> 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.
