We regularly inform you about successive governmental bills referred to as “Anti-Crisis Shields”. On 31st March this year the Anti-Crisis Shield 1.0 was adopted and entered into force on the very same day. On 18th April the Anti-Crisis Shield 2.0 entered into force. On 28-29th April 2020 further drafts were published, including a draft law on interest subsidies on bank loans granted to provide liquidity to Polish entrepreneurs affected by COVID-19 (draft law on subsidies), as well as the draft law amending certain laws regarding protective measures with relation to the spread of SARS-CoV-2. On 30th April the latter draft was adopted by the Sejm and passed to the Senate. Government work on the draft law on the subsidies is still ongoing.
Below you will find a summary of the solutions contained in the already binding law, so called Anti-Crisis Shields 1.0 and 2.0, divided into specific relevant topics. We have marked these solutions in black. Whereas the amendments and supplements put forward under the draft law amending certain laws regarding protective measures with relation to the spread of SARS-CoV-2, now called “Anti-Crisis Shield 3.0″, have been marked in red. In addition, we pointed out in italics the changes proposed under the draft law on subsidies, which, however, has still not been enacted nor submitted to the Sejm in its final version.
This summary was prepared by our law partner sdzlegal Schindhelm and has been kindly made available to us for forwarding.
