If you meet the conditions for the Reimbursement Fixed Costs subsidy (TVL), you will receive a minimum of 1,500 euros and a maximum of 550,000 euros.
Read how we calculate the subsidy.
How do we calculate the subsidy?
We calculate TVL using the formula: subsidy = normal turnover x turnover loss in % x share of fixed costs in % x 100%
Turnover = all income without received VAT and before deduction of costs and fixed costs.
To determine your normal turnover, we look at a specific period as a reference. You can choose the most favourable period from 2 periods, depending on when you started your business.
Your business’ start date is the date you registered at the Chamber of Commerce.
Did you register your business before 31 March 2019?
You can choose between turnover details from quarter 4 2019 or from quarter 1 2020.
Did you register your business between 1 October 2019 and 31 December 2019?
You can choose between turnover details from quarter 1 2020 or from quarter 3 2020.
Did you register your business between 1 January 2020 and 31 March 2020?
You can choose between turnover details from quarter 2 2020 or from quarter 3 2020.
Did you register your business between 1 April 2020 and 30 June 2020?
You submit turnover details from quarter 3 2020.
We compare your normal turnover to the turnover you expected in the subsidy period. We calculate turnover loss using this formula: turnover loss in % = (turnover - expected turnover October - December 2021) / normal turnover x 100
Share of fixed costs
To determine fixed costs, we use data from Statistics Netherlands (CBS). We do not look at your actual fixed costs. This way we can help as many businesses as possible, as fast as possible.
The share of fixed costs in the turnover for your branch is set and linked to your SBI code. After calculation, these must be higher than 1,500 euros for you to be eligible for TVL.
Examples of fixed costs are rent, lease, maintenance, insurance, and subscriptions.
Final subsidy amount
If you meet all the conditions for TVL, you will receive an advance payment of 80% of the amount we have decided based on your estimated loss of turnover. You must tell us your actual loss of turnover before a yet unknown date in 2022. Within 16 weeks, we will tell you the final amount you are entitled to.
- If your loss of turnover is the same as the estimated loss, you will get the last 20% of the TVL subsidy.
- If your loss of turnover is less than what you estimated, you will not get the full 20% that is left, or you will have to pay some of the subsidy back.
- If your loss of turnover is higher, you can get a higher subsidy, up to a maximum of 550,000 euros.
