New Measures to Support Business and the Public in Russia during Pandemic
April 8, 2020 19:11


Russian President announced new measures to support business and the public.

Putin has announced new emergency measures to support entrepreneurs and the public. Small and medium-sized businesses will receive tax and insurance premium deferrals for six months and will be able to restructure the debts accumulated during the crisis. First of all, the state intends to help those companies that retain employees.

Vladimir Putin announced new measures to support citizens and businesses affected by the crisis. The President made an opening address before a meeting with members of the government and regional leaders on the fight against coronavirus.   

As emergency assistance, the affected small and medium-sized enterprises will receive a deferral of payment of insurance contributions to social funds for six months and a deferral of all taxes except VAT, also for six months.   

Business taxes after a six-month grace period are restructured. Accumulated deductions can be paid gradually over   a year at least.   

The government and the Central Bank within five days should submit new measures to support enterprises.   

The authorities will primarily help those companies that maintain employment.   

In June, a month ahead of schedule, payments will be made to families with children from 3 to 7 years old.   

Additionally, payments of 3000 roubles per month for each child will be made to families where parents are temporarily unemployed.   

For those who are left without work, when paying for children from 3 to 7 years old, as well as other benefits, the income received earlier at the place of work will not be taken into account. Those who previously could not claim such a payment will begin to receive it.    

In April, May and June, those who are left without work will be paid unemployment benefits automatically in the amount of the minimum wage - 12,130 rubles.   

The program of credit and mortgage vacations will be expanded to make it accessible to more people.   

For medical workers who are at the forefront and work with patients with coronavirus, an additional payment will be set for 3 months: for doctors - 80,000 rubles per month, for paramedics and nurses - 50,000 rubles, for junior medical staff - 25,000 rubles.

Putin’s speech was broadcast on federal television channels. Prior to this, over the past two weeks, he addressed the Russians twice. On March 25, the president announced measures to support Russians and business, and also announced a week from March 30 to April 5 non-working. On April 2, Putin extended non-working days until April 30.
