The debts of small and medium-sized entrepreneurs to the funds are consistently first in relation to their other debts, such as energy, suppliers and the tax office.

In fact, those who owe money to the funds are proportionately more in his sector trade and those who have annual turnover below 50,000 eurosi.e. in the lowest income bracket of small and medium-sized enterprises.

This is revealed by the new IME survey of GSEVEE, which was published yesterday.

Specifically, during the first quarter of 2022 (which coincided with the outbreak of the energy crisis), the proportionally greater percentage of freelancers declares that they have overdue debts to the former OAEE.

The debts to the former OAEE hold this sad “first” for the third consecutive semester, as this trend was recorded in both the first and second semesters of 2021.

In more detail, with regard to each category of obligations, the findings of the research are as follows:

– 19% of small and very small businesses stated that they are overdue

debts to the former OAEE,

-17.5% stated that they have overdue debts on energy bills,

-16% stated that they have overdue debts to suppliers,

– 15.9% stated that they have overdue debts to the tax authorities,

– 11.2% stated that they have rent arrears (14.3% in the first half of 2021). It is noted that of the businesses that have rent (66% of all businesses), the percentage of businesses that declared that they have rent arrears corresponds to 17%.

– 8.9% stated that they have overdue debts on other bills (water, telephone, etc.),

– 10.2% stated that they have overdue bank debts. It is noted that of the businesses that have bank loans (57% of all businesses), the percentage of businesses that declared they have overdue bank debts corresponds to 18%.

– 7.2% stated that they have overdue debts to the former IKA. It is noted that of the businesses that have staff (64.9% of all businesses), the percentage of businesses that declared that they have overdue debts to the former IKA corresponds to 9.4%.

The largest percentages of those who declare that they have overdue debts before the former OAEE are noted in the trade sector (19.7%), then in services (19.1%) and finally in manufacturing (17.6%).

Based on the annual turnover, the largest debts to the former OAEE are recorded for those with revenues of up to 50,000 euros, i.e. very small, small and medium-sized enterprises. The percentage of professionals declaring debtors of the former OAEE decreases the higher the turnover.
