Heller indicated that the project of the extended moratorium "is not a tailored suit but a tailored suit for all those who need to get ahead, given the serious decrease of the productive activity that existed at the end of last year and that was aggravated by the pandemic. "
" This extended moratorium -with less interest rates- is designed so that the companies that are returning to the activity can survive and to that those who have not yet been able to resume activity have a much clearer horizon in fiscal matters, "closed his presentation.
In turn, the vice president of the Budget and Finance Commission, the radical Luis Pastori, stressed that moratoriums of this type "usually reward the living" who do not pay taxes, but clarified that, "however, this is somewhat imperative", due to the crisis generated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"
Meanwhile, the secretary of the Budget commission, Marcelo Casaretto pointed out that" this is a moratorium for all, because the National State extends its hands to all Argentines so that they can regularize "and " 960 thousand taxpayers with a debt of $ 534 billion "can enter.
The novelty of this moratorium is that not only SMEs are reached as in previous versions but also larger and larger companies belonging for example to the agricultural, livestock, industrial, construction, commercial, services and tourism sectors, will be able to take advantage of the benefits of the moratorium.
