Applications for corona emergency aid can no longer be submitted.

Loan program: The State runs a loan program and guarantees these loans. Talk to your bank or to the Saarländischen Investitionskreditbank (Saarland Investment Credit Bank - SIKB). Forms are expected to be available from 24 March.  

Deferrals of a loan: To secure your liquidity, you can pay the instalments of your loan once you have received a loan from SIKB. You must indicate that you are affected by the Corona crisis and for how long you want to defer the payment of the instalments. Go to the website of the SIKB and use the function «Send email».  

Taxes: (1) The tax authorities can defer the taxes and there is no need to pay deferral interest. (2) Prepayments (for example income tax, corporation tax, trade tax) can be adjusted. (3) Enforcement orders and late payment penalties are waived if these are consequences of the corona pandemic. The respective Tax Office is responsible.
