Providing help during the outbreak

The Dutch government has extended the deadline for self-employed entrepreneurs and freelancers to apply for temporary income support until 30 September. Known as BBZ Tozo, this financial assistance scheme does not require viability or capital tests, and eligibility is determined by checking the income of the applicant and their partner.

If you already received a loan during the first part of the programme, the amount you previously obtained will be applied towards a limit of €10,157. Applicants must have Dutch citizenship, citizenship from a Europe Union country or a valid residence permit, and live in Amsterdam or Weesp.
