One of four companies that have applied for support during the Coronavirus crisis has been rejected, figures from the Tax Administration show.
It is Dagens Næringsliv that has collected the figures on how many companies have received funding from the government’s crisis package during the Coronavirus outbreak. The Tax Administration’s figures show that 32,433 companies have received approval to their applications, while 11,002 have been rejected.
In total, over NOK 1.9 billion has been paid in compensation support for March and April.
– There are several reasons why applications are rejected. One reason may be that the company does not meet all the criteria for receiving grants from the compensation scheme or that the application has insufficient information. It is possible to reapply and it is possible to appeal a rejection. The deadline for complaints is set at six weeks, writes section head of division Stine Olsen in the Tax Administration to the newspaper.
