Walkers Professional Services COVID-19 Response

We know the pandemic is challenging for all. As you would expect, Walkers Professional Services (“WPS”) puts the health and safety of our people, clients and the community at large first.

We are working collaboratively with clients and industry partners. It is business as usual at WPS with the exception of more staff working remotely than would ordinarily do so under our typical agile working processes.

Office Locations and Business Services
We have implemented working arrangements to protect our staff and communities and we are confident there will be no interruption to client services provided by our teams in each of our global offices. Our remote working capability is robust, well tested and working very effectively.

Business Travel and Meetings
All business and client related travel has been deferred as part of our interim travel protocol. All in-person meetings (for both clients and internal staff) have been moved to take place online, via phone calls and videoconferencing and we will be pleased to arrange these with you as needed.

 

Cayman Islands Government (“CIG”) Services
Postal Services
The CIG announced that international mail services will be suspended between 23 March and 13 April 2020 (see announcement). Along with similar Government service announcements globally, we recommend clients reach out to counter parties directly to request all documents be sent by email.

ROC and DITC
Both the CIG’s Registrar of Companies (“ROC”) and The Department for International Tax Cooperation (“DITC”) are following Government’s policy and activating business continuity plans during the COVID-19 pandemic (see respective announcements for ROC and DITC).
