Estonia's government relief guide
As part of our global efforts to help support drivers [and delivery people/couriers, depending on country-level terminology] during the COVID-19 crisis, Uber is working to gather up-to-date information about government financial support that you may be eligible for and how you can request it.
In this guide, we’ll help answer important questions and provide access to resources to help you apply.¹

Fiscal benefits (taxes, etc)
- Self-employed workers will be temporarily released from paying social tax in advance. Read more here
- Interest on tax debts will temporarily not be charged, in effect for at least the two following months and after that, interest on tax debts will be charged at a lower rate than currently applicable (from the current 0,06% to 0,03%).
- The measure will apply retroactively from 1 March to 31 May, but compensation may be claimed up to two months' salary for the period chosen by the employer within that three-month period.
Loans/ credits (lease specific if available etc)
All the larger banks have declared that they are willing to give deferred payment schedules, including pausing payments for up to 6 months, and during this period only payments on interest have to be continued. The ECB/Bank of Estonia has also temporarily loosened capital adequacy ratios to free up more lending capital
