Postponement of submission of VAT

On 18 March 2020, the Federal Public Service Finance sent a communication on additional support measures in response to the coronavirus.

Companies experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) were already able to apply for support measures from the Federal Public Service Finance.

In addition, the federal government has now also decided to take additional measures to create financial breathing space for businesses, entrepreneurs but also for families. In this way, they want to mitigate the financial consequences of the virus as much as possible.
