Well at least it is a start on trying to make forward moves.
very true - & hopefully it will encourage 'black' workers to register now as well - good for them & good for the economy


it might have a knock-on effect on property prices too - anything a bit under the 500,000€ mark might have more chance of selling if the price went up a bit

property agent friends tell me that most contacts, viewings & purchases in my town are by Russians - & the town has been heavily marketing itself as a holiday destination to Russia the past couple of years

Superb! I read about this yesterday but in my article it made no mention of age and I assumed it was only for under-30s, as rumoured earlier this year. We have been thinking about the merits of starting a small business but the autónomo payments would have made it far too expensive to start with. This is the sort of thing that will help revitalise the country - a good start!

As far as I can tell, it is for the first 6 months, after that it increases to €180 a month and then €300 after a further 18 months. Which is when most of the new contributors will stop. That was in one article I read, others have different interpretations but along the same lines...

Once they see the downturn in people paying after the introductory period they'll hopefully look to make another change, perhaps on a permanent basis.

You never know!!! But this is Spain and it might take a while for them to get through that red tape thing they have here...
