Efforts from Övertorneå kommun

On March 23, 2020, the municipal board decided to offer support to the local businesses according to 4 kap. 3 § LEH*. This decision is applicable during the ongoing pandemic.

It means that businesses in Övertorneå that experience problems with the cash flow due to the corona pandemic can get in touch with us to get help with:

  • delayed term of payment on invoices regarding water, waste disposal, permissions and supervisory matters
  • delayed term of payment on rent for premises
  • dialog regarding permissions and supervisory matters (that aren’t necessary to secure life and health) and the opportunity to extend time limits

This decision is not general. An individual review will be made in each case. Contact us by email or phone for assistance.

We are also working continuously to shorten the term of payment to suppliers.

 

The business work that Övertorneå kommun does has changed and planned activities that includes travel or physical meetings in larger groups like network meetings, business visits and education are delayed or switched to digital meetings. We are looking forward to continue that work as soon as it is safe again, and remind you that we are available as usual through phone or email.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
