Moratorium has following advantages for debtors:
- Impossibility to declare company or sole proprietor insolvent.
- No financial penalties for violation of monetary obligations.
- “Freezing” of penalties on the mortgaged property.
- Suspension of enforcement proceedings for property penalties.
Who can be subject to moratorium?
Bankruptcy moratorium is automatically applied to all those who are listed in governmental Decree.
