Royal Decree 463/2020, of 14 March, declaring a state of alarm, established the suspension of the calculation of administrative deadlines as of 15 March. Now Royal Decree 537/2020, of 22 May, extending the state of alarm states that, with effect from 1 June 2020, the calculation of these deadlines shall resumed, or shall be restarted, if so provided for in a legal regulation approved during the state of alarm and its extensions (art. 9). This means that administrative deadlines suspended on 15 March will continue to count from 1 June, or will be reinitiated if so provided in a legal regulation approved during this period.
In addition, with effect from 4 June 2020, the suspension of deadlines for the limitation and expiry of administrative rights and actions will be lifted. (art.10)
The terms and deadlines for collection management procedures will resume on 1 June, in the administrative scope and, from 4 June, also in the procedural scope with relevance in insolvency procedures involving the Social Security General Treasury.
The issue of administrative documents will therefore resume:
All deadlines relating to notifications of administrative documents, both telematic and postal, are also resumed or initiated.
The calculation of deadlines for presenting allegations, providing documentation or filing administrative and legal appeals (the latter from the 4th) are also resumed or initiated.
No request is necessary since the resumption of deadlines is automatically applied according to Royal Decree 537/2020 of 22 March.

In the case of intermittent permanent workers whose contracts have been suspended as a consequence of the impact of COVID-19, but who would otherwise have been working during this period, their unemployment benefits will be reinstated for up to 90 days when they are once again unemployed.
The current period of extraordinary measures does not imply a reduction in the duration of the right to the corresponding benefits.

As provided for in final provision ten of Royal Decree-Law 8/2020, of 17 March, this measure shall remain in force until one month after the end of the declaration of the state of alarm, unless the Government decides to extend it by royal decree-law, therefore, until one month after the end of the state of alarm, the ISM shall, on its own initiative, extend all subsidies that may be extended, provided that the previous six-monthly right has expired after 31 January.

A new extraordinary benefit is established for people who work seasonally and for those who carry out fixed and periodic work that is repeated on certain dates, the duration of which will be until 31 January 2021. Those eligible for this new benefit will be:
For workers affected by ERTE derived from COVID 19, the days that they receive the contributory benefit from 1 October 2020 until 31 January 2021 will be subtracted from the duration of the benefits that are subsequently recognised whose starting date is prior to 1 October 2026.
However, no such consumption will be made for those who receive a new benefit before 1 January 2022 due to the termination of a fixed-term contract or due to dismissal for economic, technical, organisational or production reasons, or for any other reason if the dismissal is unfair.
The amount of the benefit will be 70% of the regulatory base, without prejudice to the maximum and minimum amounts of unemployment benefits, and regardless of whether more than 180 days of benefit have been received.
As of 30th September 2020, the amount of benefits granted to persons affected by ERTE shall not be reduced by the proportionate part of the hours worked in other jobs held on the date on which they were affected by the ERTE.
As a general rule, in cases of suspensions of contracts or reductions to working days, companies are obliged to pay their contributions.
Royal Decrees-Law 8/2020, of 17 March, 18/2020, 12 May, and 24/2020, 26 June, exceptionally provide that in ERTEs authorised based on temporary force majeure linked to COVID-19, as well in employment adjustment plans for economic, technical, organisational or production causes (ETOPs), the company shall be exempt from paying the business contribution, including contribution for unemployment, Wage Guarantee Fund and Vocational Training, with the percentages and terms provided for in the above mentioned regulation.
In the case that working hours are reduced, companies are obliged to pay their own and the employee's contributions for the part of the working day in which the activity is carried out, and they are exempt from paying the contributions for the part of the working day not carried out.
Exemption rates will vary depending on whether the company, as of 29 February 2020, had 50 or less, or more, employees registered in the Social Security.
For the duration of the period of suspension of contracts or reduction of working hours.
Generally no: However, if during the period in which the contract is suspended, the worker does not receive the corresponding unemployment benefit, they must de-register from Social Security. Once the suspension has ended, they must re-register for Social Security.
If, during the period in which the contract is suspended, the worker does not receive the corresponding unemployment benefit, they must de-register from Social Security. Once the suspension has ended, they must re-register for Social Security.
If, during the period in which their working day is reduced, the worker does not receive the unemployment benefit corresponding to these shorter days, they must only remain registered for the Social Security corresponding to the hours they have worked.Royal Decree-Law 8/2020 determines that working people affected by these Temporary Employment Regulations (ERTEs) are entitled to the contributory unemployment benefit even if they do not have the necessary minimum occupation period stated. Furthermore, the duration of this benefit is not calculated for the purpose of using the maximum periods for these benefits.
It should be noted that during the period of validity of the extraordinary public health measures taken by the authorities to combat the effects of the spread of COVID-19, applications for the unemployment benefit made outside the legally established time limits shall not incur a reduction in the duration of entitlement to the corresponding benefit.

A receipt will be generated for the exonerated party and another receipt for the non-exonerated party.
In the case of employment contract suspensions reported using a ‘V’ in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, the General Treasury of Social Security will automatically apply the contribution exemption depending on the number of workers registered on 29 February 2020.
In the case of reductions in working hours reported using a ‘W’ or ‘X’ in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, the contribution for the period of activity will be made in accordance with the general rules applicable to part-time contracts, and therefore the number of hours of work carried out in the period of reduction of the working day must be communicated within the scope of the contribution. With regards to the contribution for the period of inactivity due to the reduction in working hours, the General Treasury of Social Security will automatically apply the exemption from contributions according to the number of workers registered on 29 February 2020.
In the case of total suspension of the employment contract due to COVID-19 duly reported with the relevant values in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, the Social Security General Treasury will automatically apply the contribution exemption depending on the number of workers registered in the Social Security on 29 February 2020.
In the case of reductions in working hours or partial suspensions of employment contracts linked to COVID-19 reported with the relevant values in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, the contribution for the period of activity will be made in accordance with the general rules applicable to part-time contracts, and therefore the number of hours of work carried out in the period of reduction of the working day must be communicated within the scope of the contribution.

Requirements for applying exemptions for ERTE due to force majeure or regulated employment adjustment plans for economic, financial, organisational or production causes -ETOP-, the latter in RDL 24/2020, linked to COVID-19 vary depending on the circumstances of the company and each of the workers, as well as the period in which it intends to apply contribution exemption.
Companies waiving the workforce adjustment plan before the labour authority must notify this express waiver to the Social Security General Treasury through the RED System - Cause for Unusual Contribution 63.
Notifying the express waiver means that termination of the employment contract suspension or reduced working hours need not be reported for each of the workers affected by the workforce adjustment plan, leaving the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field blank as this action will automatically be taken by the system.
In accordance with Article 5.2, trading companies or other legal entities that opt for workforce adjustment plans related to COVID 19 and use the public resources allocated to them, may not distribute dividends for the fiscal year in which these workforce adjustment plans apply, except if they have paid the amount corresponding to the exemption applied to social security contributions in advance and have waived it.

In order for the rebate established for this group to apply, the company is required to submit the sworn statement. This sworn statement consists of noting value 017-TOURISM-COMMERC-HOSPITALITY.C/INTERMIT.PERM.TOURISMCATE.C.INTER.P- in the CAUSE FOR UNUSUAL CONTRIBUTION field, for each CCC and accrual month affected.The sworn statements referred to in this article must be submitted using the Social Security Electronic data transfer system (RED System), regulated in Order ESS/484/2013, of 26 March.
Additionally, for the workers to whom it is applicable, value 420 in the ADDITIONAL SITUATIONS field must be filled in with the following specifications:
Companies must note value 017 - TOURISM-COMMERC- HOSPITALITY C/INTER. PERM., using the RED SYSTEM, for CCCs with value 79xx in the ECONOMY ACTIVITY (CNAE) field.

Exceptionally, companies with CCCs belonging to the Autonomous Region of the Balearic Islands may note in the records value 017 in the CAUSE FOR UNUSUAL CONTRIBUTION field for CCCs with CNAE values 79xx, 46xx, 47xx, 55xx and 56xx.
No, this deduction will be calculated automatically by the system once the additional 420 situation has been reported. In the event that the payment has already been confirmed, you must mechanize the additional situation and request the correction of the credit in order for the deduction to be applied to that payment.
If the action indicated in the previous paragraph could not be performed at the time the value 420 was available to enter, the corresponding payment return can be requested.
The entry, by the authorised REDs, of records with a value of 420 constitutes a sworn statement that each and every one of the requirements for access to that benefit is fulfilled and that none of the exclusions that would determine non-access to it are present.
Records with a value of 420 should only be entered when each and every one of the conditions and requirements set out in the aforementioned Article 13 of Royal Decree-Law 7/2020 or additional provision four of Royal Decree-Law 25/2020, as well as in the other applicable regulations for access to and maintenance of payment deductions, and when any of the exclusions applicable to the benefit in question do not apply.
No, this is a different and supplementary benefit, as contained in Royal Decree-Law 8/2020, regarding extraordinary urgent measures to combat the economic and social impact of COVID-19 (ARTICLE 17). The amounts, duration and access requirements have been modified, among other elements, with the aim of assisting a greater number of beneficiaries.The validity is limited to one month following the entry into force of Royal Decree 463/2020, which declared the state of emergency to manage the crisis caused by COVID-19. If the state of emergency is extended beyond the initial month, the benefit will end on the last day of the month in which the state of emergency is lifted.

Or, in other cases, when the turnover in the month prior to that for which the service is requested is reduced by at least 75% in relation to the average turnover for the previous six-month period.
Yes, those who employ workers and have had to close due to the state of emergency or have suffered a reduction in their turnover of at least 75% can present an ERTE for their workers and request this supplementary benefit for themselves.
During the period of receipt of the extraordinary benefit for cessation of activity, self-employed workers who suspend their activity must not process the cancellation of their Social Security registration and continue to register their economic activity with the Treasury.
If the right to the benefit is due to a 75% reduction in invoicing in the month prior to the month in which the benefit is requested in relation to that of the previous six-month period, they must in any case remain registered with the corresponding Social Security system, so that the exceptional regulations of RDL 8/2020 can be applied to them.
During the period of receipt of the extraordinary benefit for cessation of activity, self-employed workers who suspend their activity must not process the cancellation of their social security registration, and must therefore continue to be registered in the self-employed system.
No. Once the duration of the benefit has elapsed, the benefits in the contribution that were enjoyed prior to the concession of this benefit will again be applicable, where appropriate.
No. This period is understood as being contributed for according to Article 17 of RDL 8/2020.
No, this time will not reduce the periods for benefits for cessation of activity to which the beneficiary may be entitled in the future.
Paid contributions which overlap with any of the days during the period in which you are entitled to the supplementary benefit have been refunded by the Treasury. Resolution of the recognition of the right to the refund has been notified in the SEDESS and the amount has been paid to the same bank account where the charge was made.If the refund has not been processed, you can request it through the relevant SEDESS service.
As above, these workers will be entitled to the benefit if they can demonstrate a fall in turnover of at least 75%, as long as there is no discrepancy between the benefit and the activity.
The amount shall be determined by applying 70% to the base rate, which is calculated in the same manner as for the ordinary benefit for the cessation of activity: in other words, the average of the base rates contributed during the continuous 12-month period immediately preceding the application.
As a 12-month contribution period is not required for access to the benefit, when this period is not demonstrated, the amount of the benefit shall always be equivalent to 70% of the minimum contribution basis of the program for self-employed workers, which shall also apply to maritime workers (70% of €944.35=€661.04).
It will last for one month and will be extended until the last day of the month in which the state of alarm ends in the event that this situation is extended beyond the established month.
In addition, the time for which they are paid shall be deemed to be paid and shall not reduce the periods of severance pay to which they may be entitled in the future.
Eligible workers shall have the right to receive the benefit with effect from 14 March 2020, the date on which RD 463/2020 declaring the State of Emergency entered into force.
Those whose activity is among those suspended by RD 463/2020:
In addition to this documentation, when the reason for the service is a reduction in turnover, you must provide proof of this reduction. The form on the website will indicate the documentation to be submitted in each case.

No, the compatibility regime established by that Royal Decree-Law does not affect this extraordinary benefit for termination of activity.
This benefit shall be compatible with any other social security benefit that the beneficiary might be receiving and is compatible with the performance of the activity he or she was conducting. With regard to self-employed workers included in the Special Scheme for Sea Workers, the cessation of activity allowance shall be incompatible with the collection of benefits for the standstill of the fleet.

23. What are the measures approved for the protection of self-employed workers by the RD-law 2/2022, of 22 February, adopting urgent measures for the protection of self-employed workers, for the transition towards the structural mechanisms for the defence of employment, and for the economic and social recovery of the island of La Palma, and extending certain measures to deal with situations of social and economic vulnerability?

Prórroga de las medidas extraordinarias de Seguridad Social para los trabajadores autónomos afectados por la erupción volcánica registrada en la zona de Cumbre Vieja en La Palma
It is a temporary extraordinary subsidy which individuals included in the Special System for Domestic Employees of the General Social Security Scheme can benefit due to lack of or reduced activity caused by the declaration of state of alarm. The Resolution of 30 April 2020, published in the BOE on Monday, 4 May, develops the procedure for processing applications.
Domestic employees are entitled to the extraordinary subsidy for lack of activity and when they are registered in the Special System for Domestic Employees of the Social Security General Scheme before the state of alarm was declared, 14 March, and when they are in one of the following situations:
If no services are provided, the domestic worker’s registration must be cancelled. Reduced working hours must also be notified to the Social Security General Treasury.
These notifications can be sent using the Deregistration in the Special System for Domestic Workers and Modifications/Corrections of workers’ data in the Special System for Domestic Employees services of the Social Security Electronic Office.
Temporarily, during the current situation caused by COVID-19, if no digital certificate or Cl@ve is available, these procedures can be carried out by accessing the Filing of other documents, applications and notifications (Social Security General Treasury) service without a certificate.
The procedure for processing subsidy applications does not establish the cancellation of registration in the Special System for Domestic Employees as a requirement to access the subsidy.
While the domestic employee is registered, they person responsible for payment must continue to pay contributions. The Social Security General Treasury will calculate payment and issue the relevant debit notice, regardless of whether the employee receives the extraordinary subsidy or not.
Also in the case of reduced working hours, the obligation to pay remains in force under the terms indicated.
Royal Decree-Law 11/2020 does not provide for exemption from the relevant payments to the Special System for Domestic Employees in general, nor while receiving the extraordinary subsidy.
In order to receive the subsidy and accredit the situation, the domestic employee will need an affidavit signed by the employer or employers regarding the total or partial reduction of services.
Termination of the employment contract can be accredited by a letter of dismissal, notification of termination from the employer or documentation accrediting cancellation in the Special System for Domestic Employees of the Social Security General Scheme.
Documentation available on the SEPE website:
The monthly amount of the extraordinary subsidy for lack of activity depends on the remuneration received by the employee and the reduction of activity.
It will be 70% of the base rate for the activity no longer carried out and may not exceed the Minimum Professional Wage, excluding the proportional share of overtime.
In the case of partial loss of activity, the amount will be received in direct proportion to the reduction in the employee’s working hours.
If several jobs were carried out in this special system, the base rate will be calculated for each job no longer carried out. In this case, the total amount of the subsidy will be the sum of the amounts obtained by applying 70% to the different base rates of each job; this total amount is also limited to the Minimum Professional Wage.
