FAQ for support and recovery packages due to the coronavirus pandemic
Did you receive remuneration as part of the temporary emergency measure for the preservation of jobs (NOW)? All of the NOW schemes (NOW1, NOW2 and NOW3) provide compensation for labour costs to employers who have suffered substantial loss of turnover as a result of the coronavirus crisis. For correct statistical processing, these payments should be included under labour cost subsidies in the Personnel block of the 2020 Annual/Production Statistics.
Did you receive remuneration as part of the availability of public transport scheme? As this payment is intended to cover the cost of continuing to run a full timetable of public transport services, for correct statistical processing it should be included in the Other Revenues block of the 2020 Annual/Production Statistics.
Did you receive any other kind of remuneration, for instance under the reimbursement of fixed costs (TVL) or the entrepreneurs’ allowance for sectors affected by Covid-19 (TOGS)? For correct statistical processing, the payments from these other schemes should be included under exceptional income and expenses for the 2020 Annual/Production Statistics.
Important: All payments received for coronavirus support and recovery packages must not be included in the short-term statistics; in other words, the short-term turnover figures requested must always exclude any coronavirus remuneration received.
