The Council of Ministers held yesterday approved the Royal Decree Law 15/2020, of March 21, to deal with the economic effects of the coronavirus crisis and was published today in the Official State Gazette. To inform you about the labour aspects of it, Sara Bueno, from our labour department, has prepared an explanatory video.

If you want to delve a little more into them, Pere Alonso, from the same department, has drafted a complete circular that addresses, among others, the measures related to temporary lay-off (ERTE), teleworking, unemployment benefits, inspection and the postponement of debts.

The Royal Decree also includes a package of tax measures, with changes related to VAT, fractional payment of Corporation Tax and fractional payment and income on account in the objective estimation method of personal income tax. In a second circular, the economists Ester Brullet and Carolina Mateo, from the tax department, discuss these and other developments, which Ester Brullet also talks about in this video.
