What to expect in 2022

What to expect in 2022

Andrew Coldwell

We are now almost two years into the COVID-19 pandemic and as a community we are still battling against the many (and increasing) variants of the virus. With the Omicron infection numbers rising throughout the UK, the Moore UK offices have taken actions to protect our staff and clients.

With our experience of the past two years of anxiety and disruption, adaptability is a key ability due to the ever-changing environment we find ourselves in. We have created a tactics blog which contains suggestions on what you are able to do should more restrictions come into place in the New Year. You can also find updates on our Coronavirus Hub.

Due to the need to safeguard our overstretched but persevering NHS,  entertainment and hospitality trades will once again be asked to bear the brunt of COVID-19 related disruption strategies. This will be an increasing fear for many business owners who were already hesitant about the year ahead as shown in Moore UK’s latest Owner Managed Business Pulse Survey.

We are all waiting with bated breath to see if the Government is going to announce furlough or similar grants to help support affected small business employers and the self-employed. We will of course be communicating any support schemes through our Coronavirus Hub and via our social media channels or you can connect with us on LinkedIn.

With inflation rising, currently 5.1%, Rishi Sunak will be scratching his head as printing money to fund further support is directly opposite to his Autumn Budget claims that he is now focussed on repaying government debt, and this largesse could fuel further inflationary pressures.

Resilience needs to be a worthwhile goal for 2022 but will need to be partnered alongside realism. Moore will always do its utmost to support clients as shown during the past 2 years where we worked tirelessly alongside them to ensure they achieved the best possible outcome from varying, challenging situations.
