The Government proposes a rise in contributions of 260 euros to the self-employed - La Provincia

Thegovernmenthas proposed to the autonomous organizations arise in contributions for the group of self-employedIndividuals of "at least" 260 euros next year and 340 euros a year for corporate self-employed workers, according to the National Federation of Autonomous Workers' Associations (ATA), which has warned that it will not accept the proposal.

This has been pointed out by the president of the organization,Lorenzo Love,in statements to Europa Press, in which he warns thatATA will not accept the proposal two weeks ago, which was practically double,nor the latter formulated by the Governmentin the meeting held by the Secretary of State for Social Security, Octavio Granado, and representatives of Employment and Social Security with autonomous organizations.

Amor has detailed that the proposal of the Executive is a rise in contributions for self-employed (individuals) of "at least" 260 euros per year, and for corporate self-employed of 340 euros per year, which means that they face 13 installments per year, one more than in the current year.

"If the proposal of 500 euros was unacceptable, this is also unacceptable",Amor has pointed, since "70% can not pay more than what they pay and ATA will not allow them to suffocate".

In addition, explained that the Government offers "theoretically" better benefits, which has branded "scam" as the provision of unemployment, since "does not work" by denying 60% of those who request it. Therefore, he asks that the issue of benefits and access to them be solved first and then quotes be discussed.

In any case, ATA will send a proposal to the Government "very far" from the last one raised by the Executive, but that "they can pay the self-employed", so that the minimum base can rise what has gone up on average the last 25 years and the issue of benefits is solved.

"If in two weeks ATA has been able to halve the proposal that the Government said, I hope it has the will to know what can be paid by the self-employed," he stressed.

In addition, he recalled that in recent days Podemos and its secretary general, Pablo Iglesias, had claimed to have agreed with the Government that there would be "not a single euro" for the self-employed, so he hopes that after this last proposal they will pronounce about.


This stumbling block in the social dialogue has occurred after this morning ATA was grateful that the Ministry of Finance,"after months of negotiations with the Tax Agency", has attended to the request of the collective with the announcement by the branch minister, María Jesús Montero, of the extension of the billing limits for self-employed by modules, which will help more than 400,000 freelancers to stay in this type of Taxation in 2019.

In a statement, ATA recalls that of the 3.2 million self-employed, 1.5 million do so by direct estimation, more than 400,000 by the system of modules and the rest as companies.

The current legislation contemplated that from 2019 the thresholds for taxation by the objective estimation system (modules) were hardened, so that the billing threshold from which the taxation in modules was vetoed went down from 250,000 to 150,000 euros and, in the case of billing to other companies, from 125,000 euros to 75,000 euros.

The exclusion limits of the system will remain as follows:when the complete returns of the self-employed person surpass 250,000 euros, when the turnover to other entrepreneurs or professionals exceeds 125,000 euros and when the purchases in goods and services exceed 250,000 euros.
