Corona virus: extension of tax aid measures

Author: Peggy Criel (Legal Expert)

Companies experiencing difficulties as a result of the spread of the coronavirus can apply for aid measures from the FPS Finance. The measures will be extended until 31 December 2020.

Reminder: as regards the withholding tax, the employer may benefit from payment facilities, exemption from interest on arrears and/or remission of fines for non-payment.

A company that wants to benefit from these measures had to submit an application for each debt, by email or by letter upon the receipt of each tax demand or VAT related payment notice and no later than 30 June 2020.

This period is now extended until 31 December 2020.
