  • + For those who have been obliged to stay closed, the daily allowances will continue to be paid automatically.
  • +For market stall holders, the daily premiums shall be automatically granted up to and including 17 May. From this date onwards, market stall holders can only claim a daily premium if they can prove by means of a certificate (issued by the local authorities) that they are not yet able to return to work due to the decisions taken by the local authorities. 

Additional compensation premium for major loss of turnover

  • + For those who were previously eligible for the corona nuisance premium, it refers to a period of 1 month from the reopening compared to a similar reference period last year:
    • +for shops: the period from 11 May to 11 June
    • +for the catering sector: period from 8 June to 8 July

  • +For those who were able to remain open and possibly applied for a compensation premium earlier, we are assuming for the time being that the reference period will be in line with that of the previous compensation premium, probably from 1 May up to and including 30 May. However, this period has not yet been officially announced.
