Launched in March 2020, the solidarity fund has helped, to the tune of 37 billion euros, companies weakened by the Covid-19 crisis. While the situation tends to improve in metropolitan France, it remains tense in the overseas territories and communities which have been hard hit by the 4e epidemic wave. This is why certain rules for accessing the solidarity fund for the months of June, July, August and September 2021 have been revised.
Overseas companies in the most affected sectors
These changes implemented by the decree of October 14, 2021 relate to the regime reserved for companies belonging to the most affected economic sectors (see appendices 1 and 2 of decree n ° 2020-371 of March 30, 2020) and which have not is the subject of a ban on welcoming the public during the compensation months. They only concern companies domiciled in Guadeloupe, Guyana, Réunion, Martinique, Mayotte, Saint-Martin, Saint-Barthélemy, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, New Caledonia, French Polynesia and in Wallis and Futuna.
As a reminder, among other conditions, to benefit from the solidarity fund for June, July, August or September 2021, these companies must have benefited from the solidarity fund for the months of April or May 2021. However, to the extent that it there were no restrictions in the overseas departments, regions and communities concerned during these two months, the obligation to have received, for at least one month, assistance from the solidarity fund has just been extended to a period from January to May 2021.
Another change: if until August 2021 were also eligible for the solidarity fund, in this category of aid, retail businesses (excluding automobile and motorcycle businesses) and ship maintenance and repair companies in certain overseas territories ( Réunion, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint-Martin, Saint-Barthélemy or in French Polynesia), they were no longer available for September. The decree of October 14 has just re-established these beneficiaries in respect of the aid paid for that same month.
Note: the amount of aid corresponds, for these different beneficiaries, to 20% of the loss, capped at 20% of the reference monthly turnover or € 200,000. It can reach 40% when the company is domiciled in a territory where the duration of curfews and / or confinements has exceeded 20 days in September 2021.
To obtain this help, requests must be made electronically on the “private” area of the business manager on the site www.impots.gouv.fr
Important: for the months of June, July and August, applications must be submitted until October 31, 2021. For the month of September, the deadline is November 30, 2021.
