The Redován Town Council has launched aid to minimise the economic impact of COVID-19 on SMEs, micro-SMEs, small self-employed entrepreneurs and professionals with tax domicile in the municipality who have been affected by the economic consequences of the pandemic. This aid of up to 3,000 euros per application, will be granted through the subsidy of 58,578.33 euros granted by the Provincial Council of Alicante to the Consistory redovanense, and interested persons have from today until 22 October to apply for them through the Electronic Headquarters of the City of Redován, where you can also consult in detail the rules of the call published yesterday in the Official Gazette of the Province of Alicante. SMEs, micro-SMEs, freelancers and professionals who have reduced their turnover by at least 25% compared to the average monthly turnover in 2019 will be eligible for this aid. A microenterprise is considered to be one that has a maximum of 10 workers and has an annual turnover or balance sheet of no more than two million euros. In addition, they must meet a series of requirements specified in the rules, such as being registered in the IAE in the municipality on 31 December last year or that the tax domicile is in Redován. Councillor José Nájar explained that these are direct aids intended to cover current expenses paid between 1 July 2020 and 30 June 2021. The councillor explained that the aim is to “provide liquidity to companies to facilitate their maintenance and with it, the employment of people from our town”. Eligible expenses include self-employment fees, rent for premises or business, consultancy and advisory services, telephone and internet costs, etc. However, other types of expenses such as cash payments or VAT and other taxes and fees will not be eligible for subsidy, as these are not concepts that can be included in this type of aid. The application period is 15 days after publication of the rules in the Boletín Oficial de la Provincia. Plan Resistir On the other hand, the Redován Town Council, through the Local Government Board, has approved the grants from the Plan Resistir of the Generalitat Valenciana which “began to be paid last Friday 24th September. This is a total of 52 grants to micro-companies and self-employed in certain activities related to trade and hospitality that had a maximum amount of 2,000 euros per application,” said the mayor.
