The federal government made several decisions last Friday to help businesses cope with soaring energy prices.

An overview of the main measures agreed upon by the government:

  • introduction of a temporary unemployment scheme ‘energy’;
  • deferment of payment of social contributions for companies in difficulties because of high energy costs;
  • deferment of tax payments and tax debt repayment plans;
  • temporary moratorium on bankruptcies for companies affected by the energy crisis due to supplier actions.

Important note! These measures still have to be transposed into legal or regulatory texts.

We will keep you updated as soon as we have more details.
