Consequences of Corona: ALSO takes action
As already announced on March 16, ALSO offers its resellers swift and unbureaucratic support. "The service was received with a keen interest and has already resulted in a number of discussions and actions. On top of covering short-term liquidity problems, the company provides especially small businesses the opportunity of competent and individual information regarding local support measures" explains Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding. A lot of European countries are now offering various kinds of state support, which are meant to absorb the effects of the corona virus. The measures range from government loans or tax-based liquidity support to flexible short-time work arrangements.
Via the central mail address firstname.lastname@example.org ALSO gladly puts resellers in contact with experts, who will be able to explain the different options and can advise on application procedures. This information service is free of charge for the ALSO resellers. Should an in-depth legal counselling be necessary, ALSO can recommend local lawyers, who will then be tasked by the reseller directly.
