Dear P&A clients, We write you this informative letter in regard to the extraordinary measures regarding Covid-19 the Spanish state has taken for autonomos.
In some cases you can request financial aid for the month of March and ongoing. This government payment will be 70% of your TGSS base, if you pay the minimum contribution, this will be approximately 670 euro (70% of 900 euro). If your request for the financial aid is accepted, the autonomo payment of March (and maybe April as well) will be returned to your account. The dead-line to file for this aid is the 14th of April, so you need to act fast.
/OR you had 75% or more income loss in March in comparison to your average income between September 2019 and February 2020.

In case that your activity has not been suspended automatically with the state of emergency, you need to fill in the 75% option and prove that you had AT LEAST 75% less income in the month of March in comparison to the average of the months between September 2019 and February 2020.

Please check in the last 2 pages of the Real Decreto 463/2020, de 14 de marzo, attached, if you have an activity that was automatically suspended. Then you do not need to prove the 75% decrease of income.
