PRODUCT FEBRUARI 2015
Starting as an entrepeneur
Benefit clients who want to start their own business, can now receive training for 'Self-employment with unemployment benefits ' on Werk.nl. The online training replaces the briefings at the UWV (Employee Insurance Agency) offices.
Because the training is available online, those interested can take the training at any time, even when they don’t yet receive unemployment benefits from UWV. The certificate of participation in the briefing/training is one of the conditions for submitting a request to start in the WW (Unemployment Insurance Act) with the starter’s arrangement. You also need permission from the UWV before starting. As part of this process, the jobseeker needs to draft a business plan and after talking with an advisor of UWV on the allocation of the research or start-up period.
