The creation of the Tax Support and Advice Office is the first measure of the shock plan being implemented to reduce the effects the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the city. The plan will allow for the postponement and compensation of municipal taxes for the use of public space.

Once it is up and running, one of the goals of the office is to offer personalised plans providing payment terms for municipal taxes. The plans will adapt to the reality of each company, to entrepreneurs and individuals.

This first package of measures has been developed through constant dialogue with the city’s social and economic stakeholders and will be expanded as the situation evolves.
