Culture and Sport publishes two guides with frequently asked questions about the extraordinary provision for self-employed people and ERTEs in the cultural field


The Ministry of Culture and Sports has published two guides with frequently asked questions about the extraordinary benefit for cessation of activity of the self-employed and the application of ERTE (temporary employment regulation files), to help mitigate the effects derived from COVID-19 in the field of culture.

With these guides, the Department intends to resolve the doubts that both small and medium-sized companies, as well as the self-employed, who mainly occupy the cultural sector, may have in order to be able to take advantage of these government support measures.

Who can obtain the extraordinary benefit, for how long it will be received or what amount it represents, as well as the procedures to file an ERTE due to force majeure or for economic, technical, organizational or production reasons, are some of the questions to which answers are given in these documents.
