Free financial and legal advice: COVID-19 support for small businesses

News story
Wednesday 1 Apr 2020

Following recent announcements about financial help and support available for businesses impacted by COVID-19, we know some businesses have questions as they try to work out which course of action is the right one for them. 

At this uncertain time, we want to make this process a little easier by helping businesses
get access to financial and legal advice. 

We are working with two firms with offices in the city centre, Grant Thornton and Buddle Findlay, who have offered to assist with some legal and accounting advice for small city centre businesses in need of guidance during the four-week lockdown period.

If you are a customer-facing business, located in the Heart of the City boundary, with a turnover of less than $500,000 p.a., you can apply to get up to an hour of free accounting or legal advice. Please call us on 09 379 8000 or email info@hotcity.co.nz to apply. There is a limited amount of time available but we hope this will provide an extra helping hand to some small businesses that need it right now.
