Flex Space Association Requests More Government Assistance
The Flexible Space Association has submitted a request to the Parliamentary Treasury Committee calling for views from stakeholders on whether the government is responding to the coronavirus outbreak sufficiently.
“In the last week, the sector has found itself hit very hard by Coronavirus outbreak,” the submission read. “Many businesses have vacated their workspace to work from home, and flexible workspace operators of all sizes are seeing large numbers of their customers requesting a holiday from their rent for the duration of the crisis, or immediate termination of their licence agreements for their space.”
The request calls for the industry to be included in the Business Rates ‘holiday’ scheme, which applies to the retail and hospitality sectors.
