As you all know, we are in the midst of a globally-declared pandemic concerning the respiratory illness caused by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). As the impact on our community, here in Houston and across the country, continues to evolve, PKF Texas is taking a prudent approach to addressing this event in an attempt to “flatten the curve”. As such, effective today, March 17, 2020, we are encouraging all of our staff to work from home through March 31st (to be reassessed at that time). While our approach is consistent with what many other organizations are doing, we recognize our special service commitment to you, our clients.
The PKF Texas office is open and is currently staffed by a limited crew of support team members only. While we recognize that this temporary arrangement could have the potential to impact our service to you, we believe it will be mitigated by our paperless work environment.
As a firm, we have been at the forefront in the use of technology, including: electronic workpapers, instant messaging and team chats, video conference capabilities, SharePoint sites to share documents through an electronic upload, and a history of working with many clients on a remote basis. This includes those of you who are located in Houston and surrounding areas, in other cities in Texas, the U.S. and globally. In addition to our advanced technology, as always, we are also available by phone or email to meet your ever-changing needs.
With this in mind, we believe our services to you will continue virtually uninterrupted. If you have any concerns about this temporary arrangement, please contact your client service team.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and for your partnership with us as we all work through this unprecedented event. PKF Texas is grateful for your business and for the confidence you have placed in our firm.
