China is pulling out all the stops to re-start the economy in the wake of COVID-19. On May 13, the Supreme People’s Court (SPC) released Guiding Opinions of on the Proper Handling of Enforcement Cases with Respect to Coronavirus (最高人民法院关于依法妥善办理涉新冠肺炎疫情执行案件若干问题的指导意见), which promotes leniency measures for COVID-affected companies.

The opinions lessen or temporarily lift social credit disciplinary measures imposed on companies prior to the pandemic, and state the court’s intention to refrain from imposing penalties on companies that are struggling to resume work or honor their legal obligations due to the pandemic.

The opinions specifically focus on supporting SME work resumption and providing penalty grace periods to struggling small businesses.
