No extension to February 26 deadline for paying vehicle road tax, Staikouras says

There will be no extension to the current deadline for paying annual vehicle road tax, which ends on Friday, February 26, Finance Minister Christos Staikouras announced on Skai radio on Thursday.

He also spoke about the 500-million-euro programme to cover business overheads and the “Gefyra 2” bridging loans programme to help businesses weather lockdown, saying that the support measures will be enriched for as long as necessary but that it would be impossible to cover all losses as long as restrictions to the operation of the economy continue to exist.

He noted that for every 15 days that retail trade remains closed, cash reserves are diminished by 1.0-1.2 billion euros, the primary budget deficit increases  by 0.7 pct and growth rates slow by 0.8 pct.
