Single Social Security Entity (ΕΦΚΑ) – Aid in the form of a grant for fixed costs
Mon 30 Aug 2021
Circular e-ΕΦΚΑ 46 Prot. No. 327325
TOPIC: Aid in the form of a grant for fixed costs to businesses that were financially affected during the months of April to December 2020, due to the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.
The above provisions establish a state aid measure for businesses, which, as far as e-ΕΦΚΑ is concerned, is used for the repayment of the current insurance contributions of employers, exclusively for the salary periods June 2021 – November 2021 (6/2021 – 11/2021, meaning for insurance contributions that are payable from 01.07.2021 to 31/12/2021).
The entire process, during the first phase, has been implemented by the Independent Authority for Public Revenue (IAPR), which through an electronic platform has welcomed and processed the requests of the interested employers.
The amount of the aid has been integrated in the financial file of the employer, kept in the electronic services of our Institution (www.efka.gov.gr/Electronic services for employers / Financial file of the employer) and titled GRANT AID FOR EMPLOYER FIXED EXPENDITURES.
The amounts set off against the current insurance liabilities of the beneficiary businesses are covered by the state budget. E-ΕΦΚΑ collects and sends to the Ministry of Labor & Social Affairs the monthly data of the due insurance contributions that are offset and burden the state budget.
