End of public aid: how to minimise the impact on businesses? – Option Finance, 05/20/2021

 

The difficulties that businesses continue to face due to the economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic raise fears of a wave of bankruptcies with the gradual phasing out of state aid. The government has therefore taken new measures (deferral of repayment of EGPs, equity loans, etc.) which complement those already applied since the beginning of the crisis (short-time working, EGPs, solidarity funds, repayable advances, etc.). Their implementation is taking place against the backdrop of the transposition of the European “restructuring and insolvency” directive and the reform of the law on securities, which is not without causing some tensions, such as those on the wage guarantee insurance scheme (AGS). Fine-tuning of all these tools is therefore essential to enable a maximum number of companies to recover from the Covid crisis.
