Todo irá bien

Summary of the economic, social, sanitary, labor and regarding leisure measures approved in the extraordinary Council of Ministers of march 12th to fight the coronavirus

The economic measures included in today’s Royal Decree Law are a first package of urgent measures, which will take effect immediately. But these will not be the last measures.

This afternoon I will have a videoconference, as you know, with the Social Agents, specifically with the leaders of the main unions and employers, to explain the measures adopted and discuss with them other possible necessary actions, which would be approved in the following days, such as benefits for working families for the care of children due to the closure of the educational centres to which I have previously referred (or others such as internal adjustment measures for staff to protect employment or temporary postponements of social contributions for PYMES).

Naturally, the economic response to this emergency would be facilitated if we could already count on new General State Budgets, which are increasingly urgent. Some General Budgets that will have to be no longer social, because they will have to alleviate the ravages of an emergency that is sanitary but is also economic. If new budgets were necessary a month ago, the crisis we are going through makes them urgent.

IN THE TAX FIELD

  • Deferrals and instalments of your tax debts with the Administration for a period of six months, without interest. In other words, we are going to grant deferrals of their tax debts with the Administration for 6 months without interest
  • Deferral of repayment of loans from the Ministry of Tourism, Industry and Commerce to industrial companies

IN THE SCHOOL FIELD

Cancellation of educational activities (kindergartens, schools and universities) and encouraging distant and online training.

IN THE WORK FIELD THE FOLLOWING IS RECOMMENDED

  • Promotion on behalf of the companies to carry work out by teleworking.
  • Preparation and updating, when appropriate, of business continuity plans of the company where the updates to be carried out due to the situation originated by the coronavirus.
  • Promotion of flexibility of hours and staggered shifts
  • Teleconference meetings are better alternatives to conventional meetings.

IN THE TRANSPORT FIELD

  • Avoid trips which are not essential.

IN THE SANITARY FIELD

  • All people who start having respiratory symptoms and / or fever should remain at home, avoiding going to their workplace and health centres as long as their clinical condition allows it.
  • All elderly people or those who suffer from chronic or multipathological diseases or with states of congenital or acquired immunosuppression, should avoid leaving their home or residence except in cases of strict need and, in any case, should avoid crowded places where it is not possible maintain an interpersonal safety distance of at least one meter.
  • Promote home care for the elderly.
  • Restriction of access to the patient’s companions in hospital emergencies and social and health centres. It is recommended to reduce visits to elderly people who are in social and health centres.

IN THE LEISURE FIELD

  • All cultural events and activities involving more than 1.000 assistants in closed spaces will be cancelled.
  • All cultural events and activities involving less than 1,000 assistants must reduce their capacity to 1/3 to ensure a distance of at least 1 meter between assistant.
  • All national and international sports events, professional and non-professional, will be held behind closed doors or cancelled.
  • Suspend Imserso travel for one month, as they are the most vulnerable group to this disease, our elderlies, and we have established that all major sporting events, professional and non-professional, in national or international competitions, are held behind closed doors in all our country.

IN THE WORK FIELD

  • Expanding the Social Security bonuses in discontinued fixed contracts, so that these bonuses now cover the months of February to June 2020.
  • Infected people – or in preventive isolation – are considered to be temporarily disabled due to professional contingencies. This implies that, from the day following the sick leave, these people receive 75% of the regulatory base charged to the Public Administration.
  • Recommend teleworking to avoid displacement. Or, in the case, the organization of staggered shifts in companies to reduce concentrations of people and the consequent risk of infection.

Given the economic-labour-work measures that the President of the Government has communicated after today’s Extraordinary Council of Ministers, it seems that the most effective measure that the company will have to do will be the processing of the CRISIS file consisting in the suspension of employment contracts of its workers temporarily. This file is better known as ERTE- Temporary Business Regulation File.

The ERTE allows various actions, such as:

  • Suspension of employment contracts temporarily. They go on to collect unemployment benefit (PARO)
  • Reduction of the working day and jointly share with the SOIB the payment of the wages with the payment of the employment subsidy (PARO).
  • Negotiate new salary conditions (salary reduction without touching the working day).
  • Dismissal of Workers for economic reasons.

Could Brexit be stopped?

What a great question! For now, the answer is no.
Last Tuesday, a Scottish court rejected the attempt to bring to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) the legal attempt that could clarify whether Britain could finally stop the Brexit process unilaterally.

This singular case was presented by a group of anti-Brexit legislators in order to verify if the proposal of Great Britain to leave the European Union could be reversed. That could be possible if London withdrew its notification of Article 50, for which the Brexit was formally initiated.

The judge J. Raymond Doherty of Scotland’s top civil court declined to refer the matter to the ECJ: “I am not satisfied that the application has a real prospect of success. Permission to proceed is refused,” he said.

Despite it, a lawyer from the group that filed the case said they would appeal the decision.

This proposal is important in order to know if theoretically, Britain has the opportunity to unilaterally withdraw its Article 50 notification, regardless of whether the other EU member states would authorize it to do so.

So far there are no plans to stop the Brexit, it is more, Theresa May is to chair today, the first of two key Brexit meetings with her senior ministers as the government faces more calls to clarify the UK’s position and next Thursday will focus on North Ireland, immigration and on trade.

For now, we must wait for the communications of the senior ministers and Theresa May to know what will happen with Brexit

The EU wants to define the safety limits on Brexit

We are getting closer to the final moment on Brexit and now it’s up to Europe to define the participation it will have in this matter.
The General Affairs Council, which is made up of Ministers or Secretaries of European Affairs belonging to the member countries of the EU, has marked the lines that will shape the negotiating mandate of Michel Barnier in order to develop the Brexit negotiations. Among these lines, there are no surprises but more details about what the European Union wants and what the European Union will allow in the coming months.
As already reported, EU member states will be willing to allow the UK to negotiate trade agreements with other countries during the 21-month transition period that will be set after the EU exit, ie 21 months from March 29, 2019.
For this to happen, an express permission of the EU will be required.
Now, the problems are concentrated in London, which since the summit of heads of State and Government last December, has barely managed to define what it wants, how it wants it and how it hopes to achieve it before and after the definitive break with the European Union. Although time is running very fast, it can not be said that there will be concrete talks about what is known as the second stage.
At the last summit, they began to discuss issues about the future of business affairs, after confirming that the UK had made sufficient progress on the most worrisome issues for Brussels, such as the rights of citizens after departure. There has also been progressing on the issues that refer to the exit invoice and the jurisdiction of the courts in the future when there would be open cases. We will have to wait until the summit of leaders in March to be able to know what progress we can find.
At the moment, we know that, there will be a transition of 21 months from the exit of the EU and that the UK will continue to be part of the market and will be subject to European standards until December 31, 2020, which means a positive response from Europe before this request from the United Kingdom.
However, the transition period has a cost and this is the acceptance of the new European laws without intervention in the legislative process. This condition can be understood to be mandatory since it is almost impossible for March 30, 2019, to be fully organized for the total separation with the EU.
Europe is not happy either after David Davis’s announcement about continuing the negotiations until the end of the year. However, they are trying to accelerate the process so that he can have something solid to present to the European Parliament before October.

At the moment we have to wait for news about the destination that will take the UK exit from the European Union

Why i need a NIE number to buy a property in Spain?

Spain is a beautiful place to live, and if you planning to move here, you better have to know “what’s an NIE?”.

In this article, we want to explain to you why you need an NIE and how to get one, either in and outside of Spain. There you can find the information about to get an NIE for buying a property.

First of all, we will start to tell you “What is an NIE?”

N.I.E. is an abbreviation for Número de Identidad de Extranjero, that means “Identification Number for Foreigners”. The NIE will be you all-purpose identification, including your tax number in Spain. You will need it for all the process you will initiate in Spain. If you want to buy a property, you will need an NIE number due to the state will want you to pay your taxes. The Income-tax (“La Renta”) and the annual wealth tax (“Impuesto sobre el Patrimonio”) both are declared by resident and non-resident property owners.

One of the most important things about the NIE number is that it is indefinitely valid and it wouldn’t expire before 3 months. However, maybe you could find a notary that refuse to accept a certificate that is older than 3 months, which could cause problems for property buyers trying to sign deeds more than 3 months after obtaining their NIE certificate. If you want to buy, it would be safe to sort out your NIE number when you find a property you want to buy and cand complete within 3 months.

Who needs a NIE?

There are three types of persons who need a NIE in Spain:

  • Any foreigner who becomes resident for tax purposes in Spain.
  • Any non-resident foreigner who buys a property in Spain.
  • Anyone who wants to work in Spain.

When do you need to have a NIE?

If you want to buy a property in Spain, you will need to have a NIE number by the time you sign the deeds of purchase before the notary (“la escritura“). To have your NIE on time, you need to applying for it a least 1 month before to sing “la escritura”. If you are applying via a consulate abroad you need to apply at least 2 months before. It is known that you’ll be able to get a NIE number in person in Spain in a couple of days, but sometimes it could take weeks, so the best thing you can do is allow yourself plenty of time.

You also can apply for your NIE number authorising a third party to obtain it on your behalf. To do this you need to grant them a “poder”, or power of attorney signed before the notary, expressly granting permission to request a NIE number on your behalf. You also would let them have your passport, or send them a notarized copy of it in a “copia legitimada”.

If you want to get your NIE number, you could put in contact with us. We will do all the work for you to get your NIE number.
