Here for you

We know you’re busy but that some of you will be worried about the potential financial challenges that COVID-19 may bring, so we wanted to write a quick message to offer our support during these difficult times.

Please know that we are here to help.

The banks now have facilities and schemes open to them to support businesses during this crisis, including three-month mortgage repayment holidays. We’re keeping up to date with these schemes and the lending appetites of all the banks and alternative lenders through regular telephone dialogue with our key contacts. Other financial support is available from the Government via local authorities . You can find out more about Government, bank and farming support on our Coronavirus: financial support for farms and rural businesses page.

If you need help to complete applications to access bank schemes, we can assist. If you find you are not eligible, your bank can’t support you or you are at all concerned, the sooner you get in touch with us, the quicker you can get help to ease any financial pressures.

The R&BS team are all available to listen to your situation and can offer advice on what banks, lenders and options are available and the steps you can put in place to see you through these tough times and beyond.

We’re easy to contact

We’re here for you whenever you need us and are just a phone call or click away. Our consultants have always worked remotely, so service is as normal for us. You can reach the team on their mobile number or direct email address, and any enquiries to our landlines, hello@ and enquiries@ emails will get picked up. We’re also able to hold video-conference calls over the internet by arrangement.

Keeping in touch and staying connected is going to be important at a time like this. Please don’t hesitate to contact any of us if you have any questions or concerns.

Take care of yourselves and your communities,

Rob Lister & Jim Richards

Directors, R&BS
