As the Prime Minister announced:

– We are scratching the advance tax for businesses whose turnover in the first half of the year is 35% lower than that of 2019

– For other companies, it will range from 30% to 70%

– We are scratching the advance tax for seasonal businesses. That is, those which record at least 50% of their turnover in the third quarter of the year

– The 50% advance payment will be paid by those professionals who are not required to submit VAT

– We are launching the 3rd round of a refundable advance payment of 1 billion that will concern both sole proprietorships and those without a cash register.
