Census of Active Bullfighting Professionals
Each year, within the first fifteen days of the month of January, bullfighting professionals must file, at the Provincial Office of the Treasury General of the Social Security or an Administration thereof, a statement of continuance in professional activity during the bullfighting season corresponding to said year, in order to be included within the Census of Active Bullfighting Professionals.
Inclusion within the Census of Active Workers and continuance therein shall exempt the companies from the obligation to give notice of the bullfighting professionals' affiliation and termination of affiliation for each spectacle in which they participate. Consequently, this collective is not subject to successive affiliations and terminations of affiliation, nor, as a result, the obligation to file, for this purpose, form TA-2/S (successive affiliations and terminations of affiliation form). Nevertheless, they must notify of the changes in their identification data (address, etc.) for purposes of updating the Census of Active Workers.
The continuance of professional activity shall be recognised when the bullfighting professional can provide proof, with any type of evidence and, particularly, by submitting certificates of performances, of having participated in at least eight bullfighting spectacles during the year preceding the one to which the statement of continuance refers.
Proof of continuance and the corresponding inclusion within the Census of Active Workers shall lead to the worker being considered in active contributor status, for all purposes, during the calendar year.
In the case of bullfighting professionals who are initiating their professional activity, or those who have not participated in eight spectacles during the preceding year, inclusion within the Census shall become effective from the date of their first performance.
When the statement of continuance is filed after 15th January of each year, inclusion within the Census of Active Workers shall only become effective from the same day in which the first performance by the bullfighting professional takes place.
Failure to file the statement of continuance prior to 15th January of each year shall lead to the bullfighting professional's automatic termination of affiliation, effective 1st January of said year.
