Turnover-based support to sole traders and trading partnerships introduced for the period March–June 2021
The Government has today decided to extend turnover-based support to sole traders and trading partnerships with at least one physical person as a partner to cover the period March–June 2021. This support is based on an agreement between the government parties, the Centre Party and the Liberal Party.
The turnover-based support targets sole traders and trading partnerships (including limited partnerships) affected by a major decline in turnover as a result of the ongoing pandemic.
To apply for support for the months March–June 2021, the business must have had a 30 per cent decline in turnover compared with the corresponding month in 2019. The support can then cover 90 per cent of the decline in turnover up to SEK 24 000 per month.
To qualify for support, the total net turnover in 2019 must be at least SEK 180 000 per sole trader or trading partnership shareholder.
As in earlier periods, recipients of unemployment benefits during the support period for which they are applying and those on parental leave or sick leave during the reference period will qualify to receive the extended turnover-based support if they meet the other conditions.
The new regulations enter into force on 1 July 2021. Applications for support must be submitted by 15 September 2021.
