The COVID-19 Tax Deferral Guide helps businesses quickly identify the relevant government tax deferral measures that have been introduced by various jurisdictions in an effort to help businesses with cashflow during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. After having identified the right program, the tool will then automatically guide the user through the application process in order to secure the tax deferral scheme that the business is entitled to. The user is asked to enter certain key data regarding the affected business (e.g. location, sector, employee count or annual turnover). Based on this data, the tool will then automatically determine the applicable government tax deferral scheme and list its respective application process requirements.
The tool currently reflects the support programs which have been implemented by the governments in EU countries and the U.S. in order to support domestic businesses. The tool’s open architecture, however, allows it to be easily adapted to other government support programs in no time.
As a result of the ongoing disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic many businesses are facing cash flow difficulties that, in turn, are having a direct and significant impact on the general economy. Many businesses in the EU and the U.S. are severely impacted and many were obliged to close its shops, restaurants or bars. Some had to reduce production to zero or a bare minimum.
For businesses to survive, their cash flow has become a key focus to ensure all core aspects of the business maintain intact and, in response, governments worldwide have reacted with tax deferral programs. Yet, identifying the applicable and relevant tax deferral program can be challenging due to the vast amount of different government tax programs across multiple jurisdictions.
