The First Vice President of the Government and Minister of Economic Affairs and for the Digital Transition, Nadia Calvio, announced this Monday that it is designing a clarification to the direct aid decree so that the autonomous communities, if they wish and still have available resources, can launch an additional call in order to reach more SMEs and the self-employed.
In statements to Telecinco collected by Europa Press, Calvio responded like this when asked about the complaints of small companies and freelancers that the aid is not arriving because it is only being granted to those who have pending invoices and not to those who have losses due to the Covid but they are not delinquent.
The vice president explained that, from the point of view of the requirements of these grants, for which 7,000 million euros were budgeted, the criteria established are those that appear in the subsidy laws and has specified that what is requested to access This aid is to prove that the billing has fallen as a result of the Covid and that there are outstanding debts, utility bills or financial debts or that the company has had losses and that the partners have assumed them.
“We are preparing a clarification of this Royal Decree-law so that the autonomous communities that have resources and that want to obtain an additional call can do so and can carry out (these grants) to the maximum between now and the end of the year “, the vice president stressed.
Calvio has recognized that the rhythm in the granting of this aid is varying a lot in the different communities, that some go faster than others, but he has insisted that the Government is willing to support those regions that are granting the aid more slow.
In any case, he stressed that the fact that in some regions there is a lower demand for these aid shows that all the effort made since March of last year to strengthen the business fabric and avoid widespread bankruptcies is bearing fruit.
Last week Calvio already announced that the Government had asked the European Commission to extend the extraordinary framework of public aid in response to Covid-19 beyond December 31 to be able to extend the term of direct aid of 7,000 million for SMEs and the self-employed due to the existing delays in some autonomous communities.
