965 individual entrepreneurs and organizations can take advantage of the support measure. All of them rented city premises last year at a minimum or preferential rate.
More than 400 representatives of small businesses who rent premises with an area of up to 300 square meters or are engaged in socially significant activities have received preferential and minimum rental rates for urban real estate. Thus, this year they will save 810 million rubles.
“In total, 965 individual entrepreneurs and organizations can take advantage of this measure, which last year rented premises from the city at a minimum or preferential rate – 4.75 thousand rubles and 3.5 thousand rubles per square meter per year, respectively. In the first quarter of 2021, 413 individual entrepreneurs and organizations have already implemented this support measure. The minimum rental rate was received by 89 tenants, the reduced rate was approved by 324 entrepreneurs. The total area of the premises they occupy is 75 thousand square meters. In 2021, these entrepreneurs will be able to save 810 million rubles on renting urban real estate, ”said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations.
If an entrepreneur claims a preferential or minimum rate, then he should not have rent arrears and penalties. He also needs to be listed in the register of small and medium-sized businesses, which is published on the website of the Federal Tax Service.
“The program of concessional lease of urban premises for small businesses was launched in Moscow in 2013, was preserved during the pandemic and was extended until 2021 as an additional support measure. It is designed for small businesses that previously received the right to lease non-residential facilities without bidding. Those who rent urban space of up to 300 square meters at the minimum rate can save it automatically. The preferential rate for entrepreneurs engaged in socially significant activities is approved by the decision of the Interdepartmental Commission for the provision of property support to small businesses in case of confirmation of this status, “- said the Minister of the Government of Moscow, head City Property Department Maxim Gaman.
The preferential rate, he noted, is provided to companies that are related to such areas as health care, veterinary medicine and education (with an appropriate license), as well as trade in food products, social nutrition, consumer services, physical culture and sports, culture, production. It can also be received by those who employ people with disabilities – they must be at least half of the total number of employees, while the share in the wages fund must be at least 25 percent.
To get a minimum or reduced rate, an entrepreneur must contact with a statement to the Interdepartmental Commission for the Provision of Property Support. Documents can be brought in paper form (to the one-stop shop) or provided online using the service “Electronic reception”.
In addition, there is a new support measure for entrepreneurs who rent property from the city. When renewing contracts, they can move the term of the prepayment for the last five months of the lease at the end of the next year.
