The impact of COVID19 will not be same across all businesses.  Established businesses, larger practices, well capitalised practices with low gearing will be better placed to weather any storm, including this one.  Young businesses, start ups, highly geared businesses and ones with significant borrowing will be more vulnerable.

The impact will not be same for each owner in the businesses. Their personal financial positions will vary. Some owners may have good personal assets levels and minimal debt whereas others may have limited cash reserves and high personal borrowing. Their ability to cushion any financial blow, drop in income or suffer a cash flow challenge will be very different.  This may drive different agendas within the business.

All your employees will also be facing similar challenges to their own personal financial positions.
