Purpose

This website is a free and independent overview from international lawyers and tax experts. The goal is to provide overviews of the various legislation adopted due to COVID-19.

References are made to the sources of COVID-19 legislation (codes, ordinances etc.) in order to allow readers to access the relevant legislation directly.
