There is no need to submit a separate application or declaration, the state secretary indicated, adding that it will be enough for those concerned to simply tick the fields created for this purpose in their monthly tax and contribution returns.

The November return must be sent by December 12 and the tax must be paid by that date.

According to the calculations of the ministry, almost 15,000 companies will be affected by the exemption, Izer said.
