The different types of "flat rate" are expressly repealed.
However, for self-employed workers who are registered from January 2023 onwards, if this is their first registration with the social security scheme for self-employed workers (RETA) or if they have not been registered with the system in the two years prior to the new registration, a new reduced flat-rate contribution is established in the General State Budget Law (LPGE) (currently €80), with an initial duration of 12 months, extendible to 24 months if they do not earn more than the minimum wage after the initial period.
The financial benefits to which self-employed workers who benefit from this reduced contribution may be entitled shall be determined in accordance with the minimum basis of the lowest tranche of the general table.
These contributions shall not be subject to adjustment.
Although the law has expressly repealed the so-called FLAT RATE in its different modalities, the beneficiaries of these benefits before 1 January 2023 may continue to enjoy them in their contributions until their maximum duration runs out.
