Government-guaranteed loan (GPL) and Resilience GPL

Verified 17 January 2024 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

The PGE (loan guaranteed by the State) "Resilience" open to companies who have suffered the economic consequences of the conflict in Ukraine ended on December 31, 2023. The EMP for companies impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak ended on June 30, 2022.

When companies taking out these loans encounter difficulties in repayment of their maturity, they may, in certain cases, benefit from rescheduling.

The government-guaranteed loan (GPL) to help companies particularly affected by the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic ended june 30, 2022. It is therefore no longer possible to benefit from it.

Companies who encounter difficulties in repaying their maturities may refer the matter to the credit ombudsman or to a departmental adviser for companies in difficulty (previously called the departmental adviser for resolving the crisis).

The Resilience Page was then put in place to support companies that had a significant cash need because of the conflict in Ukraine, for example in the following cases:

  • Increase in the price of certain raw materials (cereals, metals, energy)
  • Supply Chain Disruption
  • Suspension of payments from Russia or Ukraine
  • Loss of trade opportunities due to international sanctions

It is no longer possible to benefit from it since the December 31, 2023.


All aid to assist companies in recovering from the crisis is listed on the basis of data

No refund is claimed in the first year.

The loan can be repaid over 6 years maximum.

In the event of difficulties in repaying the EMP, the company has the possibility to refer the matter to the credit ombudsman or to a departmental advisor for companies in difficulty (previously called departmental advisor for resolving the crisis). The choice depends on the amount of the EMP obtained.

  • Certificate from a public accountant or auditor that the company is not in default and cannot repay its 2022 installments
  • Proof from the bank that it has been contacted by the company and that it directs it to credit mediation

  • Extending the repayment term two more years. Exceptionally, the duration can be up to 4 years.
  • Offset by 6 months repayment of the first installment.
