Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier: “Cohesion and mutual solidarity are the order of the day. We are not leaving our companies and their employees alone in this serious situation.

The application is possible from the last week of November 2020. The first installments will also start in November. “Federal Finance Minister Scholz:” We are together in this pandemic. This also means that we help quickly and unbureaucratically. Now we are launching advance payments for self-employed individuals and companies. It is important that the application and the first payouts are still possible in November. That is good news for the self-employed persons and companies affected by the measures in November and their employees. ”The advance payment procedure comprises the following points: Self-employed persons receive an advance payment of up to 5,000 euros; other companies receive up to 10,000 euros.
