Fifth package of government measures financial aid

At the 36th session held on April 18, 2021, the Parliament of the Republic of North Macedonia adopted the Law on Financial Support to Employers affected by the Health and Economic Crisis caused by the COVID-19 Virus, for February and March 2021 salaries payment and it is expected to be published in the Official Gazette of NMK as soon as possible.

Тhis support refers to February and March 2021 salaries and it should be submitted via e-tax to the PRO no later than April 30, 2021. Completeness of the request will be confirmed by the PRO, within three days on its receipt. An official notification from the PRO regarding the start of the e-tax application process shall be published on its website.

The new legal solution in relation to the previous one is that in field 3.4b in the MPIN form the code 5002 will be used instead of 5001 which was used in the previous applications. Also the condition not to reduce the number of employees is not mandatory for the Employers in the catering services (code 56 - activities for preparation and serving food and code 55 - accommodation facilities) and the transport services (code 49 - land transport and pipeline transport) because due to the health protocols they have closed at least 50% of their capacities. 

There are also new legal solutions regarding the obligation to repay this financial support and the possibility of transforming into a grant.
