Turnover support for trading partnerships
Trading partnerships that have experienced a substantial decrease in turnover as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic can apply for financial support. The County Administrative Board is responsible for administering the support, but you should submit your application to the National Board of Housing, Building and Planning.
The e-service for applications is closed.
What does the support involve?
The support is divided into three support periods:
- December 2021
- January 2022
- February 2022
For the December 2021–February 2022 support periods, the support is 90 per cent of what you lost in your net turnover compared with the same period in 2019.
The corresponding month or months in 2019 constitute the reference period for each support period.
Information on previous support periods
The application period for the support periods from August to October 2020, November to December 2020 and January to February 2021 ended on 15 June 2021. The application period for the support periods from March to June 2021 ended on 15 September 2021. The application deadline for support periods July to September 2021 was 30 November 2021.
Who can apply for the support?
Trading partnerships with at least one natural person registered as a partner as of 31 December 2021 which have suffered a substantial loss of turnover as a result of the ongoing pandemic can apply for turnover support.
What requirements must be met in order for the County Administrative Board to award the support?
The conditions for receiving the support include
- the trading partnership had a turnover of at least SEK 180,000 during the whole of 2019 x the number of partners as of 31 December 2021
- the loss of turnover was caused by the pandemic
- the trading partnership did what could reasonably be expected to exhaust the possibilities of obtaining insurance compensation, damages and similar compensation for the lost turnover used to calculate the support.
In order for the support to be awarded, the net turnover for
- December 2021 to February 2022 must have been less than 70 per cent of the net turnover for the reference period in 2019.
How much will I receive in support?
The maximum ceiling for each support period from December 2021 to February 2022 is SEK 24,000 x the number of natural persons who are partners in the trading partnership.
When is the application deadline?
The deadline for applications was 2 May 2022.
An application using a paper form and any additions to an e-application must be sent by ordinary post to:
Länsstyrelsen i Östergötlands län
Enheten för särskilda stöd
581 86 Linköping
When will the National Board of Housing, Building and Planning pay the support?
The County Administrative Board will process applications in turn as they are received. The time it takes to get a decision can vary for different cases. This could be because an application needs to be supplemented or it could depend on how fast decisions are made at the County Administrative Board in question. That in turn depends on how many applications are received.
You will be notified when the County Administrative Board has reached a decision about the case. The National Board of Housing, Building and Planning will then pay the support. It could take up to a couple of weeks after the decision has been taken before the money reaches the applicant’s account.
Who does what?
The County Administrative Boards are responsible for issues regarding support, processing, decisions concerning support and the follow-up of support that is distributed.
The County Administrative Board of Östergötland is responsible for coordinating the work of the county administrative boards relating to the support.
If you wish to appeal against the County Administrative Board's decision, you should do so via the Administrative Court.
The National Board of Housing, Building and Planning is responsible for developing the forms and the e-service for the support. The National Board of Housing, Building and Planning also distributes the support that is awarded.
Why did the government introduce the support?
The coronavirus has had a sudden and substantial impact on many business owners. Some business owners have been unable to benefit from the measures that have so far been introduced during the ongoing pandemic, such as support for short-term layoffs and reorientation support.
