This September, the Government of Germany awarded a bonus of 300 euros in salary to help the population face the escalation of inflation.
The measure, known as “Energiepreispauschale”, aims to provide support to the population to face the increase in prices, namely energy.
The monthly subsidy of 300 euros, subject to tax, is announced after the German government has already made discounts on public transport and reduced the energy tax on fuel.
The €9 pass and the fuel discount have come to an end, but the German Government is now advancing with a €300 bonus in salary.
The social support comes at a time when Germany faces an inflation rate of 7.9%, in August, and when Russia threatens to cut off gas supplies.
In Portugal, the Government has already announced that it will maintain the discount on the fuel ISP during the month of September and, on Monday, it will present emergency support for families.
According to “Jornal de Negócios”, António Costa’s executive is preparing to increase pensions to combat rising prices.
In addition to this increase for pensioners, António Costa should announce measures that will have an impact on the decrease in tax revenue, through the change in the IRS, but also in the VAT of some products.
For lower-income families, measures are also being prepared to combat the impact of inflation.
The PSD presented on Friday a social emergency plan worth 1.5 billion euros, in which it defends the reduction of VAT to a reduced rate of 6%, on fuel, gas and electricity.
