  • A reduction regarding income and corporate tax prepayments in 2020
  • Deferral of tax payments and ability to pay tax in installments
  • Reduction or relief from late payments of tax
  • Suspension of tax audits

Relief from interest or late-payment penalties is available for taxpayers that are able to demonstrate that a liquidity issue is linked to the COVID-19 situation.
