The proposed tax measures focus on deferring payment of certain taxes and postponing previously announced changes to the tax law. There are certain conditions that must be met to apply the measures. The official draft law has not been published yet but it is expected that it will not deviate significantly from the information announced to date.
The proposed actions cover, among others, such areas as labor law, social security regulations and various tax provisions. The measures related to taxation are expected to cover the following:
It is important to bear in mind that some of the proposed measures which defer deadlines for certain tax obligations will require actions from taxpayers and the filing of particular motions with an appropriate justification.
It is expected that the final version of the act will be ready by the end of this week with an expected effective date at the beginning of April.
Future Alerts will report on new developments in this area.
