The Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) Halle-Dessau recommends companies to precisely document the burdens caused by the corona crisis. Such a list could be important when applying for state aid, the chamber said on Wednesday. “This includes approximately days with lost sales and roughly the same amount, unpaid hours worked by employees, cancellations, cancellations, canceled and additional invoices or the like”. Applications for deferrals of taxes or other payment obligations should also be noted.
To increase the pressure on politicians to help the economy quickly and unbureaucratically, the Chamber of Commerce is calling for an online survey. Companies should use it to quantify how much they are financially affected in order to make politicians aware of the urgency of financial support. On the website, the Chamber of Commerce also provides information about other current developments relating to the corona crisis.
