How much can your enterprise claim in grants?

Here, you can calculate the grant that the enterprise is eligible to receive.

Grants are calculated according to the number of workers or contractors who have been in mandatory entry quarantine. Grants of up to NOK 1,000 per day per worker or contractor in entry quarantine may be awarded. Travel quarantine spent in a quarantine hotel following the public quarantine hotel scheme is not covered by this scheme.

  • the grant may not exceed the added costs incurred by the enterprise during the grant period.
  • the grant will be reduced against the enterprise’s added costs if the added costs are less than the daily rate
  • the grant will be reduced for compensation received for the added costs
  • a grant will not be given for more than 20 quarantine days per worker or client per grant period

If the enterprise is eligible for a grant, 80% of the costs for verification of the application will be refunded, subject to a maximum of NOK 15,000 for each grant period. The cost of verification is entered in the application.

Example – calculation of grant amount

To calculate the grant amount for a grant period, you must know:

  • added costs for the period
  • number of workers and/or contractors where the applicant was responsible for implementation of quarantine during the period
  • number of quarantine days during the period
  • compensation received for added costs
Added costs 120 000
Employee 1 14 days Daily rate 1000   14 000
Employee 2 16 days Daily rate 1000   16 000
Contractor 1 10 days Daily rate 1000   10 000
Total daily rate   40 000
– Compensation received             0
Calculated grant   40 000

 

Added costs exceed the total daily rate, so there is no reduction in daily rate payment.

Added costs 30 000
Employee 1 14 days Daily rate 1000 14 000
Employee 2 16 days Daily rate 1000 16 000
Contractor 1 10 days Daily rate 1000 10 000
Total daily rate 40 000
– Compensation received           0
Calculated grant 30 000

 

Added costs are less than the total daily rate. Calculated grant will therefore be reduced to the total of the added costs.

Added costs 120 000
Employee 1 14 days Daily rate 1000   14 000
Employee 2 26 days* Daily rate 1000   20 000
Contractor 1 10 days Daily rate 1000   10 000
Total daily rate   44 000
– Compensation received           0
Calculated grant   44 000

 

*No grant will be paid for more than 20 quarantine days per worker. Worker 2 exceeds the maximum number of quarantine days. The total daily rate is therefore reduced.

Added costs 120 000
Employee 1 14 days Daily rate 1000   14 000
Employee 2 16 days Daily rate 1000   16 000
Contractor 1 10 days Daily rate 1000   10 000
Total daily rate   40 000
– Compensation received   15 000
Calculated grant   25 000

 

The calculated grant has been reduced as a result of compensation already received.
