Compensation under the Infection Protection Act Grant for compensation of uncovered operating expenses
In the event of a ban on employment or a quarantine, you, as a self-employed person, are entitled not only to compensation for loss of earnings but also to compensation for continuing uncovered operating expenses, such as rents or loans. This only applies to operating costs that cannot be avoided. You must also keep operating costs as low as possible. Reimbursement shall be made to an appropriate extent. This is a so-called "can-perform". In other words, the LAVG has room for manoeuvre to assess whether a claim exists and how high it is.
