Has Government COVID-19 Restrictions on Non-Essential Businesses Effected your Business?
Do you own a business that has been effected by recent government restrictions on social gatherings and/or government orders to close non-essential businesses?
For example, perhaps you are the owner of a restaurant, a pub, a café, a nightclub or a reception and are uncertain where you stand legally and where to turn from here?
If your business is effected by the recent government bans, you will need to consider issues such as the following:
Whether your business may legally continue to operate and, if so, the ways in which your business might be able to continue to legally operate while these bans remain in place.
If you have customers wanting to cancel their bookings with your business as a result of the recent bans, issues such as the following:
In what circumstances can you refuse to cancel the booking?
Can you require the customer to reschedule their booking to another date, as opposed to accepting the cancellation?
If the customer has paid a deposit and/or a part payment in respect of the booking, are you able to keep this money or do you have to refund it to the customer?
