As long as they are experiencing liquidity problems as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, legal and natural persons who make a commercial profit, an agricultural and forestry profit or a profit resulting from the exercise of a liberal profession may apply for:

Requests for cancellation of advances and payment deadlines are automatically accepted by the administration.

In addition, the deadline for submitting tax returns has been extended to 30 June 2020. This decision applies to legal and natural persons, as well as to taxpayers wishing to request, modify or revoke the selection of their individual tax scheme.

Further information to be found in the publication of the Ministry of Finance (in French).
