The National Body Repair Association, the trade association for the UK’s vehicle body repair shops, calls on the government to extend the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS). Despite bodyshops being permitted to remain open during the lockdown, as they provided an essential service, the 80 per cent reduction in accident repair claims meant almost all had to close and place their staff on furlough.
The National Body Repair Association (NBRA) has written to new Small Business Commissioner Paul Uppal, to bring to his attention the impact that late payment culture is having on the UK economy, and the threat it poses to UK bodyshops every year.
21 March saw the unveiling of the National Body Repair Association (NBRA), the UK’s trade association for vehicle body repair sector – formally known as RMI Bodyshops (NAB & VBRA). The association held an exclusive evening event in London with both industry colleagues and press in attendance.
