The Government foresees that the self-employed begin to contribute to the Social Security based on your actual income as of January 1, 2019, so they will not be negatively affected by the rise in the Minimum Interprofessional Salary (SMI) to 900 euros.
Government sources have indicated to Efe that the Government's intention is that the reform of the self-employed regime be in force on January 1, which will start to quote contributions based on their real income, which will mean a reduction in the self-employed workers with less income.
In this way, the Ministries of Labor and Finance guarantee that the rise of the SMI to 900 euros agreed by the Government and United We Can it will not negatively affect the quotation of the self-employed.
In addition, should the reform not be in force in January, the Government would de-link the minimum wage increase from the minimum quota.
The Government considers that PP and Citizens are generating a "scaremongering" that is "unjustified" among the self-employed, since the contribution for real income was foreseen in the budget agreement.
The president of the federation of autonomous ATA, Lorenzo Amor, has been concerned about the rise in the minimum wage will be "a hard stick" for the million self-employed employers who will see their labor costs increased.
