12 December 2019 INSS Communication file to companies on certain situations of persons registered in their CCC –FIE

From 11 November, the FIE file reported in the RED News Bulletin 04/2019 of 8 July is being sent.

This file is always sent to the main authorisation user.

It is sent daily -not weekly are reported in the Bulletin- and is only sent for CCCs with modifications consolidated in the INSS databases. If there are no modifications, the file will not be sent for those CCC.

Meanwhile, note that although it is received via SILTRA, this application does not process the file so it must be processed using personnel payroll and management programs.


21 November 2019 - Amendment in deduction calculation limits.

The  rules for applying limits to fixed-amount deductions will be reviewed. 

  • Modification of  fixed-amount deductions when they do not affect the full payment period.

Although Article 7.2 of Law 43/2006 of 29 December, improving growth and employment, establishes that “in no case may deductions exceed 100 per cent of the employer Social Security payment that should have been paid”, this limit must be applied to  brackets in which the worker has been recognised the right to the benefit, without extending it to the full payment period. Thus, is a worker has three brackets, two with right to deduction and the third without, the limit is applied to the employer payment for brackets 1 and 2.

  • Modification of limits when fixed-amount deductions and percentage deductions overlap.

In this case, percentage deductions are applied first and secondly fixed-amount deductions to which the employer payment limit for contingencies covered will be applied less the amount applied for these same contingencies in the percentage deduction.

Example:

A CCC worker in Melilla who also has a 50% deduction in the employer payment for common contingencies and Other Contributions (PEC 01007) is entitled to a fixed-amount deduction in the employer payment for common contingencies of 125.00 euros (PEC 16003).

  • First we calculate the percentage deduction at Registration Number level (PEC 01007)

  • Next, we calculate the fixed-amount deduction:
    Potential monthly deduction PEC 16003 (Monthly deduction amount to which they are entitled without considering any limit): €125
    Theoretical fixed-amount deduction limit (Sum of highest limits of each PEC in each bracket) = 123.90
    Accepted monthly deduction limit PEC 16003 (common contingencies payment limit - common contingencies deduction PEC 01007 applied): 247.80 – 123.9 = 123.9

  • Modification of screens for the RED Direct “Consulting calculations”  and “Preparing Settlements” services.

As a result of these changes, the appearance of the current “Consulting calculations” and “Preparing Settlements” (RED Direct) services screens have been modified to detail the amount of deduction calculations.

These modifications are expected to be implemented in December  and will affect all payment periods sent from that date.


11 November 2019 - Communication SAA 420 Thomas Cook Business group

In relation to the modifications described in BNR 6/2019, of 25 October, on the identification of insolvency procedures for the Thomas Cook business group by entering an Additional Affiliation Situation (SAA) 420, these records can now be entered for the month of October 2019.

Remember, the  entry period for identifying the deduction for October will be open until 29 November 2019.

During the months of October, November and December  2019, a single TYPE SAA 420 record entry with DATE FROM October will be sufficient to identify workers entitled to the deduction detailed in Article 2 of Royal Decree Law 12/2019; a single TYPE SAA 420 record entry with DATE FROM November can also be entered for those only entitled in November and December; a single TYPE SAA 420 entry record with DATE FROM December must be entered for those only entitled in December. A TYPE SAA 420 record can also be created for each month with deduction. In other words, they can be entered independently.


11 November 2019 - Report on workers with previous operations in a CCC by Primary CCC and authorisation

The feature for obtaining a Report on workers with previous operations in a CCC has been modified so the report can be requested for all the CCCs of an authorisation, or for a Primary CCC and all its secondary CCCs.

Initially, this request can only be made by Online affiliation. It will later be developed for batches.


6 November 2019 - Communication of Collective Agreement code for workers provided to user companies from temporary employment agencies

The modification referred to in BNR 6/2019, of 25 October, on TEAs with only one collective agreement has been implemented. These cases will no longer require entering the temporary employment agency collective agreement through an ACT action in batches, or “entering worker collective agreement” in the online service to provide the worker available to a user company.


25 October 2019 - RED News Bulletin 06/2019

The RED News Bulletin 06/2019 is now available in the RED news area. It contains the following items:

  • Port employment centres -CPE-.
  • Royal Decree-Law 12/2019: effects of the Thomas Cook business group initiating insolvency proceedings.
  • Communication of collective agreement code for workers provided to user companies from temporary employment agencies.
  • Part-time contracts for partial retirees and replacement contracts: communications.
  • Modification in the means of entering certain special character values in the employment relationship field.
  • New control of maximum bases for workers with part-time contracts not registered for the whole month.


27 September 2019 - New control of maximum bases for workers with part-time contracts not registered for the whole month.

Currently, in the case of workers with part-time contracts who are not registered for the whole month,  we validate that the contribution basis does not exceed the maximum monthly basis without considering days contributed. 

A new control will be incorporated in early October to adjust the maximum basis to the days the affiliated worker is obliged to make contributions. This new control will apply to all settlements, regardless of the payment period they refer to.

Example:

Group 5 worker registered with a part-time contract from 1 to 8 June reports 42 hours worked,  with remuneration of €3200.

Until now, if the user reported a basis of 3200 there was no error (it is less than the maximum monthly basis).

With the new control, the limit to the maximum basis for this worker will be:

Maximum daily basis (135.67) * number of days registered at the company with content in the CTP field (8) = €1085.36; this will be the maximum amount the company can communication for this worker in this payment period.


13 September 2019— RED Authorised users: new addresses for contacting the TGSS.

  • Since 16 September, the telephone service(901 502 050) will provide support to RED authorised users with new operating hours: from Monday to Friday, except national public holidays, from 9:00 to 14:30.    
  • For queries related to sending files or using Red System or Direct Settlement System services, RED authorised users must send the query to the email inbox of their Provincial Directorate, enabled for this purpose and listed in the RED News Bulletin 05/2019


13 September 2019- RED News Bulletin 04/2019

The RED News Bulletin 05/2019 is now available containing the following items: 

  • Company Working Life Report Campaign.
  • News on the TGSS Support Service.
  • New option in the Query Service and Obtaining Receipt after deadline.
  • Manual update


13 August 2019 FDI File: automation of the “PLANNED EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT END DATE” field for permanent contracts.

When entering birth and childcare certificates in the Special Agricultural System, the “PLANNED EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT END DATE” field is defined as required. As permanent contracts have no planned end date and the field must always be filled in for this special system, the fictitious date of 31.12.2024 must be entered until the new version of SILTRA/WINSUITE32 is published and the field is changed to optional.


8 August 2019-New option for self-employed workers in the service  "Debt management"-"Query and obtain receipt after deadline".

In the “Consult and obtain receipt after deadline” service (in the “Debt management” option of the main RED System-Online contribution menu), workers in the Special Scheme for Self-Employed Workers and Self-Employed Sea Workers  can obtain a receipt for payments paid after the deadline (TC1/31) with the 10 % surcharge for the whole period in which this percentage applies.

To date, in these schemes the document with the surcharge could only be obtained during the last few days of the month following the regulatory deadline, once the relevant debt had been generated in the General Collection File.

To resolve this inconvenience, a new Option 3 has been included in the service named "SELF-EMPLOYED WORKERS: PAYMENT AFTER DEADLINE 10% SURCHARGE (Art. 30.1.a.1 RD Leg.8/2015)".

Access requires entering the interested party’s registration number, selecting the scheme (0521 for RETA or 0825 for self-employed REM) and indicating the settlement period, taking into account that only periods with a regulatory payment period ending the month before requesting the receipt will be accepted. Otherwise, either of the two existing options should be used.

If the data entered are valid, a screen will be displayed to select and print the requested document.


7 August 2019-"Scheme 0811: Registration workers on work placement in companies, institutions or entities included in training programmes"

Section 2 of the Additional Provision five of Royal Decree Law 28/2018, of 28 November, for the revaluation of public pensions and other urgent social, labour and employment measures, provides, with regard including persons on training programmes and unpaid and academic work placements in the Social Security system, that they “will be covered by the General Social Security Scheme, similar to workers employed by another person, excluding unemployment protection, unless the work placement or training take place on board vessels, in which case they will be included in the Special Social Security Scheme for Sea Workers.”

In order to identify workers on work placements or training programmes in the Special Sea Worker Scheme, the relevant modifications have been implemented in the General Affiliation File.

Thus, they must be registered in CCC with TRL 986 and the RLCE field must contain one of the following values: 9922- PARTICIPATION IN TRAINING PROGRAMMES, 9923- UNPAID WORK PLACEMENTS, 9927- EXTERNAL ACADEMIC WORK PLACEMENTS and 9928- EXTERNAL CURRICULAR WORK PLACEMENTS.

Additionally, details of the VESSEL must be entered in the employment relationship and a field has been created for this purpose.

This new feature is currently only operational for Online affiliation; the batches option is pending until publication of the new SILTRA/WINSUITE32 version.

Thus, when a new CCC is to be assigned in an authorised person, in order for a certain CNAE09 value to be accepted, this value must have been previously entered in our system for the employer. Otherwise, a new CCC cannot be assigned. In this case, the automated CNAE09 value must be checked and, if it is correct, you must go to a Social Security General Treasury Office with documentation accrediting the activity so the new value can be entered in our system.

2 April 2019-Royal Decree-Law 8/2019: Converting temporary agricultural worker contracts into permanent and intermittent-permanent contracts.

Article 7 of Royal Decree Law 8/2019, of 8 March, on urgent measures for social protection and the fight against precarious employment during working hours, published on 12 March, on converting temporary agricultural worker contracts into permanent and intermittent-permanent contracts, establishes that:

  1. Companies employing workers under the Special System for Foreign Agricultural Workers employed by another Person established in the General Social Security Scheme, which transform, before 1 January 2020, temporary employment contracts signed with such workers, regardless of the date they are signed, into indefinite contracts, including intermittent-permanent contracts, will be entitled to the following deductions to the employer contribution for common contingencies to the Social Security during the two years following the transformation of the contract
    a) If the contract refers to workers in contribution group 1, with monthly contribution bases and with a monthly contribution less than 1,800 euros, the deduction will be 40 euros/month (480 euros/year). In the case of female workers, these deductions will be 53.33 euros/month (640 euros/year).
    b) If the contract refers to workers in contribution group 1 who contribute for actual days worked and their daily contribution is less than 81 euros, the deduction will be 2 euros/day. In the case of female workers, the deductions will be 2.66 euros/day.
    c) If the contract refers to workers in contribution groups 2 to 11 with a monthly contribution basis less than 1,800 euros or a daily contribution basis less than 81.82 euros, the deduction will be the sum necessary so that the resulting payment for common contingencies is no more than 88.15 euros/month, or 4.01 euros per actual day worked. In the case of female workers, the deduction will be the amount necessary so that the resulting payment for common contingencies is no more than 58.77 euros/month, or 2.68 euros per actual day worked.

  2. The deductions provided for in paragraph 1 will not apply during situations of temporary disability, risk during pregnancy and risk during breastfeeding, as well as birth and child care occurring while active, as referred to in Article 5.7 of Royal Decree 28/2018, of 28 December, in the wording given by this royal decree-law.

  3. To apply this incentive, the company must maintain the contracted worker in employment for at least three years from the date of transforming the contract. In the event of failure to comply with this obligation, the incentive shall be reimbursed. 

  4. The provisions set out in chapter I, section I, of Law 43/2006, of 29 December, for the improvement of growth and employment will apply to any issues not established in this provision, except as provided in Article 2.7.

Moreover, final provision six, on entry into force, states that “this royal decree-law shall enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official State Gazette”. However, paragraph 3 states that “the provisions of Articles 2, 4, 7 and 8 of this royal decree-law shall enter into force on the first day of the month following its publication in the “Official State Gazette”, that is, on 01-04-2019.

Actions in the scope of affiliation

Temporary agricultural worker contracts converted into indefinite or intermittent-permanent contracts for which the employer requests application of the deductions regulated in Article 7 of Royal Decree-Law 8/2019 when settling payments will be identified with CONTRACT TYPE 109, 209 or 309, as appropriate, and value V in the UNEMPLOYED STATUS ACCORDING TO COMPANY field.

Value V in the UNEMPLOYED STATUS ACCORDING TO COMPANY field will be available throughout the week starting 8 April 2019. Worker variations due to converting temporary contracts into indefinite or intermittent-permanent contracts requested up to the date this data is available and with data variation date equal to or after 1 April 2018 will be communicated with CONTRACT TYPE 189, 289 or 389, as appropriate, and with no content in the UNEMPLOYED STATUS ACCORDING TO COMPANY field.

The correction of such data variations, in order to enter CONTRACT TYPE values 109, 209 or 309 and UNEMPLOYED STATUS ACCORDING TO COMPANY with V value, must be requested from any Social Security Office by 19 April.

Only records with value V in UNEMPLOYED STATUS ACCORDING TO COMPANY field will be entered when they meet all terms and requirements established in Article 7 of Royal Decree-Law 8/2019 and section I, chapter I of Law 43/2006, as well as all other applicable regulations for access to and maintenance of deductions from payments, as well as when any of the exclusions applicable to the benefit in question are not covered. Entering records with value V is a statement of compliance with all requirements necessary to access that benefit and of not falling under any of the exclusions that would prevent access.

The special contribution rules that will be applied to workers entitled to payment deductions regulated in Article 7 of Royal Decree-Law 8/2019, will be as follows:

51: Workers with contribution group 1 and contribution by monthly bases
52: Workers with contribution group 1 and contribution by actual workday
54: Workers with contribution group 2 to 11 and contribution by monthly bases
55: Workers with contribution group 2 to 11 and contribution by actual workday

However, special contribution rules 51 or 54 will apply to workers with contribution by actual workday and who completed 22 or more days’, as appropriate according to their contribution group.  

The INCENTIVISED GROUPS to be applied, depending on the different circumstances, will be as follows:

1821: Workers with contribution group 1 and contribution by monthly bases. Men
1822: Workers with contribution group 1 and contribution by monthly bases. Women
1823: Workers with contribution group 1 and contribution by actual workday. Men
1824: Workers with contribution group 1 and contribution by actual workday. Women
1825: Workers with contribution group 2 to 11 and contribution by monthly bases. Men
1826: Workers with contribution group 2 to 11 and contribution by actual workday. Men
1827: Workers with contribution group 2 to 11 and contribution by monthly bases. Women
1828: Workers with contribution group 2 to 11 and contribution by actual workday. Women

Actions in the scope of contributions

These deductions will be calculated according to the following rules, depending on whether it is a deduction for group 1 or groups 2-11, and the chosen contribution method.

Although these specific rules appear in the worker's affiliation data (IDC, worker file and brackets and file/service for  consulting calculations), they will only apply to payment when the worker’s contribution basis is less than 1,800 euros (for all monthly contribution groups) or 81 euros (for contribution group 1 with daily method), or less than 81.82 euros (contribution groups 2 to 11 with actual workday method).

Its amount will be applied to item 760 “deductions charged to SEPE”.

  • Calculation of deduction for workers with contribution group 1.

Deductions for workers with contribution group 1 will be identified with PEC 51 (monthly contribution) or 52 (actual workday) and payment fraction 03 “common contingencies”.

1. The following rules will be taken into account to check whether the deduction is applicable

  • For a monthly worker, add the contribution bases of all brackets and check if the amount is less than 1,800 euros. If the worker is not registered during the entire payment period, the sum of contribution bases of all brackets divided by the no. of days contributed must be less than 60 euros (result of dividing 1800/30).
  • For a worker with actual workdays, check that the sum of all bases for all brackets divided by the no. of actual workdays is less than 81 euros. If the worker completes 22 actual workdays or more, check that the sum of contribution bases for all brackets is less than 1,800 euros.
    • In the monthly method, the deduction will be identified with PEC 5103. The deduction amount (40 euros or 53.33 in the case of female workers) will be divided by 30 and multiplied by the no. of days contributed in the bracket. The last bracket will be adjusted to reach the monthly amount.
    • If the worker has actual workday method and has worked less than 22 days, the deduction will be identified with PEC 5203. The deduction amount per day (2 euros or 2.66 in the case of female workers) will be multiplied by the no. of days worked in each bracket. 
    • If the worker has completed 22 actual workdays or more, the deduction will be identified with PEC 5103 (monthly contribution). The amount will be divided by 22 and multiplied by the no. of days worked in each bracket, up to the monthly amount. Therefore, the deduction may not be calculated in some brackets as the monthly amount has been reached in previous brackets
    • The deduction will be applied to the shall apply to the employer payment due, i.e., the payment calculated after deducting the amount of reductions provided for this Special System.
    • As this is a fixed-amount deduction, it will only apply to settlements L00, L02 and L13 submitted within the deadline.
    • Calculation of deduction for workers with contribution group 2-11.
    1. To determine which workers the deduction is applicable to, check if the contribution basis is less than 1,800 euros (monthly method) or 81.82 euros (actual workday method). The rules of checking contribution bases are detailed in the previous section.
    2. Application of deductions 
    • First, calculate the employer payment due for common contingencies, i.e., resulting payment after deducting SEA reductions. 
    • The deduction amount, (which will apply to item 760 “deductions charged to SEPE”), will be the result of the difference between the employer payment due calculated as indicated in the previous point and the following amounts:
      • Monthly contribution method: 88.15 or 58.77 if a female worker.
        If the bracket does not correspond to the full month, the difference will be calculated between the payment due for the bracket and the result of dividing 88.15 or 58.77, as appropriate, by the no. of days contributed in the bracket.
      • Actual workday contribution method: 4.01 or 2.68 if a female worker by actual workday. 
  • As this deduction is a guarantee of the maximum amount to be paid, it will also apply to supplementary settlements submitted within the deadline L03, V03 and C03. In these settlements, the deduction will match the employer payment due as the maximum payment is understood to have already been paid in ordinary settlement L00 or L13.

As provided for in Article 7.2 of RD Law 8/2019, these deductions will be applied to all brackets in which the workers does not fall under  temporary disability, risk during pregnancy and risk during breastfeeding, as well as birth and child care occurring while active.

If the contribution method (monthly/actual workday) and/or the contribution group (group 1 or group 2-11) varies during the payment period, each bracket will be calculated as appropriate.


2 April 2019-Extinction of Voluntary Company Collaboration in Social Security management.

In light of the queries raised on processing payments due for  companies that cease collaboration in Social Security management for common contingencies, in accordance with the provisions of Temporary Provision Four of Royal Decree Law 28/2018, of 28 December, for the revaluation of public pensions and other urgent social, labour and employment measures, the following clarifications are considered necessary:

  • The voluntary collaboration deduction (item 552) will not be calculated in payment periods equal to or after April 2019 . Supplementary settlements in previous periods will include this item.
  • Temporary disability processes resulting from common illness or non-work-related injury under way on 1 April 2019 will be identified with brackets with special rule 29 (IT CC. COLLABORATORS. EXCLUDING 15 DAYS). 
  • Processes starting on 1 April 2019, including relapses from previous processes, will be identified in brackets with special rule 29 (IT CC. COLLABORATORS. EXCLUDING 15 DAYS) or 21 (IT COMMON CONTINGENCIES DELEGATED PAYMENT).
  • Supplementary settlements covering months during which the company was a collaborator and months when it no longer collaborated, must be split into two: one for the period of collaboration and another for the period of non-collaboration, provided Temporary Disability for common contingencies coverage is taken out with a Social Security mutual society partner.
    If protection is taken out with the managing body, this division is not necessary. 

21 March 2019- ISM. Red Authorised Persons for Self-employed Sea Workers included in groups two and three can transfer Temporary Disability reports via Red Online.

17 January 2018 - Clarification on the field "Daily Contribution Group Indicator. Monthly option."

The following information replaces the information published on the new “Daily contribution group indicator. Monthly option” field.

This new field is used to identify workers with a daily contribution group (groups 8 to 11) who have opted to contribute as if the contribution group had a monthly contribution base.

This field may be filled in online and in batches, and may be automated for worker registration (MA action) and contribution group changes (MG action), both features follow their respective general entry rules and deadlines.

For batches, the values are S or N, and a blank can also be used as it is an alphanumeric field.

Online, the initial field format has been replaced with a field that should only be checked when opting for monthly contribution in a daily contribution group.

Automation of registration

No special features.

Automation of data variations

General rule: When the field is varied with the Change of contribution group feature (batch MG action), it may involve simultaneous modification of the contribution group or not, and as a general rule the general regulations and deadlines established for that feature will be followed.

Exception to the general rule: for daily contribution groups (8 to 11), when maintaining the same contribution quotation group and you want to enter or remove content from the “Daily contribution group indicator. Monthly option” field, i.e. to change from monthly to daily contribution or vice versa, this automation must refer to the 1st day of the month.

In this case, if the variation is communicated within the first three days of the month, it may refer to the 1st of the previous month or the 1st of the same month; if the variation is communicated after the first three days of the month, the variation date must always be the 1st of the same month.

Special Agricultural System

For the Special Agricultural System (scheme 0163), this field will be optional and will only be available when the contribution method is MONTHLY BASE, i.e. it is not available for workers with contribution by ACTUAL WORKDAY.

Transitional period

On a transitional basis, this option must be communicated for both affiliation, with the current procedure, and payment settlements. This situation must be maintained until a future RED News Bulletin expressly indicates that it is no longer mandatory and this information can be communicated via payment settlements.

For workers already registered with contribution groups 8 to 11 who have opted for monthly contribution, the value “S” must be entered in the DAILY CONTRIBUTION GROUP INDICATOR. MONTHLY OPTION field via the “Change of contribution group” feature (or by checking this field if the variation is communicated online), so that data collected can be used at the time the data collected by the current payment settlement procedure is no longer used. This can be entered throughout the month of January with variation date 01.01.2018; in any case, the operation will be deemed completed within the deadline.
