80% rent discount for businesses that remain closed by state order

For retail, catering, culture, sports, gyms, tourism, transport and businesses that remain closed during the holidays by government order, rents are reduced by 80% for January and February, regardless of health options in the next period.

60% of the monthly agreed rent, and not on the loss, will be reimbursed to the owners from the state budget, so that they do not have further losses than they have today, while companies will pay only 20% of the rent. In this way the cost of rent is shared by 60% in the state, 20% in the landlord and 20% in the business.

The measure concerns all companies that remain closed by state order after December 16. Includes retail businesses, whether operating with an off-delivery system or with home-based e-commerce or telephone services, catering businesses, whether operating with product distribution and / or in-store package delivery, companies in the fields of culture, sports, gyms and other businesses that remain closed by state order. In addition, tourism businesses such as hotels, accommodation and travel agencies and transport services are included, as they are particularly affected by the ban on travel from county to county.
