What is the SME e-wallet?
The SME e-wallet is a subsidy measure of the Flemish government. This encourages small and medium-sized enterprises within the Flemish Region to invest in their most valuable business unit, namely their personnel.
The following conditions apply::
- The subsidy contribution applies to all courses of AXITO, which are followed by workers in a Flemish company with the aim of improving the current or future business functioning.
- You must follow the course with study guidance from your AXITO teacher.
The road to a 30% subsidy via the SME e-wallet
Our AXITO employees are happy to help you submit the subsidy application. To receive a 20 to 30% subsidy on the tuition fee, you only need to follow a few steps:
Step 1. Select a course and register with AXITO
Register yourself or your employee(s) with AXITO (by telephone, in writing or via our website). Note on the form "payment by employer via SME e-wallet". Write down the address details of the student and of your company.
Step 2. Subsidy request
Go to https://www.vlaio.be/nl/subsidies-financiering/kmo-portefeuille and submit a request for funding for the AXITO course. Please note: your right to a subsidy expires 14 days after the start date of your course.
Step 3. Confirmation of course request
As soon as the request for a subsidy for the course has been submitted, this will be confirmed by AXITO via the SME e-wallet.
Step 4. Deposit of tuition in electronic wallet
You will receive a request from the SME e-wallet to pay your part of the tuition fee for the course.
Step 5. Course payment
After your part of the tuition fee has been paid, the remaining amount will be supplemented by the Flemish government.
Step 6. Payment confirmation
To ensure that the payment is processed correctly, activate it on the SME e-walletwebsite.
