This is the new quota system for freelancers proposed by Escrivá

The government has presented to patronal Y unions a new proposal to reform the price of the self employeds and match it to your income. These are the details.

1. Fees of between 183 and 1,266 euros per month

The Social Security proposal contemplates a scheme of 13 income brackets, according to which each self-employed worker will pay a monthly fee depending on how much he earns. The idea is that the higher the income, the higher the quota. Something that does not happen today, since it is each self-employed worker who chooses, regardless of what he earns, what quota he wants to pay. The scheme proposed by Escrivá is progressive and initially starts with a small gap between the highest and lowest quota. To then grow as the new legislation comes into full force. At the beginning the lowest quota will be between 281.52 euros and 351.9 euros; to progressively move to a fork between 183.6 and 1,266.6 euros per month.

2. How will the income be calculated?

The income calculation system designed by Social Security understands the concept of ‘income’ as’net returns‘. That is, the income declared by the self-employed to the Treasury minus the expenses derived from the activity and with the category of deductibles. Such as the salaries of workers in charge, supplies, social security, supplies or professional services, among others. This section has yet to be defined and is one of the keys to the new system. One of the criticisms he has launched they is that the self-employed who can be deducted more will pay less than the self-employed with the same income, but who cannot deduct anything. Because the former will be estimated to have higher returns than the latter.

3. What happens if I enter more or less than expected?

Social Security has devised a flexible scheme, in which the self-employed can change up to six times per year of quota, depending on how the business is doing. The operation, initially, will be as follows: the self-employed will make an estimate and choose which quota best suits their performance forecasts. You will pay that fee, but if you see that you enter more or less than expected, you can process the change and go on to pay more or less. And at the end of the year Hacienda It will make a cross between your contributions and your income and if you have overpaid it will return you and if you have underpaid it will demand the difference.

4. When will the new system go into effect?

The Government’s intention is that the new contribution system for the self-employed is approved before the June 30, 2022, begins to have economic effects on 2023 and is fully operational in 2031. There will, therefore, be nine transition years in which the amount of the tranches will gradually be modulated. However, negotiations with employers and unions are still open and there may be changes in this regard.

5. Will there continue to be a flat fee?

Yes, Social Security intends to enable a flat rate of 70 euros during the first two years, designed for those with incomes below the minimum interprofessional salary.
