We need cash, ” says Sven Erik Renaa, the chef that for just a few weeks ago was rewarded with the two star in the Michelin guide.

on Thursday, the government drafted a package of measures for the business sector, the so-called “cash allowances”. The scheme is mainly meant to hit small – and medium-sized businesses.

Companies can get covered expenses like rent, power, insurance and interest costs for a particular utregningsnøkkel. No one gets covered everything.

The hit the different. We had hoped that vat would be paid or get a lower rate for a period of time. We do not have as large fixed costs in the day, but we have a backlog of wages, holiday pay and value-added tax, says Renaa.

“the Neighbor” Ostehuset has been a part of restauranttilbudet in the city in 20 years. 95 per cent of the 60 employees are laid off, and it is unclear when they can get back on the job.

the Owner Hanne Norman Berentzen looks a little brighter on the stimulus package than Renaa.

This is a nødpakke, and we see that there are many considerations to take. But this means that we can now lower your shoulders and breathe out a bit in easter and gather the strength to see new possibilities, ” says Hanne Berentzen who owns the Ostehuset in Stavanger.
