I think you are looking for information about being autonomo, deedee. There are many posters who can give you up-to-date information about that as they work as self-employed...xabia for one.

Yes, autonomo. I've just done a search and quite honestly, there are so many threads relating to it that its probably easier if you have a go.

Basically, autonomo is a monthly payment of around 260€, altho I believe at the moment theres a reduced payment of 50€ a month for the first year. This then makes you eligible for healthcare in Spain. Your best bet to get autonomo would be to contact a local Gestor.

yes, as the others have said it's autónomo

& yes, if you're working as self-employed/autónomo & paying SS contributions then the entire family can be covered for healthcare

there is, as jojo said a new system for new registrations where the SS payment is 50€ a month for a limited period ( 6 months/a year - not sure exactly) then over a period of time it goes up to full contributions are at least 260€ a month, depending on your age & what you do.

these SS payments are the same every month regardless of how much you earn, or how many hours you work

so even if i work only part time the payment would still be 260 euros per month ? (after the initial 50 euro for the first year)

I thing it's 50 for 6 months, then 75 for six months then it goes back up to full whack.

..... and unfortunately its not based on your income either. You could earn nothing for the duration and still have to pay the said amount!!!!! Altho if you're lucky it works the other way - if you earn 10,00000€ a week, you still only have to pay the same amount

For Social Security payments yes.

Just don't forget you may be liable to income tax on your earnings subject to allowances and how much you earn. The €260 a month payment is for Social Security only and is paid regardless of how much you earn.

You will need to prove an income as well to become a resident and therefore entitled to become an autonomo, which may be difficult unless you have independent means??? Its a bit of a catch 22 sometimes lol!!!

actually - you can become autónomo with the NIE & then register as resident later - within the 3 months of course

@ deedee76 - you can't just regsiter & pay the SS payments - you have to have a proper business, & submit proper accounts every quarter


I'm changing the title of this thread now to reflect its content - autónomo/self-employment
