Social Security proposes raising the quotas of the self-employed when contributing by real income: they will go from 183 to 1,266 euros

The Government has kicked off the negotiation of the contribution by real income of the self-employed with associations of self-employed workers. For this, the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations has presented a higher 13-section proposal than the one announced to social agents in May 2021.

At that time, the department headed by José Luis Escrivá proposed that the self-employed pay between a minimum of 90 euros per month and a maximum of 1,200. Now, the lowest tranche, which is income below 600 euros per month, would have to pay Social Security 183 euros per month. That is the minimum fees are doubled.

Meanwhile, the self-employed with higher incomes, from 4,050 euros per month onwards, would have to pay 1,266 euros per month, a more moderate increase. However, sources of the negotiation assure that the Government would be willing to negotiate all these figures.

Beyond the sections (which have been designed in collaboration with the Tax Agency), Social Security has proposed to the self-employed that the system be flexible and that the self-employed can change income bracket up to six times a year.

As indicated at the meeting by the representatives of the Ministry, two out of three freelancers would reduce their contributions compared to the current system, of modules. Those with lower incomes would pay up to 1,300 euros less per year and those with benefits of between 600 and 900 euros per month, a very large group, almost 600 euros less per year.


On the other hand, those who would contribute more would have more future benefits and are, according to this interpretation, largely corporate, which will offset this increase with deductions.

In addition, the flat rate during the first two years for those with incomes below the minimum wage (SMI), although it increases to 70 euros. This flat rate was not included in the May proposal.

This system of tranches would be applied gradually over nine years: between 2023 and 2031, although the situation would be evaluated every three years. The government’s idea is to approve the new model before July and start applying it next year.
