Nuevas remesas ayudas

The grants range between 800 and 1,200 euros per entrepreneur

Benidorm City Council has resolved a new remittance of aid to new companies and freelancers who have started their activity in the city within the 2021 call. In this first list of the year, 33,000 euros have been awarded to 36 entrepreneurial projects, which at least have been active for 4 months.

The Councilor for Employment and Local Promotion, Mónica Gómez, has indicated that "only in this remittance half of the projects have already been attended to in all of 2021, which shows that Benidorm does not give up undertaking and is a city that offers opportunities”.

Specifically, until the end of 2021, 72 requests for aid were approved, for a total amount of 69,400 euros, to which these 33,000 euros are now added; compared to 21,850 euros that were granted in 2020 and 25,725 euros in 2019.

Gómez recalled that "the City Council launched this aid several years ago as one more measure for support  people who started up a business generating employment or self-employment." "Due to the pandemic -she specified-, last year we decided to double the amount of aid because we understood that in difficult times, such as the one we have been suffering, it is necessary to double efforts and encourage entrepreneurs to develop their projects ”.

Thus, the amount of aid for entrepreneurs who establish themselves as self-employed workers with fiscal domicile in Benidorm and registered in the city was increased from 400 to 800 euros; while the amount was increased from 600 to 1,200 euros for those who also processed a business license at the Town Hall. As a novelty, an aid of 800 euros has been considered for the self-employed with fiscal domicile in Benidorm, who are not registered in the city, but who process the license to open their business in the municipality.

Throughout the year, “and intending to meet all the applications submitted and that met the requirements, we increased the budget allocation for these aids from 40,000 to 70,000 euros; an amount to which is now added, charged to this year's budget, another 33,000 euros”. In this way, "we have multiplied by four the aid granted in 2020", although this percentage will increase in the coming weeks since it is expected that the Technical Commission in charge of these aids will meet again to evaluate a new remittance.

Regarding this first remittance approved today by the Local Government Board (JGL), among the 36 projects launched in the last months of 2021, there are food, health, hairdressing and beauty establishments, hospitality and services, graphic design activities, advertising and public relations, legal and business advice, performing arts, vehicle repair or electricity.

Gómez has stressed that "this government team has always defended that the best social policy and support for families that can be done at the moment is to favour the generation of employment, and this line of aid is one of the various actions that the City Council has been put into operation to achieve this goal, in this case supporting new companies or entrepreneurial projects”.
