You may have received financial corona support from different organisations. This means that if you do have to repay, you probably cannot repay in one go: you may have to repay several amounts of money to several organisations.
We will continue to update this page as details change, so check here.
Do you have to repay corona support?
Whether or not you need to repay, and how much, depends on your situation. Examples of when you will have to repay are:
- The money you received was a loan. Examples: Tozo credit, or the small credits guarantee for SMEs (KKC).
- You received too much money. For example, because your turnover was higher than you had expected. The organisation that paid the corona support money will calculate for each application period whether or not you need to repay them.
- You were granted a special tax payment extension. If you owe tax money, you always have to repay.
Different refund dates
The different corona support schemes have been paid out by different organisations, in different time periods. You may therefore have to deal with different refund dates.
What can you do?
Make sure that your business records are up-to-date and correct. If you have debts, make an overview. Are you unable to pay your bills? Talk to your creditors, and ask them if they are willing to let you repay in instalments; draw up a payment plan.
Do you worry that your business may not be able to continue? KVK has a special Business in trouble section that may help you find the way forward.
Do I need to repay?
Repaying corona loans
To support entrepreneurs, the government has expanded several existing loans. Such as the SME credits guarantee scheme (BMKB), Business loan guarantee scheme (GO), and Seed Capital scheme. There are also new credit loans such as the Corona re-launch credit for SMEs (TOA) and the Small Credits Guarantee for SMEs scheme (KKC).
The conditions for repayment are different per scheme. Check with the organisation that provided the loan.

Paying tax debts
Special tax payment extension
As of 1 April 2022, you can no longer get a tax payment extension. And you have to pay new tax obligations on time again.
