The outbreak of the coronavirus or COVID-19 and the measures taken by the Dutch government affect the whole of the Netherlands. What impact will they have on the work and services of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency?

We are doing our utmost to ensure that our website is updated as regurlarly as possible. This means that the information on subsidies, programmes and events may change. This will be a continual process in the coming months. We recommend you check the website regularly and refresh our pages so that you see the latest information.

Our services will go on

Uncertain times like these demand us to make an extra effort. We will continue to inform you of the special programmes and funds the Dutch Government has available to you. We also pass on information about the consequences of doing business or carrying out your programme. For example: postponements, extended deadlines and so on.

Reimbursement for loss due to COVID-19

Is your company registered in the Netherlands? Does your company suffer from economic losses as a result of mandatory measures taken by the Dutch government? For example, the closing of your business, cancelled meetings or the negative travel advice? The Dutch government offers companies from specific sectors a one-time reimbursement of €4,000.
