(ČIA) The first financial means within the framework of the COVID Nájemné (Rent) programme should be paid out by the state in June 2020. This information was provided by Deputy PM Karel Havlíček (for ANO) who added that it could total CZK 4 to 5bn for roughly 200,000 entities. It is possible to draw the contribution for the period from April 1 to June 30, 2020. Its payment presumes an agreement between the lessee of the closed commercial premises and the lessor on the government-approved conditions, according to which the state will cover 50%, the lessor 30% and the lessee 20%. SP ČR vice-president Jan Rafaj recommends not only allowing the submission of the applications for a subsidy electronically on a large scale, but also that their completion is as easiest as possible and partially automated.
