As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread throughout the New Orleans metropolitan area, we want to provide you with information on the precautions we are taking to protect the welfare and safety of our clients and staff while still providing the efficiency and quality you expect from Ericksen Krentel.

We have enhanced our policies and procedures to ensure we are able to continue business operations as close to normal as possible. Some of our team will be working remotely to comply with social distancing recommendations. Rest assured we have technology in place to ensure uninterrupted service to meet your deadlines.

We also recommend any scheduled face-to-face meetings with our clients be conducted virtually, where possible. Our team will reach out to adjust or reschedule meetings as needed.

To help meet social distancing recommendations, we encourage you to submit tax documents and workpapers electronically though our secure client portal, a link to which can be found on our website or by clicking here. You may also upload information via ShareSafe, a link to which can be found in any of your Ericksen Krentel professionals’ email signatures or by clicking here. Please contact your Ericksen Krentel professional if you are not registered for these delivery methods or need assistance using them.

Our staff has been instructed to follow the procedures and guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help stem the spread of COVID-19. Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures have been introduced throughout our facilities.

As a reminder, you can always monitor our social media accounts at LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook. As issues arise, we ask that you contact us so we can address them as quickly as possible to ensure we continue to meet your needs.

We hope and pray for a quick end to this pandemic. We wish you, your families and your staff the best during these challenging times.
