular problems and threats that many businesses are likely to be
facing at the moment or in the near future. It addresses how you might try
to counter various actual and emerging Covid-19 related threats to
profitability, stability and viability.
The Checklist has been especially designed for a business with few or no
employees which operates from a single set of dedicated business premises,
typically a sole trader or small company. However, you might find that
part/s of the Checklist are also useful to you if you are running a larger
business or some other type of organisation.
The Checklist is a tool that you can use in conjunction with the more
general Business Continuity Checklist which can also be found in the
Business Compliance subfolder.
Once you have purchased access to the appropriate document folder click on

of your choice prior to viewing.
