The study comes from PRO.VAR, and the results show that new support has dropped from 60% of catering companies that are considering bankruptcy to 37%. However, the National Hotel Association pointed out that this is still an “extremely serious situation.”
A study by PRO.VAR showed that the new support announced on March 12 reduced the number of catering companies that are considering bankruptcy by 23%, but 85% of people still believe that support is needed.
In the survey conducted on the 2nd to 9th of this month, based on the valid replies of 549 catering establishments, the survey showed that, in light of the data from the survey conducted from January 28 to February 6 in the previous survey, “National The Hotel Association stated that the number of bankruptcies in March managed to reduce the number of companies considering bankruptcy from 60% to 37%.
The survey also showed that two-thirds of the respondents were unable to pay half of the expenses, and 27.1% of the companies were not within the scope of the Apoiar plan (13.7% of companies opened recently, and the remaining 13.4% of companies had a bankruptcy rate of less than 25% in 2005. %) 2020).
PRO.VAR provided the government with the results of this research and provided a document on “rescue measures for the catering industry”, which condemned “unfair and uncoordinated support and rules” and believed that the current timetable is “The recovery department on the brink of “servitude”.”
According to PRO.VAR’s research, the research identified a “very serious situation.” Two-thirds (66.4%) of shopping malls are considering filing for bankruptcy, stating that they “are even more restricted than other companies, because in addition to high time and cost restrictions, they can avoid several Month’s bankruptcy. Go to work because they can’t even do it in “take away.”
In the document sent to the executive officer, the association also condemned “serious failure of support” and insisted that “imbalance of reward standards” has “eliminated many institutions” and covered the “interval between support and support”. Huge distortion”. In the case of “the more serious the situation”, the “smaller the size of the company”, the greater the weight of the cost.
Restaurant merchants also expressed their “outrage” at weekends (closed at 13:00) because this choice puts many institutions in a “financially fragile” state “on the brink of enslavement.”
Or, they suggest opening in two shifts (from 12:00 to 15:30, and from 19:00 to 22:30), in the food court of the shopping center, from 12:00 to 22:30 hours.
The association emphasized the “urgent need to take measures to encourage the capitalization of micro, small and medium-sized companies”, and pointed out that “this is the fundamental incentive for capital injection, that is, through the provision of additional tax credits for entrepreneurs’ investment,” exempted or exempted in companies The amount of dividends or capital gains waived in the future is equal to the amount injected into the company within 12 months after the end of the pandemic.
The focus of the value-added tax (i.e. food tax) falling from 13% to 6% in the next few years is that “the industry can best ensure the recovery of the industry without discriminating against any company, maintaining healthy competition and the support of competition rules. Policy is fair And a non-discriminatory tax system”.
For PRO.VAR, “it is urgent to take one of the following two positions: either the Portuguese government believes that the restaurant should be closed, or take a 70% loss as a supporting position, as in Germany or France”, or choose “assuming the risk has been determined” In the end, it will no longer interfere with the mode of business operation in a cut way, such as the situation in Spain.”
