Employers Call for Urgent Write-Off of Dues, Access to Money

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, March 23, 2020 – The Croatian Employers Association (HUP) has called for a write-off of all dues and for access to liquid assets through various institutions for employers affected by the coronavirus crisis.

HUP director Davor Majetić said in a statement that in negotiations it had been conducting lately HUP wanted to achieve several goals.

The first goal is for all employers affected by movement restrictions to get nonrepayable grants for the payment of wages and for their operations.

HUP wants government bodies at all levels not to send them any bills and to write off all employers’ dues (non-tax levies, concessions, membership fees, and public utility charges) for the duration of the crisis.

It calls for the suspension of all other taxes and concession fees rather than their postponement for the duration of the crisis, a lower profit tax rate and the postponement of the payment of profit income advances as well as the cancellation of the obligation to issue salary statements for directors.

HUP also demands loan rescheduling and refinancing, ensuring the international flow of goods, declaring a force majeure and postponing deadlines for the submission of reports, forms and statements of accounts due to difficulties caused by the pandemic.
