We are Acture Subsidies. We help employers apply for grants, benefits and allowances from the government. For example, your employer is entitled to money if you have been ill for a long time. Even if you are no longer employed, your previous employer may still be entitled to subsidy.
The best way to find out if a subsidy applies to you is by asking you a few questions about your past jobs on behalf of your employer. That is why you received an email from us about this with a login code for a questionnaire.
Log in with the code in your email. You will see some questions. Please enter your answers to all questions. This will help your (previous) employer and us enormously. The questions are relevant to the work you did previously and any benefits you received. These answers will help us find out whether your (previous) employer is entitled to a subsidy.
If you have received benefits, your employer may be entitled to a subsidy. For example if you get sick. This money makes it easy for your employer to keep you employed.
Yes. In that case you have probably received a letter about this from the Dutch Institute for Employee Benefit Schemes (UWV) or the tax authorities. We would like you to send us a copy of this. You don’t have the letter anymore? No problem.
Yes, you must always answer the questions. That way we know what’s going on and we no longer have to send you a reminder to complete the questions, for example.
Yes, you must always answer the questions. We can also help your former employer(s) with a subsidy, up to 5 years back.
It’s up to you to decide whether you want to cooperate. There is no law that obliges you to do this. But please keep in mind that you will be helping your (previous) employer if you provide the answers. And if you are still employed, the subsidy makes it more attractive for your employer to keep you employed.
Your employer shared your details with us; we only use them for this grant research and remove them again afterwards.
We handle your data properly, in accordance with the privacy law. We therefore only use your data to apply for a subsidy from the Tax Authorities or UWV. As soon as the subsidy has been received or rejected, we will delete all your data. If your (previous) employer entitled to subsidy, we will only share your information with someone from your (previous) work in order to properly record it in the accounts.
Nothing really changes for you. It may mean that your employer can keep you employed for longer, because they receive extra subsidy for this.
No. Nothing changes.
Sometimes we do not receive a reply. We then send reminders. This can be done by email, text message, post or by telephone. We will ask if you still wish to cooperate in the research.
If you have not yet completed and returned the questionnaire, you will receive an email, text message, letter or a call asking you to do so.
It appears from your answers that you are in receipt of or have applied for a benefit. Your employer may therefore be entitled to a subsidy. This requires a target group statement from UWV. We want to submit a request for this and that is only possible if you authorise us to request that statement on your behalf by (digitally) signing; that is what the authorisation is for.
Your name is in the target group register of UWV. That is why your employer is entitled to a subsidy. This requires a target group statement from UWV. We want to submit a request for this and that is only possible if you authorise us to request that statement on your behalf by (digitally) signing; that is what the authorisation is for.
The target group register is a national register, which includes all people who fall under the job agreement. UWV manages this register. The Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment check whether employers adhere to the agreements. For example, by creating jobs for people with an occupational disability. Employers may check with whether you are in the target group register and whether you count towards the job agreement by using your social security number (BSN). For example, your employer may be entitled to a subsidy.
