Standalone Quotas

Since January 28, 2018, a new telematic service has been operational in the electronic center of the Social Security, which allows people who make contributions to the special scheme for the self-employed (RETA) to consult the fee that will be debited from their bank account every month on the last working day of month.

The service can be accessed via Check receipts issued for the special scheme for self-employed (RETA), according to the route citizen/quote or simply by clicking this link

Beginning on the 26th of each month

Through this new service, from the 26th of each month, self-employed people will be able to see the fee they have to pay that month, which will be charged to their bank account on the last business day of the month, and the fee, if any, corresponding to any additional statements.

In addition, since July 2018, the date on which the debt issuance procedure was carried out, they can at any time verify the installments issued by the General Treasury of Social Security (TGSS) for their debit on the relevant bank account in the company, in accordance with the requirements of the SEPA -Regulations up to the month before the query.

It should be noted, however, that this information on quotas issued does not certify that those quotas were actually paid by the employee and therefore is not used to prove that they are up to date with their payments and obligations to Social Security.

Likewise, the information obtained through this new service may under no circumstances be used as a document for the payment of installments, a payment that can only be made by direct debit.

In principle, this new service is only available to workers who have been accepted into RETA, although in the future they hope to extend it to self-employed workers under the Special Sea Regime, to rural workers employed by others during periods of inactivity, to trapped people to extend in the special scheme for domestic workers and subscribers to special agreements.

The gibberish of quotas the self-employed

From the same month of February, for the self-employed who contribute to the minimum basis, the amount of the social security contribution for the month of January increases to 288.97 euros. This is 2% more than the fee paid just three months ago when the fee increase was foreseen in the Royal Decree-Law 28/2018 of December 28thfor the year 2020.

However, after numerous criticisms from the self-employed, the Ministry of Social Security had no choice but to make improvements and agree with the self-employed associations to halt the increase by next May. As a result, the social security contribution for the self-employed fell again in February and remained at just over 286 euros compared to the previous year.

As soon as we start to recover from the economic crisis caused by the pandemic, the self-employed will have to gradually pay back the debt they have incurred with social security. This means that a few more euros must be added to the updated quota until the frozen increases are settled.

Likewise, those self-employed who have accepted the moratorium on paying fees with the pandemic must expect to have those amounts repaid.

So, given the gibberish that’s going on, welcome to the new Social Security service to find out what you’ll have to pay each month.
