The Governing Board approves the bases of the call with an initial allocation of 40,000 euros
Employment calls for aid for new freelancers and companies in Benidorm in 2022
The Department of Employment and Local Development has started the call for aid for new freelancers and companies in Benidorm with the approval of the Local Government Board (JGL) of the bases that will govern its concession. Like last year, the amount budgeted for this aid amounts to 40,000 euros.
One of the main objectives of this aid, as indicated by the councillor Mónica Gómez, is "economic promotion and job creation in the city, which is why from the Department we have developed various lines of action to help achieve that objective".
The specifications establish that the beneficiaries of the aid will be the entrepreneurs who register as self-employed workers, with fiscal domicile in Benidorm, between January 1 and September 30 of this year. Thus, the beneficiaries must have started their economic activity between those dates. They must also be registered in the census of taxpayers and the Special Regime of
Freelancers before applying, but they must not have been registered in the three months before the start of the activity.
Nor may they have been beneficiaries of this aid in any of the two previous years and must be registered in Benidorm or request an opening license in a place located in the city.
The aid that will be granted will range between 800 euros for freelancers with fiscal domicile in Benidorm and registered or who are not registered, but process an opening license at the Town Hall, up to 1,200 euros for those who establish themselves as self-employed in Benidorm, are registered and process an opening license.
Applications may be submitted from the day following the publication of the bases in the BOP until December 31 of this year and the presentation must be made through the Electronic Office (https://sede.benidorm.org) together with the required documentation.
A technical commission will be in charge of evaluating the applications and proposing the approval or denial of the aid, as well as the allocation of the subsidized amounts.
Mónica Gómez has highlighted the "sensitivity of this government with the local productive fabric and entrepreneurship, especially in times of uncertainty and economic difficulties". In that sense, Gómez recalled that last year this aid finally reached 139 beneficiaries and 135,200 euros were allocated.
The councillor, on the other hand, has specified that in addition to this direct aid, the Employment and Local Development Agency "also supports with other actions the start-up of new business projects through constant advice to those who decide to take this step or offering a 'coworking' space in which they can start their activity”.
