The coronavirus outbreak has seen a huge rise in benefit claims, and a range of new measures and changes to existing benefits. For advisers, it can be hard to keep up with the pace of change. This new course will help you get to grips with these changes.
The course covers:
• The main changes to benefits which have been introduced in response to the coronavirus outbreak
• How the new schemes, such as furloughing and the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme, interact with the benefit system
