The National Federation of Associations of Self-Employed Workers (ATA) has denounced this Wednesday that the Government has not yet set a date for the extension of the cessation of activity for the self-employed. In this line, the president of ATA, Lorenzo Amor, criticized on the social network Twitter that despite the fact that several meetings have already been held to agree on the extension of the Employment Regulation Expenditures (ERTE), the autonomous ones continue to be «the last »to be summoned.
Likewise, Amor takes the opportunity to reel off the ATA proposals “if the Government wants an agreement that gives certainty to the self-employed.” First, ATA requires thate the requirement to access the benefit is eliminated which requires having been a beneficiary of the cessation of activity between March and June.

From the association they also claim the exemption from the contribution similar to that of the general regime workers in the ERTE of limitation to all the self-employed who see their activity restricted by administrative order at whatever level of administration. “It is not logical that those who cannot carry out their activity at 100% pay 100% contributions,” they add from ATA.
Finally, ATA asks that the quota increase planned for 2021 – as a result of the agreement reached in 2018 – be postponed and that the increase not be executed until 2021.
