They have amended their guidance to reflect the extension of the following provisions:

  • the additional temporary moratorium provisions for coronavirus are being extended until 30 September 2021
  • limiting termination clauses in supply contracts, to provide for continuity of supplies so companies and CIOs can carry on operating. The additional temporary exemption for small entity suppliers during coronavirus have been extended until 30 June 2021
  • temporary suspension of the use of statutory demands and the restriction on winding up petitions where a company or CIO cannot pay its bills due to the coronavirus emergency. These provisions have been extended until 30 June 2021
