The subsidy of fixed costs is meant for companies (including the self-employed) that have suffered a turnover loss due to the corona crisis, to help them pay their fixed costs. You can apply for this tax-free subsidy for turnover loss through 30 June 2021.

In the week of 15 February 2021, you can apply for TVL for Q1 2021. For larger companies (over 250 employees) TVL Q1 2021 will also be available, however you will not be able to apply immediately after opening.

The amount of the subsidy will be calculated based on the total turnover loss and a percentage for fixed costs that is set per sector. Normal turnover for each period is calculated based on turnover in the corresponding months in 2019.

Please note: wage costs and other variable costs are not included. Wage costs are compensated through the NOW: Temporary Emergency Bridging Measure for Sustained Employment.
