The City of Helsinki’s business advisory service NewCo Helsinki has compiled a helpful list of links to dozens of organisations and representative groups that provide funding or counselling for companies hit hard by covid-19.
Among other things, it includes information on Helsinki’s decision to offer three-month rental payment exemptions to leaseholders of commercial plots as well as tenants of rented city-owned premises. It also outlines information on the 2,000-euro state grants for the self-employed that the City of Helsinki has started distributing, advance tax payment rescheduling and unemployment benefit eligibility.
NewCo Helsinki’s counselling services for business owners are free of charge and open to everyone. Ring tel. +358 (09) 3103 6360 on weekdays from 9 am to 3 pm for assistance, or go to the NewCo Helsinki website.Text by Pamela Kaskinen
