Coronavirus Walloon Region: don't lose sight of the deadline for your premium application

Author: Anne Ghysels (Legal Expert)

The Walloon Region grants a premium to the sectors that are currently still closed. Two clarifications are being made.

As mentioned in our Infoflash of 2 March 2021, this premium could not be applied for before 10 March 2021.

The government has now set a deadline for your application: it must be submitted by 9 April 2021 at the latest.

In addition to the conditions that must be met, you are only eligible for the premium if the number of employees you employ, calculated in full-time equivalents, as stated in our Infoflash of 2 March 2021, is less than 250.
