Covid-19: Solidarity Fund of May 2021

Solidarity Fund for May 2021 - Reception ban
There are few changes to the Solidarity Fund for May 2021.
However, the end of lockdown and the recovery of economic activity have important consequences on eligibility for aid.

> Here is a summary of the situation:

If the rule of the sectors of activity persists, it will however be necessary to be vigilant to the consequences linked to the progressive reopening of businesses.

Thus, a retail business that reopens can no longer apply for aid under the uninterrupted ban on receiving the public. Consequently, if the retailer has not lost at least 20% of its turnover, it is no longer eligible for aid.
If the loss is between 20% and 50%, the aid is capped at €1,500. It will therefore be necessary to have suffered a loss of turnover of at least 50% to be able to claim the aid ceiling of €10,000 or 20% of the reference turnover.

Please note: companies in sectors particularly affected by the crisis may be affected by these changes. Indeed, if they have not suffered a loss of at least 50% of their turnover, they can no longer apply for aid for their sector and are de facto in this case.

As the restrictions in the coming months are expected to ease, there will be significant changes for June 2021.
Thus, companies in the S1 and S1 bis sectors should be subject to a degression of aid for the months of June to August, before it disappears.
Opened companies should be excluded from the scheme from June.
Only those businesses that are still effectively closed will remain eligible for the current scheme.

To help you, please find below our explanatory diagrams of eligibility for the different levels of aid.

Attention: if you started your activity between 01/11/2020 and 31/01/2021, you are not concerned by the condition of a decrease in turnover of at least 80% between November 1st and 30th 2020. Consequently, if the decrease in your turnover is greater than 1,500 euros, you can therefore apply for aid in proportion to the latter or to its decrease, if applicable.
