The Ministry of Economic Development continues to monitor the implementation of measures to support entrepreneurs which provide for deferred and reduced rental payments as well as exemption from rent.

According to available data, the Federal Agency for State Property Management has received 3,8 thousand requests from SMEs to conclude addendums to lease agreements that allow to defer payments or get an exemption from rent to the most affected categories of entrepreneurs. 2.3 thousand addendums have already been signed for a total of 483.4 million rubles. Among them, 1.96 thousand were deferred for a total of 383.8 million rubles and 649 were released for a total of 99.6 million rubles.  

According to data from 85 constituent entites of the Russian Federation, as of August 3, 41.5 thousand addendums on deferral, reduction and release from rent were concluded with regional holders of rental territories with the participation of almost 5 thousand lessors in respect of about 89 thousand objects of state and municipal real estate for a total amount of 11.6 billion rubles (Moscow accounts for about 5 billion rubles).

In addition, to date, about 21 thousand addendums have been concluded for deferral, reduction and release from rent in respect of 17 thousand private property objects for a total amount of 1.8 billion rubles, of which 958.3 million rubles are deferred and reduced, and the remaining part is exempt from payments.

Deputy Minister Oksana Tarasenko notes positive statistics on the release of business from the burden of rental payments and, in general, the integrity of both private and state and regional lessors. "We hope that rental support measures have helped entrepreneurs in the difficult time of the epidemic," she said.
