Many employers are concerned these last few months about overcoming this period having a smaller income, while keeping the same number of employees. The government came to their support with unemployment measures to help cover some expenses for the temporarily closed companies. The following measures can be used:
- entering into technical unemployment, with 75% payment, working less, but under normal conditions;
- entering into technical unemployment under the conditions provided by GEO 30/2020 for employers directly or indirectly affected by COVID-19;
- receiving the indemnity of 41.5% out of the minimum gross salary for each employee that was under technical unemployment measures, and comes back to work;
- parents free days to supervise their children.
Each of these measures has a different tax treatment, and a limited period to be applied.
Another fiscal measure to support the investors is Law no. 54/2020 for the approval of GEO no. 33/2020, which came up with some tax measures and the amendment of certain regulatory acts: in third quarter of 2020, the tax due will be reduced by 10% for taxpayers paying corporation tax.
