The law of 29 January 2021 establishes a new temporary de minimis aid scheme for self-employed workers in the context of COVID-19.
The Luxembourg government has decided to reinforce the support to self-employed people affected by the financial consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. On 8 January 2021, the Council of Government approved, on the proposal of the Minister for Small and Medium-sized Businesses, a draft law aimed at introducing a new, one-off, non-reimbursable financial aid for the self-employed.
This measure is a renewal of the measure LU-2020-19/965
The law provides for a one-off grant of €3,000, €3,500 or €4,000. It is given according to the income bracket in which the person falls. The subsidy is intended for people who are primarily self-employed and affiliated with the social security system.
