Proposed extension of turnover-based support to cover July–September 2021
To help businesses overcome the consequences of the pandemic, the Government will propose extending the turnover-based support for sole traders and trading partnerships in which at least one partner is a natural person to cover July, August and September 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 rebound as soon as transmission rates drop.
We are currently in a third wave of transmission, while the situation in the labour market and for companies is serious. The Government will therefore propose that the turnover-based support be extended to the end of September so as to further increase the ability of sole traders and trading partners to overcome the consequences of the pandemic.
The Government will present new ordinances to regulate the additional period in due course.
Media representatives and journalists should contact the press secretary. Others with questions should call the Government Offices switchboard or email the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation’s senior registry clerk.
