The Government wants to toughenflat rate paid by the self-employedto Social Security when they begin their activity to ensure that they do not abandon the Special Scheme for Self-Employed Workers (RETA) once they stop benefiting from this reduced fee.
The reason, according to Social Security, is that only 30% of the people who benefit from the flat rate are kept in the Special Regime of Self-Employed Workers (RETA) after its completion.
"The rest stops quoting, goes abroad or is employed as an employee ", as the Ministry of Labor argues in the base document to reconfigure the RETA that has been transferred to the self-employed organizations and to which Europa Press has had access.
In the Work proposal, the periods given by quotedthey would be considered as part timeif, after the reduction of quotas, at least a minimum period is not in the RETA, yet to be determined.
Quote for all contingencies
Work argues that 85% of the self-employed under 45they quote for the minimum wage, that is, the minimum base of the system. Over 45 years, there are self-employed voluntarily opting for a larger base, but the vast majority is still quoting for the minimum base, which in the end has its reflection in worse benefits than those received by the workers of the General Scheme.
The rise of the minimum interprofessional salary by 22.3% contemplated in the draft General State Budgets for 2019 would imply that the minimum contribution base of the self-employedwill also increase in the same proportion. But the Government wants to avoid to the collective an increase of this magnitude. Now, it is clear that to obtain better benefits, the self-employed have to contribute more.
The self-employed currently contribute for common contingencies and temporary disability, with a joint rate of 29.8%, and with aminimum base of 932.7 euros per month. It is voluntary to quote for cessation of activity (unemployment) and for professional contingencies (some are required, but not all).
In the Work proposal, the self-employed would have to quote for these three contingencies in a compulsory way and for another, the training one, and propose three different scenarios to be assessed by the self-employed organizations.
We can say it will not accept uploads
We may have warned the Government of Pedro Sanchez that it will not accept the increase of quotas "to any autonomous" and that the agreement to carry out the Budgets of 2019 contemplated the reduction of the quotas to those who entered less than 12,000 euros a year.
This has been assured by his secretary of organization,Pablo Echenique, who in a Twitter message echoed the information published this Wednesday 'Cinco Días', about the proposal transferred by the Ministry of Labor to the ATA and UPTA organizations.
"It is important to make it clear, this is not what we agreed on, the agreement is not to increase the fee to any self-employed person and to lower the fee for self-employed workers who enter less than 12,000 euros per year." The government must rectify, "said Echenique. a message posted on your Twitter account and collected by Europa Press.
