MFČR notice for renewal of the Compensation Bonus.

Drawing conditions according to the type of entity

Those who have a decrease in sales of at least 30% in the comparative period as a result of restrictions will be able to apply. The decrease in sales by at least 30% must not be obviously due to reasons other than the impact of crisis, emergency or protective measures, childcare of the entrepreneur or his employee in connection with COVID-19 or ordered quarantine or isolation of the entrepreneur (eg self-suppression, vacation).

The comparison period is June to October 2021. Applicants will choose 3 months from these 5 months at their discretion, average sales for these three months and compare this average with December 2021 - if there is a decline, they will be able to apply.

For seasonal entrepreneurs (eg ski lifts) the comparison period will be November 2019, December 2019, January 2020, February 2020 and March 2020. They will also choose three of these five, averaging sales and comparing them with December 2021. Depending on how much the difference may be or they can't apply for the bonus.

The comparison period is December 2021 and January 2022.

The 1st bonus period is November 22nd to December 31st, 2021, the law guarantees a second bonus period corresponding to January 2022.

We recommend that applications for the current compensation bonus be submitted no earlier than January 1, 2022, resp. from 1 February 2022 (for the January bonus period and the January comparison period). In the case of previously submitted applications, there is a risk that such submitted applications will show certain defects (eg incomplete applications) or that the application will not clearly show the facts entitling to the compensation bonus and the tax administrator will have to respond to these facts.
