Principle and conditions

Through the Economic Recovery Support Commission (CARE), the Government is providing practical, customised support. In this way, it aims to offer support over the long term to businesses which contribute to the country's wealth in terms of employment, tax revenue and reputation.

Thus, companies that have benefited from aid from CARE this summer, may be eligible for renewal of this aid for the last quarter of 2020, subject to the fulfilment of certain criteria. The beneficiaries concerned have been sent an explanatory email to this effect from the Covid19 Businesses Unit.

Furthermore, the Government is aware of the social and economic difficulties that businesses have to face over the long term, and has asked CARE to additionally review new situations, based on the submission of figures and evidence.

  • Have had a turnover of strictly no more than €5 million in 2019 (excluding taxes, including tax refunds)
  • Have experienced at least a 50% decline in turnover before tax, compared with the same period last year, noting that the period concerned now focuses on September and October 2020
  • Be able to present evidence on the basis of the documents and information required as part of the application procedure. The Government reserves the right to request additional supporting documents to enable it to fully analyse the application
