How does it work?
To make use of the measure you have to submit an application to INVEGA. The list of consultants and consultation topics is available on the website of the Business Consultants Network.
Costs will only be reimbursed upon receipt of a report from the Business Consultants Network detailing consultations provided and paid for no later than by the end of the second month following the reporting calendar month.
How is the amount of reimbursement calculated?
Sample calculation: a business has been operating between 1 and 3 years, the reimbursement level is 85% and the fixed hourly rate is €83.21/hour. For a 2-hour consultation the business shall be reimbursed as follows: 2*83.21*85% = €141.46.
