Self-employed persons can already submit applications for “nursing allowances” (No. 963)
The Ministry of Industry and Trade has already begun receiving applications for “nursing allowances” for the self-employed (sole traders). The application can only be made on the prescribed form, which can be found here.
As we have already informed you, there has been a considerable tightening of conditions for its provision compared to the spring:
- The subsidy can no longer be combined with a compensation bonus;
- The age of a child who is unable to attend school and for whose care a subsidy can be applied for, is reduced from 13 to 10 years;
- The amount of the subsidy per day changed from CZK 500 to CZK 400.
It is possible to make electronic filing of the application via a data mailbox; applications submitted by e-mail with a certified electronic signature or by postal services will also be accepted. Subsequently, after the approval of the application, the subsidy will be sent to the bank account of the self-employed person specified in the form.
Currently, it is possible to apply for nursing allowances for the period from October 14, 2020 to October 31, 2020; the application is to be submitted no later than December 9, 2020.
