Businesses eligible for the Wage Supplement will be awarded additional support in the first months after resuming operations. Such businesses will be assisted on 50% of a commercial rate account for the months of July, August, and September up to an amount of €1,500 per applicant.
The amount will not include the payment for the meter, such that the assistance would focus on operating costs. In addition to serving as an incentive for these businesses to open, this measure will particularly impact small businesses that have a limit on the number of customers they can serve due to social distancing measures.
The total cost of this measure is expected to reach just over €30 million.
