19 October 2020 In brief
- The government has approved a bill extending the period during which entrepreneurs do not have to fulfil duties arising from the Act on Electronic Reporting of Sales until 31 December 2022. The bill is to be debated in the chamber of deputies. The government proposes discussing it under a legislative emergency regime.
- The government has approved a bill extending the period for contracting loans under the COVID III programme by twelve months, i.e. until 31 December 2021. Moreover, it proposes the extension of the deadline up to which it is possible to claim the performance arising from the state guarantee until 30 April 2026. The bill also extends the state guarantee so that the guarantee provided by the Czech-Moravian Guarantee and Development Bank (ČMZRB) also covers loans other than operating ones. The bill is to be discussed by the chamber of deputies. The government proposes discussing it under a legislative emergency regime.
- The government has approved an emergency measure mitigating, during the state of emergency, statutory conditions for changes of employment (such as previous employment in the CR lasting at least six months) for foreigners holding an employee or blue card. It will also suffice to report a change of employer to the Ministry of Internal Affairs no later than on the date of commencement of new employment.
- The government has approved conditions of the Carer’s Allowance II programme for self-employed persons who may apply for a subsidy of CZK 400 per day if they have lost earnings as a result of the closure of schools and they take care of a child younger than 10 years or dependent children up to 26 years old in need of the help of another person (at least Stage I dependence). The provision of carer’s allowances to the self-employed is not regulated by law, so it does not have to be debated in parliament. Adjusted conditions applicable to carer’s allowances for employees should be discussed in the chamber of deputies this week.
