Business Bulletin No. 3/2020 – COVID EDITION II

Obligatory face masks have become a symbol of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the Czech Republic. However, as of 1 July 2020, the extraordinary measure requiring the respiratory protection the Czech Republic ceased to be effective (except for local outbreaks). As the restrictive measures loosen and everyday life is slowly getting back to normal, we have prepared a second (and  hopefully the last) special edition of our Business Bulletin dedicated to the pandemic and management of its consequences. We have summarised new important measures which aim to help businesses to overcome these difficult times – most importantly the ‘COVID-Ubytování’ scheme, which is meant to help businesses providing accommodation services, furthermore the compensatory bonus for employees performing work under other than employment contract, or postponement and pardon of social security payments. New subsidy system called ‘COVID – Nájemné’ has also been launched – its aim is to help businesses which had to temporarily close down their establishments due to the restrictions. Final part of this edition contains summarised information on effective and planned aid for entrepreneurs in the field of taxes, guarantees and subsidies.
