CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) – Updated 26 June 2020

Omnia remain committed to keeping our clients and workers up to date with the latest information.  We will regularly update this page with links / information to help companies and individuals.

Omnia staff are gradually returning to work, our focus continues to be their safety; to help them work safely and with peace of mind, we have conducted a risk assessment, available to download Covid-19 Office Risk Assessment.

The government continue to offer support for the UK workforce during the present crisis.   Government Business Support

As with all businesses, we continue to feel the impact ourselves; however, we continue to support our clients and contractors as much as we can.  Here are some of the ways we are working to help:

  • For Contractors still working – it is business as usual, we have increased our telephone answering hours from 9am to 3pm and continually review this, we hope to be back to full hours shortly when we can increase our resources.
  • For Contractors laid off due to Coronavirus – the support available depends on your engagement as follows;
  • Self Employed Contractors – the Self Employed Income Support Scheme  (SEISS) currently allows you to claim a taxable grant worth 80% of your average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering 3 months’ worth of profits, and capped at £7,500 in total.
  • PAYE (Umbrella) Contractors – the government  Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) will cease to be paid from 31 July 2020 even if you have not returned to work.
  • Limited Companies (Personal Service Companies) – presently there is no direct support for Limited Company Contractors unless they qualify personally through one of the other options (SEISS or CJRS).  Unfortunately, we will be unable to assist with any payment in respect of these workers.
