Hifluence is a service provider for KMO-portefeuille


We are proud to say that Hifluence is again recognised as a service provider for KMO-portefeuille from November 2019.

This allows us to assist our clients with our strategic advice pillar with the support of VLAIO.

What is KMO-portefeuille?
The KMO-portefeuille is a grant from the Flemish Government that allows you, as an entrepreneur, to obtain external advice with financial support.

The aim of the KMO-portefeuille grant measure is to improve the quality and operation of your own business.
Hifluence is a recognised service provider for offering advice under the KMO-portefeuille.

With this measure you, as a company or self-employed person based in Flanders, receive a grant of 30% to 40% on the advice we provide.

An application for the SME portfolio can be made via the website of the agency Innoveren en Ondernemen.
Our SME-P approval number is DV A222455.

In all cases, the request for payment via the KMO-Portefeuille must be made at the latest 14 calendar days after the start date of the cooperation for the provision of the services. 

You can apply for support from the moment of signing, even if the assignment has not yet started.

Who can make use of the KMO-portefeuille?
The subsidy can be used by SMEs, liberal professions, the self-employed and the self-employed in a secondary occupation.
The VLAIO uses the European SME definition.
In addition, your enterprise must also have an acceptable legal form with an establishment of your enterprise in Flanders.
An administrative authority may only participate in the company for less than 25%.
In other words, your company is in private hands.

The advice can only be offered under SME portfolio if your company has an ‘acceptable main activity’.

The Crossroads Bank for Enterprises contains the business activities of your company (in the form of NACEBEL codes).

If your main activity is on the list and your company generates the most turnover, you can make use of the SME portfolio.

What advice is eligible for the KMO-Portefeuille?
Strategy is a crucial aspect of business management. It has an impact on the growth and stability of an organisation.

Companies that find their way back into the market often lack the right tools, insights and sounding boards to outline their strategic path.
For a lasting strategic advantage, you need to ask yourself how you as a company can develop the capacity to make the right choices.

The KMO-portefeuille can give you the extra support you need to work out your strategy.

Hifluence assists you with the necessary tools, triggers and tips for the growth of your company.

In order to support your strategic decisions before proceeding to the implementation of the policy choices made. Di

Using structured models and workshops, our consultants will guide you through the process.

So that you develop crystal-clear answers to your strategic vision.

There are two possible types that are eligible for a subsidy:

Written advice and recommendations that consist of an analysis of the problem, an actual advice, an implementation plan and guidance during implementation.
Written advice and recommendations that consist of identifying, mapping and investigating opportunities and solutions with regard to the business functioning of the company.
If you have the idea that an external sounding board can provide a clear view on your plans, do not hesitate to contact us.

You are always welcome in one of our offices or we are happy to visit you for an exploratory meeting.
