The Ministry of Social Security presented this Thursday at the social dialogue table to reform the Special Regime for Self-Employed Workers (RETA) a new contribution proposal for real income for this group that would set thirteen different sections, with fees from 183 euros for those who earn the least up to 1.266 euros for those who more.

The first stretch of income be for those who have income less than 600 euros per month, while the highest will be for those who enter ms of 4,050 euros. The self-employed will be framed in one or another section depending on their income, although they may change the band up to six times throughout the year to be able to adapt to the evolution of their income.

Is flexibility It is specially designed for the tourism sector, since, for example, a seaside bar in a town in Valencia could have very high income in high season and very low in winter, sources from the Ministry have explained to this medium.

Taking into account the level of income currently obtained by the more than 3 million self-employed in Spain, Social Security estimates that the new system will benefit 66%, who will have to pay less per month with this modality. Those who enter less than 600 euros per month will have a annual savings of 1,300 euros, while those who earn between 600 and 900 euros per month will pay 600 euros less each year.

There will be 33% of the self-employed, those who earn the most, who They will see their quota increased, although the Ministry has not reported in what quantity.

If approved, the new system enter into force in 2023 but the freelancers will have a transitional period of 9 years to apply it during which your quota will progressively increase or decrease towards the corresponding section. Every three years from 2023, the self-employed associations may meet to decide whether to maintain that 9-year horizon or to shorten it.

Flat rate only two years and for income below SMI

Faced with the claims of some associations such as ATA (the majority of the sector); the Ministry of Jos Luis Escriv has decided maintain the flat rate for the first two years of activity, although this will only apply to freelancers with Income below the Minimum Wage (that is, 1,125.83 euros per month).

The Ministry has left the meeting optimistic since, despite receiving some specific requests from some associations, the proposal has had better reception than expected and they have only focused on technical criticism.

But nevertheless, Lorenzo Love, president of ATA, has criticized the proposal on Twitter at the end of the meeting.

Next Monday they will meet again to continue the negotiations. The new listing system must be approved before the end of the first semester to be able to fulfill what was promised to Brussels in the Recovery Plan.
