Turnover-based support extended to cover May and June
To save jobs and businesses, it has been proposed that turnover-based support for sole traders and trading partnerships in which at least one partner is a natural person be extended to cover May and June 2021. The proposal is based on an agreement between the government parties, the Centre Party and the Liberal Party.
The purpose of turnover-based support for sole traders and trading partnerships in which at least one partner is a natural person is to alleviate the economic impact of the measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 so that more businesses will make it through the crisis and the economy can get going again as soon as the vaccine beings to have an effect in society.
This extended turnover-based support means that it now covers periods between March 2020 and June 2021, a total of 16 months. May and June 2021 will constitute two separate support periods. Businesses are eligible for this support if they have lost more than 30 per cent of their turnover compared with the corresponding month in 2019. On average, the maximum amount of support per sole trader and natural person who is a partner in a trading partnership is SEK 24 000 per month.
Applications can now be made for turnover-based support for sole traders for the period August 2020–February 2021. As of 29 March, applications can be made for turnover-based support for trading partnerships with at least one natural person as a partner for the period March 2020–February 2021. The Government is working to ensure that applications can soon be made for the March–June 2021 periods.
