The online application has a start date and an end date which can be changed by the applicant.  In cases where an applicant wants to apply for part of a period (because they started/stopped working in Malta, or moved to Gozo from Malta/to Malta from Gozo) the start and/or end date should be changed to reflect the period of eligibility for the subsidy.  The subsidy payment would then be issued pro-rata.  In cases where overpayment has been issued because of an incorrect date being inputted by the applicant, the applicant would be asked to re-imburse the overpaid amount.
