During today’s meeting of the Government, a draft bill was approved that extends the support for self-employed persons and freelancers for the period from 1 May 2020 until 8 June 2020, when the opening of all the businesses would be allowed according to the current schedule for release of the emergency measures. In case the epidemiological situation does not develop favourably and there is a need to change the schedule, the bill includes a mandate that would allow the Government to extend this support further by a Government Regulation, without the approval of the Parliament.

In all other aspects, the compensation bonus should be identical to the current one, so no change of the solemn declaration will be necessary and the support shall continue to be provided in the amount of CZK 500 per day.

This is, of course, only a draft law that is yet to be discussed in the Parliament of the Czech Republic.
