Kazan representatives of small and medium-sized
businesses, in addition to federal support measures, will also receive
assistance from the municipality.
“We have simplified all types of regulations, related
to the registration of documentation, stimulated the development of business
activities. Special attention was paid to the development of tourism, which engages
a large number of small and medium – sized enterprises, - said the Mayor of
Kazan Ilsur Metshin at a meeting of the headquarters for combating the spread
of coronavirus. – We have achieved that today the contribution of small and
medium-sized businesses to the city budget is 38%. Therefore, as soon as the
self-isolation regime was imposed, our first activities were aimed at
developing our own package of measures to support business”.
For the first time, there is an opportunity to place
summer pavement terraces on a free basis.
A number of existing city programs have been amended
and the city budget has been revised. In particular, on behalf of the mayor,
SME entities that are recipients of financial support under the city's
concessional loan program will continue to receive subsidies while
restructuring of their existing loans.
Also, at the request of Kazan restaurateurs, the
operating mode of municipal parking has been changed: now they will work
without charging on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as on weekdays from 18.00.
One more support measure is a moratorium on fines for
entrepreneurs until the end of this year in case of violations of the rules not
bearing risks to other citizens.
Deferred payments to the city budget for all contracts

of the advertising industry.
Besides, the Executive Committee adopted a resolution
on deferral of lease payments for municipal property.

the Federal government will become a lifeline for entrepreneurs”, the Mayor
