Only those who work in specific sectors of activity have the opportunity to obtain this 2019 web bonus. Moreover, the list of these sectors of activity is visible on this page.
What about the projects to be carried out?
The type of web project concerned by the 2019 web bonus
We have only scratched the surface of the subject in the introduction to this article, but now we are getting to the heart of the matter:
One, it can be the creation and launch of a website, including e-commerce platforms. Then, any other project, as long as it concerns the improvement of a site, meets the conditions for the 2019 web bonus:
- Sales positioning;
- Repositioning of the sale;
- Optimization of the site or e-commerce platform.
Moreover, it must be a one-off project, and certainly not a permanent or regular one. In general, its duration does not exceed 6 months.
Calculation of the 2019 web bonus
The 2019 web premium rate varies according to the situation. Let's start with the lowest rate, that of 40% of the amount of the external consultancy service. For this rate, none of the criteria just explained is verified.
Then, if even one of these conditions is met, the rate would be 50%. Finally, it is 60% for the lucky ones, i.e. for those who manage to meet all the required conditions.
Amount of the 2019 web bonus to know
Whatever the rate adopted (40, 50 or 60), the exact amount of the web premium per calendar year should in no case exceed 5000 euros. And in one year, only one bonus can be granted.
As for the minimum amount that can be requested per mission, it is 500 euros.
A 10% Bonus
Checking certain points can be beneficial for you. By doing so, you will be able to get a 10% bonus.
Here are the criteria to consider:
- The date of registration of the company with the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises: if it is very recent, i.e. less than four years old.
- The status of the company:
- if it is a certified social enterprise (to do so, meet us here).
- if it is a company "involved in the circular economy". A circular economy recognition is therefore required, and preferably obtain it three months before the bonus application.
- It must be active in one of the priority sectors.
- Last but not least, it is in possession of a diversity label or a diversity plan. More information on this subject is available at this page.
