From July 2022 and thanks to Royal Decree 11/2022 to alleviate the economic effects of the crisis, self-employed workers registered in the Special Regime for Self-Employed Workers (Régimen Especial de Trabajadores Autónomos or RETA) of Social Security will be able to request a bonus of 200 euros that will serve as a relief and help for self-employed workers who are having financial problems.

In addition, the decree-law details several measures that include aids, such as the reduction from 10% to 5% in VAT on the electricity bill and the discount of 20 cents per litre of gasoline, for example. This package of measures is worth 9,000 million euros and its validity will be extended until the end of the year. The self-employed will be able to enjoy these benefits until December 31, 2022. 

How do you apply and until what date can you apply? Find out here the requirements to access this bonus for self-employed according to the Government of Spain.

Request the bonus for self-employed

This 200 euro bonus for self-employed can be requested from July 2022, you just have to fill out and send the corresponding form which will be available at the Electronic Headquarters of the Tax Agency. To submit the application you must have a Cl@ve or electronic Certificate (including DNI-e).

The deadline to request this bonus for self-employed is until September 30, 2022.

Requirements to collect the benefit

The fundamental thing that the self-employed person must show is that they have a lack of annual income and that they have legal, continuous and effective residence in Spain during the immediately preceding year. 

First of all, only those self-employed workers who can demonstrate that last year they received an income of less than 14,000 euros per year will be eligible for the 200-euro bonus for self-employed. Also, the Tax Agency will require proof of assets of less than 43,196.40 euros per year

The income and assets will be determined considering the same of all the people who reside with the beneficiary in the same address as of January 1, 2022, and are united with each other. 

For example, spouse or partner with at least 2 years in advancerelatives up to the 3rd degree including related ones (children, siblings, grandparents, uncles, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, etc.) or those who live with any of the above by virtue of guardianship for adoption or permanent foster care purposes.

Likewise, the legal document emphasizes who can and cannot collect the aid, those who can are:

  • Those who are self-employed and are registered in the Social Security regime that belongs to them or in the mutual insurance company that corresponds to them.
  • Those who are in a legal situation of unemployment and are registered with the State Public Employment Service (Servicio Público de Empleo Estatal or SEPE). They may or may not be beneficiaries of unemployment benefits.

Those who CANNOT access this 200 euro bonus for self-employed are those who collect the Minimum Living Income (IMV). If the self-employed person receives this non-contributory benefit from Social Security, he will not be able to collect this bonus of 200 euros. You must choose whether to collect the IMV or the anti-crisis bonus for self-employed.

Those who are included in the special Social Security regimes in the State Passive Classes Regime are also not included in the aid.


The good news is there is no need to provide any. However, Social Security and other public authorities will send the applicant’s information to the Tax Agency to verify compliance with the necessary requirements to request the 200 euro bonus for self-employed.

However, the NIF of the applicant and of the persons living in the same household and a bank account in the name of the applicant into which the payment of the bonus is to be made must be provided. It is NOT mandatory to provide the NIF to minors under 14 years of age who do not have it.

These tax measures are expected to save 3,600 million Euros for families, companies and the self-employed.
