As from today, 14 April 2020, the persons concerned may apply for the aid of EUR 2,500 on the basis of the Grand Ducal Regulation of 8 April 2020 on the establishment of a certified emergency allowance for the self-employed in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The application form is now available on Guichet.lu. The request is submitted through an online assistant available through the business space of MyGuichet.Lu using a Luxtrust product (e.g. Token, Smartcard or Signing stick) or an electronic identity card. This online application was developed by the Ministry of the Economy with the support of the Government IT Centre (CTIE).
As a reminder, the granting of this aid is subject to several conditions. The applicant must thus encounter temporary financial difficulties due to the consequences of COVID-19, employ less than 10 people and his professional income serving as a basis for calculating social contributions must not exceed the amount of two and a half times the minimum social wage.
The Minister for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses, Lex Delles, points out that "we want to offer a digital form that makes the application process easier for the self-employed".
Detailed information are available on Guichet.lu.
