    • Whilst the "flat rate” benefit is applied, contributions must be paid for cessation of activity and for vocational training.
      Category: > Subject:

      No. Self-employed workers subject to the "flat rate" benefit may not pay contributions for cessation of activity or for vocational training until the maximum period for benefiting from these reductions has expired.
      From the first day of the month following the end of the month, contributions must be paid for all protected benefits.

      Both the exclusion of contributions for the cessation of activity and vocational training, and the contribution for these contingencies once the maximum "flat rate" period has ended, will be carried out ex officio by the General Treasury of the Social Security.
