The Chamber of Commerce (KvK) has created a special Corona-counter for self-employed professionals. You can go here to get answers on any question related to your work situation.
Financial support for self-employed
Are you self-employed and experiencing short-comings? As a self-employed worker you can now find out if you are eligible for ‘Financial support for self-employed professionals’. This initiative is for self-employed professionals and starters. You can read more about the allowance in this blog.
Temporary bridging measure for self-employed professionals (Tozo)
Due to the coronavirus, the government has announced a new regulation for self-employed who are experiencing financial difficulties: Temporary bridging measure for self-employed professionals (Tozo). Self-employed professionals can claim an allowance for 3 months which doesn’t need to be repaid. The measure has been extended under the name Tozo 3 from 1 October 2020 to 1 April 2021. Tozo 4 applies from 1 April to 1 July 2021. For Tozo 4 there’s no equity test. More information about Tozo 4 will be announced early 2021.
Postponement of filing turnover and income tax
In order to soften the financial impact on self-employed professionals due to Coronavirus, the Tax Authorities are taking measures on paying taxes. Are you coming short to pay your taxes because of this uncertain period? You can now ask for a deferment. This also applies in case you have already filed your taxes and received an assessment.
Applications for postponement or extension of postponement are possible until 1 July 2021. Self-employed professionals who have not previously applied for postponement or extension can still do so. Have you been extended before? In that case, this now automatically applies until 1 July 2021. The date on which you are going to repay will shift from 1 July 2021 to 1 October 2021. You’ll have 36 months to repay your tax debt.
