In a bid to provide further support to businesses that have been hard hit by the repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is expected to announce a series of relief measures today, including the freezing of tax debts to the state until the end of the year and a reduction of the corporate tax deposit for 2021 for loss-making enterprises.

According to sources, the government is planning to tweak the Syn-Ergasia program so that it not only covers part of employees’ lost salaries but also subsidizes the creation of new jobs as unemployment has edged up during the lockdown.

As regards the corporate tax deposit for 2021, it could be reduced by up to 100 percent for enterprises and sectors that are loss-making.
