One of the foremost measures established by the Spanish Government by Royal Decree Law 7/2020, of March 12th, of urgent measures to face the economic impact produced by COVID-19, is the possibility of deferring payments of taxes corresponding to the first quarter 2020. This postponement can be carried out for a period of up to 6 months, though the debt is only exempt of interests during the first 3 months of deferment.
