Companies that have benefited from it may also want to learn how to account for Covid aid. Some aids are still accessible, however. Such is the case of the state-guaranteed loans (PGE).
Regardless of its size and status, a company whose cash flow has been affected by the health crisis can apply for this scheme until June 30, 2022.
While the deadline for applying for aid from the solidarity fund set up to support companies weakened by the Covid-19 has been set at 31 March 2022 in mainland France, the scheme has been extended until the end of the year in overseas France. On the other hand, companies can still benefit from the APLD (long-term partial activity). This allowance, co-financed by the State and Unédic, is intended to secure employment in companies experiencing a lasting drop in activity. The APLD has been extended for an additional 12 months for companies that have already benefited from it and those who wish to use it.
It can be implemented until December 31, 2022.
