March 2020: Important Update — SBA Response to the Coronavirus
To our clients,
At Soukup, Bush & Associates, we are keenly aware of the potential impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) to our clients, our team and to the community. We are taking steps to provide for the continuity of our client services and the safety of our employees and clients as we navigate through the uncertainly of the outbreak.
We are staying up-to-date on the latest developments. The actions we are taking include monitoring resources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the World Health Organization; the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA); and our local public health department.
As you know, this is one of the busiest times of the year for firms with tax filings and financial statement regulatory deadlines rapidly approaching. Disaster preparedness is an integral part of our firm’s risk management program and includes a viable pandemic response plan. Below are some of the features of the plan and the actions we are taking:
- Understanding the risk: This is a rapidly evolving situation, and we are monitoring reports from the CDC and other health agencies to enhance our knowledge and understanding of the spread of the coronavirus. We are tracking regional transmission in affected areas, and are actively taking steps to support our employees, clients, and our surrounding communities.
- Ensuring access to our firm: Based on current guidance, to protect the health of our team and to ensure that we can continue to provide you the best service possible, we have made the decision to operate remotely. If you wish to meet with us, we ask that you call or email to schedule an appointment via telephone or Zoom conference. If you need to provide documents to us, we ask that you upload them to our secure portal. Here is the address – https://us.casewarecloud.com/soukupbush/webapps/#login. If you have not used, or are not familiar with our portal, please email us and we will email you log in and access instructions. We remain committed to maintaining our firm’s quality control standards.
Our top priorities are the health and safety of our employees and clients. We will continue to monitor guidance from health experts and government recommendations and will do our very best to maintain the quality and timeliness of our services to you. We appreciate your flexibility and support during this time, and our thoughts remain with everyone affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
