In the current COVID-19 pandemic, governments and institutions across the globe are introducing measures to try to alleviate the impact on businesses, individuals and families. Fiscal and financial compensation measures are evolving over time: government-backed loans to businesses, business rates reliefs, direct business grants, support for the self-employed, the extension to tax deadlines and the relaxation of rules on the payment of sickness benefits, are just some examples.
BDO’s interactive map is a global tool that provides an overview of the key measures being introduced by governments in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is compiled from information provided by BDO Tax and BDO Grant and International Aid specialists, for jurisdictions where we have this information. We will continue to build this overview as more information becomes available to us and must stress that the overview is not intended to be fully comprehensive. We are faced with a rapidly evolving situation so the information may not always reflect the most recent developments. BDO contacts and links to official websites are provided accordingly.
