The Dutch government is going to pay out the subsidy for fixed costs, the so-called Fixed Cost Allowance (TVL), more quickly to catering establishments. That will let the Koninklijke Horeca Nederland (KHN) know on Friday. According to the trade association, most of the entrepreneurs receive the support within three weeks. Earlier in the day, the same association caught the court bluntly about allowing the TVL to be paid out faster.
The case revolves around the payment of part of the allowance for fixed costs (TVL). Catering companies are entitled to this, because they have been closed for quite some time due to the lockdown. The scheme was expanded in December, so that companies that suffer extra loss of turnover also receive extra support.
Earlier this year, however, it became clear that this additional support is taking longer than expected. Catering entrepreneurs received a letter stating that this money might not be deposited into the account until four months later. This caused great irritation at the relevant catering companies and also at the trade association KHN, which went to court. However, the preliminary relief judge ruled on Friday that the case belonged to the administrative judge, after which KHN was declared inadmissible in the case.
