I feel forced to record this video.
I am in a very dire situation that I would like to tell you about.
I am Patrick. I am 27 years old and I have a business in the United States night catering in Amersfoort.
My company has been closed for eight months. This means that I have been out of work for eight months and have therefore had no income for eight months, but I have to meet my payment obligations, private and business, for eight months because my fixed costs continue to be charged for private and business purposes!
I have therefore done everything to ensure that my company continues to run.
For example, at the beginning of this corona period I have my company unenchanted to become ice cream parlour.
In order to be at work and thus to create a little turnover to keep my head above water.
Now months later.
All kinds of government support packages and emergency schemes have been put in place to support affected entrepreneurs and businesses.
I also applied for this scheme on July 1 of this year.
It is now October 29th.
We are 4 months later.
And still I have no reaction received from the RVO, at least I set up a reporter from the AD and if the RVO [Rijksdienst Voor Ondernemend Nederland] seems to be in the news negatively, then suddenly all sorts of things can be arranged because I have just arrived called by an employee of the RVO.
With the telephone notification that my application has been REJECTED.
The rvo two demands to be able to claim under that scheme.
Requirement 1 is a revenue loss of 30% and requirement two is a fixed burden 4000 euro over a course of three months.
I meet both requirements.
I have a loss of turnover of 100%!
And I also have a fixed charge of 4000 euros.
I have all evidence required: tax returns, rental agreements, etc. have been sent along to demonstrate that I meet both requirements.
En However my arrangement has been rejected.
AND I DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT AT ALL.
The RVO calculates with certain percentages, averages determined by Statistics Netherlands for each sector. And based on that, I just seem fall out of the boat.
So am I. in objection gone and am now informed that there are CANNOT my situation is looked at.
Despite all my evidence !!
And they know that I have a company that has been locked for 8 months. And that I have been paying all my payments for eight months.
SO I HAVE BEEN PUMPING MY OWN PRIVATE MONEY INTO THE CASE FOR 8 MND.
To keep things going.
I did everything I could through the ice cream parlor story.
I meet all the requirements of the RVO.
But I had to 4 months waiting for a response!
If I hadn't set up a journalist myself, I still wouldn't have had a response now !!!
HOW DO YOU DESTROY HERE IN THE NETHERLANDS.
This is too poignant for words !!!!!
I'm going to take you back in time.
10 months ago.
I had a thriving business, I worked very hard for it for four years. A financially healthy company.
I had a nice girlfriend. I was in a relationship and I lived in a nice house.
Now, all these months later:
My company has been locked for 8 months, no work for 8 months, no income for 8 months and I have been paying all my fixed costs for 8 months.
My relationship is out.
I lost 10 kilos from the stress.
And I am heavy depressedbecause I get into it every day uncertainty awake not knowing how much longer this will go last ...
Please people help me with this situation.
This is the last thing I can do.
I am on the phone every week.
With the RVO, with the ombudsman, with the legal counter. With the municipality, with the media.
And nothing or nobody can arrange something for me. And it all takes so long.
Please help me by sharing this video so that this case gets a bit of attention nationwide. Who knows it will cause something ...
Try to put yourself in my position and support me. This is the last what else I can do.
I JUST DON'T KNOW ANYMORE. I'M JUST GET MENTALLY BREACHED HERE.
