The director of the Serbian Association of Employers (UPS), Srdjan Drobnjakovic, said today that he would propose at the session of the Presidency of that association for the state to help small and medium enterprises with three minimum wages for the employees in 2021 and a new postponement of payment of taxes and contributions for six months.

He told Beta that, due to the difficult financial situation, which is a consequence of the limited movements caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, plenty of companies with up to ten employees would be shut down or resort to operations within the shadow economy.

– Plenty of SMEs would have to either close down or start operating illegally, because they have no other way of paying their obligations. I believe that the state will be able to foresee the potential damage and find a way to once again help the economy – Drobnjakovic said.

He added that the old agreements with business partners were either finished or close to being finished and that the making of new business arrangements was difficult.

Drobnjakovic also said that UPS had launched an initiative for hostels and ethno-houses to be equalized with hotels and for pastry shops to be equalized with other bars and restaurants when it comes to the allocation of state aid.

He also said that the bombastically announced credits from the Development Fund were not developing as expected, as the requests of many owners of hospitality facilities had been rejected, whereas a number of them had not received a response since April.

Drobnjakovic also said that UPS had launched an initiative to reduce the rent of state-owned vessels that are being rented by hospitality businesses.
