The government announced “several tax measures” for legal persons (companies and self-employed people) and natural persons (individual taxpayers) in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
The finance ministry said on 17 March:
“The main objective of these measures is to alleviate the financing and liquidity needs of businesses and the self-employed who are strongly impacted by the current economic restrictions.”
The finance ministry stated:
Firms and self-employed people can make a “simple request to cancel tax advances for the first two quarters of 2020.” The extension includes local taxes. This covers taxes due on commercial, agricultural and forestry, and liberal professional activities.
Income tax (for local authorities), municipal commercial tax and wealth tax payments due after 29 February 2020 can be paid up to four months late without interest or penalties.
