Social Security contribution rates in Spain for Autónomos

Being self-employed in Spain entails the responsibility of paying your own Social Security contributions.

In 2023, a new contribution system has been implemented that affects the way the self-employed contribution is calculated.

Its calculation is based on the actual income obtained by the self-employed, known as the “real income contribution system” (or “régimen de cotización por ingresos reales” in Spanish)

This system seeks to ensure that the self-employed pay a contribution in accordance with their income, unlike the previous system, in which some had to pay a very high contribution in relation to their actual income.

The new contribution system will be phased in over 3 years:

  • In 2023, the self-employed will be able to choose between the new system and the current system.
  • In 2024, the new system will become the default system, and those autónomos who want to remain in the current system will have to opt for it.
  • In 2025, the current system will disappear completely.
What affects the calculation of the self-employed Social Security rates in 2023?

Income obtained: The rates will be calculated according to the actual income of the self-employed. The higher the income, the higher the fee to be paid.

Professional activity: Depending on the activity carried out, there may be variations in the fee. Some sectors may have specific discounts.

Type of contribution: There are different types of contributions, such as contributions for common contingencies, professional contingencies, and termination of activity. Each one has a specific percentage.

Contribution base: The basis for the calculation of contributions will be the net annual result obtained by the self-employed.

That is to say, the income received minus deductible expenses will be taken into account.

The "tarifa plana" for self-employed in Spain:

The tarifa plana (flat rate) for autónomos is a benefit for new self-employed workers that is applied during the first months of activity. It consists of a reduced fee, regardless of income.

In 2023, the tarifa plana was modified and a fee of €60 per month is established for the first 12 months for those self-employed who have not been registered as self-employed in the previous two years.

In conclusion, in order to calculate your self-employed Social Security rates accurately, it is advisable to determine your exact contribution bracket and make sure you comply with your obligations as an autónomo in order to have access to the benefits provided by Social Security in Spain.
