Reimbursement of Fixed Costs (TVL)

The TVL-reimbursement is meant for SMEs that have suffered a turnover loss of more than 30%, to help pay fixed costs. Fixed costs are for example rent, insurances, leases, maintenance and subscriptions. Wage costs are not included as they are compensated under the NOW: Temporary Emergency Bridging Measure for Sustained Employment.

The reimbursement is based on the total turnover loss. Fixed costs will be calculated as a percentage of your turnover loss. Part of that percentage will be reimbursed. The calculation per sector is being elaborated. The maximum amount is €50,000 for 4 months. This reimbursement is for the months June through September 2020. You can still apply for the TOGS until 26 June 2020.
