From the end of this month, the government will relax the loan requirements for a virtually interest-free, unsecured loan system for small and medium-sized enterprises whose sales have fallen due to the effects of the new coronavirus.

In order to support the financing of small and medium-sized enterprises, the government has established a system for financing with virtually no interest or collateral through private or government-affiliated financial institutions.

In order to use this system, it was a requirement that sales in the last month fell by 5% to 20% or more compared to the same month last year, but the government has relaxed the requirement from the end of this month. However, we have added the average of the last 6 months to the target sales period so that you can select it.

In addition, the deadline for application is to be extended until the first half of next year if using a government-affiliated financial institution, and until March next year if using a private financial institution. I want to support.

In addition, "sustainable benefits" that provide up to 2 million yen per business to small and medium-sized enterprises affected by the new coronavirus, and "rent support benefits" that reduce the burden of rent are also available. If there are special circumstances such as the documents not being prepared in time, we have decided to flexibly respond by extending the application deadline, which is until January 15, next year, to the end of January.
