Dear Sir/Madam

Account No:

I am writing to tell you that I am getting advice from Business Debtline on dealing with my financial situation and choosing the right debt solution for me.

As a result of the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) my circumstances have changed and are likely to continue to change at the moment. I may need to get further advice on my long term solutions for dealing with my debts once I am able to complete an accurate budget.

Therefore I would like to request on the above account.

Thank you for your understanding and I hope to hear from you soon.

(Please note, all further correspondence should be addressed to me. Business Debtline are a self-help agency and are not acting as my representative).

Yours faithfully
