Where possible we ask that:
- All payments should be made by BACS and not Cheques.

This is an unprecedented situation, and we will continue to closely monitor and comply with official advice whilst ensuring we provide a normal service in the event that staff become ill or need to self-isolate.

Our arrangements for trading in the EU
The UK left the European Union in January 2020 and we are now operating in the planned 11-month transition period, during which the UK ceased to be an EU member but EU insurance laws and regulations continue to apply.
At the end of the transition period, currently scheduled for 31 December 2020, all UK registered insurance intermediaries will lose their automatic rights under EU law to provide services to EU clients. We have therefore taken steps to ensure that our clients with EU risks will continue to be looked after as seamlessly as possible.
Global Risk Partners Intermediary Limited (registered in Ireland with company number 635016) like Cavendish Munro is part of the GRP Group and is registered as an insurance intermediary in the Republic of Ireland. Through the involvement of Global Risk Partners Intermediary Limited our team will continue to be able to assist clients with their current and future insurance needs in the EU, providing the same high standards of service as always. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about these arrangements.

IMPORTANT COVID 19 CLAIM NEWS
Friday 15th January The Supreme Court upheld the judgement on the Financial Conduct Authority’s business interruption test case.
Please refer FCA website link : Supreme Court judgment in FCA’s business interruption insurance test case | FCA
Whilst we welcome the Supreme Court judgement in favour of the FCA and policyholders it does not mean that all Covid 19 BI claims will automatically be settled. In addition the ruling only applied to ambiguous wordings and therefore the majority of insurer wordings will still provide no cover for the pandemic.
The next step is the further review of each claim on its own merits. That review is being conducted by insurers and we are actively engaging with them at a senior level to ensure this is done as quickly as possible.
