ADVICE DURING COVID19 PANDEMIC 2020

 

JPAG writes a letter to clarify queries on the Practitioners' Guide during COVID19 Pandemic (17JUL20) "Please note that electors do still have the right to inspect the Accounts ‘in person’. Therefore should anyone insist on a physical inspection, you will need to make the appropriate arrangements and follow the latest government guidelines with respect to social distancing etc. Many public offices and buildings are now geared up and able to operate, whilst ensuring appropriate distancing" (PDF)
