a) Not be involved in anything that is prohibited in sections 2 and 3 of article 13, of the General Subsidies Law 38/2003, dated the 17th of November to be classified as a beneficiary; to this end, the entities shall submit the corresponding declaration of responsibility
b) Under no circumstances whatsoever can groups of individuals or legal entities, private or public, civil societies, joint ownership arrangements or any other type of economic unit or separate estate benefit from this scheme, despite the fact that even if they do not have a legal status, they can carry out activities eligible for subsidies.
Amount of the subsidy
The amount of the subsidy comes to €11.970. If the person hired is also a woman or someone with functional diversity, the amount goes up to €13.300; if it is a woman who has been a victim of gender-based violence or it is someone with severe functional diversity, the amount goes up to €26.600.
The contracts must be full-time, apart from those for people with severe functional diversity, in which case the contracts can be part-time, whereby they can be subsidised with a proportional reduction of the amount of the assistance (contracts of at least 15 hours a week).
The amount granted for the subsidies is paid in full in one lump sum, once the conditions established have been justified. Nevertheless, these subsidies are subject to there being enough credit available.
The starting date is the 19th of February, 2020 and the deadline is the 30th of June, 2020.
As well as what is provided for in article 14 of the General Subsidies Law 38/2003, dated the 17th of November, the obligations of the beneficiary are as follows:
a) Formalize the employment contract in writing.

d) While the subsidised contract is in force, the average number of registered employees working at the beneficiary company cannot drop, unless there are vacancies caused by voluntary resignation, death, unexpected disability, and retirement due to age or dismissal of the employee on disciplinary grounds or for objective grounds that are not declared to be unfair.
e) Within one month after the expiry of the job contract, supply the Report from the General Treasury of the Social Security concerning the average workforce of the company employing the registered employees while the contracts were in force. The obligation to maintain the number of employees will be considered to have been complied with if the average workforce report about the 24 months is equal to or more than the report about the average workforce of the 31 days.
f) Provide as much data and information as required by the LABORA Valencian Employment and Training Service about matters concerning the subsidies awarded.
