Escrivá offers new quotas for freelancers to try to close an agreement: between 245 and 565 euros per month

The Ministry of Social Security has presented a new offer of quotas for the self-employed to Social Security for the reform according to their “real income”, with the intention that it be the last and try to close an agreement in the coming days or weeks. The last approach slightly lowers the minimum quota, slightly increases the highest quota for workers with higher earnings and proposes lower amounts for the so-called intermediate sections. In short, the fees would range from a minimum of 245 euros per month to a higher one of 565 euros per month, depending on the net income of the workers.

Specifically, the Ministry has proposed a minimum amount of 245 euros per month, five euros less than the last one proposed, on May 30. Against, for the highest income bracket, it proposes a monthly fee of 565 euros per month, 15 euros more than in the last document.

On the other hand, the biggest changes proposed by the Ministry of José Luis Escrivá refer to the contributions of the intermediate income brackets (“real income”), those self-employed with earnings between 1,700 euros and 2,300 euros per month. Social Security offers a new income “step” and reduces the contribution in two of them, compared to the last offer.

In this sense, the following tranches of income and quotas are proposed, according to negotiation sources:

  • For income between 1,700 and 1,850 euros per month: a fee of 370 euros per month30 euros less than in the last proposal.
  • For income between 1,850 and 2,030 euros per month: a fee of 400 euros per month, 40 euros less.
  • For income between 2,030 and 2,330 euros per month: a fee of 440 euros per monthsame fee.

Unemployment due to cessation with partial activity

Another of the most significant novelties is the concretion of the improvements in the so-called ’employment of the self-employed’, its benefit for cessation of activity, so that it can be collected with partial business activity. This possibility, which was tested in the pandemic, did not exist in the ordinary modality of cessation of activity.

The Ministry announced last week that the reform of the quotas for the self-employed would also go hand in hand with an extension of unemployment and social protection. This Monday, Social Security has come with a legislative text proposal, which will continue to be discussed in the coming days, with the intention of reaching an agreement shortly.
