Coronavirus (COVID-19) Desk

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has a major impact on the global economy and public health. In order to provide you, as an entrepreneur or employer, with the best information, advice and assistance possible during these uncertain times, BUREN has set up a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Desk.

Our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Desk consists of lawyers, tax lawyers and advisors from various practice groups. The members of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Desk follow the news and measures taken by the government closely. Based on their expertise, they will regularly inform you about the economic measures that the government is taking to protect jobs and incomes and to deal with the consequences for SME’s, self-employed persons and large companies.

Links to the latest information from our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Desk are at the bottom of this page. Here you can find which measures may apply to you and as well as practical advice on how to best apply or file requests.

Please do not hesitate to contact one of our contact persons if you have any questions or require our assistance regarding the coronavirus. They will gladly help you.
