How is the amount of compensation calculated?
Sample calculation: a business has been operating between 1 and 3 years, is registered in the Municipality of Klaipėda City and is charged a fixed hourly rate of €63.21/hour, then for a 10-hour consultation the business shall be reimbursed as follows: 10*63.21*65% = €410.87.
INVEGA will receive information about the number of actual consultations and their duration in hours from the Business Consultants Network.
