To our Welch family, our clients and our community

As individuals, as an organization and as a community, we continue to learn and adapt to the challenges presented during these unprecedented times.

With over one hundred years of history, Welch has survived the 1918 pandemic, World Wars I and II, and now we will survive Covid-19.  We learned, we adapted and we survived these events. Our plan is to continue that history of perseverance and make our way through this pandemic.

One of our top priorities continues to be the health, safety and security of all of our employees.

With this in mind, the firm transitioned to an almost complete remote work environment very quickly. We continue to learn from this experience.

Our firm’s management and Response Team continue to monitor the guidance from the government and the Public Health authorities as it relates to COVID19:

We want you to know that we are keeping our focus and we are concentrating on the following:

Our Team Members.  We are giving our team members as much flexibility as possible to accommodate their ability to balance family, work and much-needed rest. 

Our Clients. The needs of our clients are at the forefront of our concerns. We have teams that are continually strategizing ways to best help our clients through this difficult time.

    • Welch has created an Economic Survival/Recovery SWAT Team to assist our clients in navigating through the “Survival” stage and ultimately emerging strong for the “Recovery” stage of this pandemic.
    • Welch has a system for electronic submission, preparation and completion of personal tax returns. If you would like more information on this, please email or call your Welch LLP contact.
    • To assist you, we have created resources to outline government response to COVID-19, tax information and other resources that will be of value to you at this time.  These are located here: https://www.welchllp.com/covid-19/, with new items added regularly.

Our Communities. We are contributing where we can to support the communities in which we live and work.  We will continue to make an impact wherever we can.

Our partners and staff appreciate the trust our clients have shown in us. We consistently look for opportunities to help our clients navigate the challenges at this time.

We feel fortunate to be in the communities we are situated in. We are optimistic about the future – there will be ongoing challenges, however, we know that Welch, our people and our communities will emerge from the pandemic’s challenges and that brighter days are ahead.
