June 3, 2020Renata Ban

News about emergency certificates were published on M.O. 385 on May the 13th.

According to the new provisions, the economic operators who suffered from the effects of the SAR-Cov2 pandemic in april, can benefit from the certificate of emergency TYPE 2 (yellow) situations following the completion of a self-declaration. The statement must indicate that there is a decrease in revenues of at least 25% in March or April 2020 compared to the average for January and February 2020.

But companies now have another statement available to get the certificate of emergency situations. In fact, the new declaration used only adds the month April 2020 (along with March), as the month in which the decrease in income/income achieved is decreased by more than 25% compared to the average income of January-February 2020.

The current context, triggered by the COVID19 epidemic, is already creating numerous difficulties and challenges for companies, with a new economic crisis on the horizon.

And to do this, I propose you to review together the main changes of the new Tax Code and also the new provisions of the Ordinance 50/27.10.2015.
