At Silberman Langner Associates, we are keenly aware of the potential impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are taking steps to provide for the continuity of our client services and the safety of our employees and clients as we navigate through the uncertainly of the outbreak.
As you know, this is one of the busiest times of the year for accounting firms with tax filings and financial statement regulatory deadlines rapidly approaching. Based on current guidance and our own standards and practices, our office currently has no plans to shut down and will remain open and accessible, with limitations. Below are some of the actions we are taking:
We have frequent communications with our employees, which include instructing them to stay home if they feel sick, the benefits of social distancing, and reminders about proper hygiene and other mitigations strategies.
We are currently not taking in person appointments nor accepting or transmitting information in person. We request that until further notice, information be mailed to our offices or sent electronically.
Our firm is also prepared in the event we need to operate from outside of our office with the necessary equipment, as well as backup systems and technical support, that will allow our workforce to work remotely in compliance with our Disaster Recovery Plan and other policies. We remain committed to maintaining our firm’s quality control standards.
Our top priorities are the health and safety of our employees and clients. We will continue to monitor guidance from health experts and government recommendations and will do our very best to maintain the quality and timeliness of our services to you. We appreciate your flexibility and support during this time, and our thoughts remain with everyone affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
