In view of the unprecedented impact of COVID-19, the Ministry of Law (MinLaw) has provided a range of measures over the past few months to assist businesses, including temporary relief from legal action for the inability to perform certain contracts, and the Rental Relief Framework.
To further support small and micro businesses that continue to be significantly impacted by COVID-19, MinLaw will introduce two new measures – the Re-Align Framework and Simplified Insolvency Programme in January 2021.
MinLaw invites ASPRI members to join the Zoom Webinar where they will share more about how eligible businesses may benefit from these measures.
(Note: This is a second run of the webinar that was held on 17 December 2020. Businesses which attended the first webinar should not register again, so that spaces can be freed up for others.)
