The Czech capital debates further COVID-19 relief measures

Prague City Council has debated measures to help small businesses impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, reported the Radio Praha. These include proposals to forgive rent in city-owned properties and financial support of up to CZK 45,000 (some EUR 1,623).

Last week Prague councilors decided not to charge tenants interest fees on late payments for the duration of emergency measures to contain the spread of Covid-19. Those include closing restaurants, bistros, cafés and bars, and the restriction of movement.

On Monday, the Czech government decided to extend these measures until at least April 1 and unanimously approved suspending electronic sales records until three months after the emergency ends. This means taxpayers will not have to record sales, Radio Praha says.
