Self Employed, Corona Virus

Post by alberti » Wed Mar 18, 2020 11:50 am

I am an self employed person with a small cleaning company. Due to this horrible situation, all my clients cancelled my services. Suddenly income down to O €. There must be many more like me, who has their own private company`s. What is our protecting? We are not entittled for any benefits, but bills keep coming in like rent,phone,insurance etc etc. For self employed people you have to get first the Virus(into quarantine) to get daily allowance according to Kela !!! Really ?? Stay Safe everybody

There are various actions the government is taking or planning to take. They are very much aware of the situation for SMEs. There have been discussions regarding tax reliefs, postponing of loan repayments at least.
If you speak Finnish, please follow the discussion in the media.
Sorry for your situation, it will be tough times for many people.

When you have no revenue coming in, you can seize activities as self employed and sign up as a job seeker to get unemployment benefits.

If you have no savings, you will be also eligible for social assistance.
