What are the most common tax errors of the self-employed?

If you are self-employed, you will agree that bureaucracy is one of the main problems that you find yourself in your day to day; in fact, it can become a serious impediment in the exercise of your activity. And it is that according to the first Report on the Declaration of Income and Spanish Fiscal Policy, prepared by TaxScouts, 92% of self-employed workers believe that the public administration should simplify the amount of bureaucratic procedures and thus facilitate and encourage entrepreneurship.

The problems derived from a confused and not very agile bureaucracy are many, but among them is included the possibility of making mistakes, either due to carelessness or lack of understanding, and in the long term, these errors can have more important consequences, such as sanctions or the impossibility of carrying out the work activity. In this context, TaxScouts, breaks down the main errors and sanctions that the self-employed can incur and how to avoid them:

Late registration

Self-employed workers who do not register within the indicated period will have a 20% surcharge, as well as the loss of the right to bonuses and other reductions on the quota, such as the flat rate of €60, which will go to be €80 from January 2023.

An example is when the date of registration in the Social Security and the date of registration in the Tax Agency are differentthe possibility of taking advantage of the flat rate is lost, so the self-employed person would have to pay the minimum self-employed fee of €294, which would translate into a difference of more than €2,800 during the first year of activity, in accordance with the current fees.

Having debts with Social Security

Not paying social contributions in a timely manner to Social Security has different sanction levelsdepending on the infraction, ranging from economic fines to jail sentences in the most extreme cases.

In the case of self-employed contributions, for example, paying a fee late within the following month would have a surcharge of 10% and from the second month of 20% and, in addition, if the flat rate is being applied, we will lose the bonus of the flat rate during the months in which it has not been paid on time, plus the surcharge, so that a delay in the payment of €60 means having to pay more than €300 at current rates.

In the case of having dependent employees, violations related to contributions or labor relations give rise to higher sanctions and fines can range between 626 euros and 6,250 euros, in the most serious cases.

Presentation of documentation after the deadline

In the case of having submitted model 303 out of time, the self-employed face a surcharge, not a penalty, although this can come in the event that the self-employed person allows so much time to pass that the Treasury sends a request. This surcharge will be 1% for each month of delay and, in case of reaching 12 months, a surcharge of 15% plus interest on late payment will be applied. In the event that the declaration is negative or informative, the penalty for late delivery may be €200, which would be reduced to €100 due to reductions in paying on time.

Not making the payment correctly

Quarterly models, due to their very nature and the usual haste of the self-employed, are usually subject to a greater number of errors, which cause a payment greater or less than required and which will be considered as an infraction by the Tax Agency.

Faced with these possible situations, the process of the Tax Agency is to regularization of the tax model, removing the non-deductible expense and entering the misplaced sales invoice, and then recalculating the actual tax result. If it demonstrates bad faith, such as the inclusion of false documentation, there may be proportional sanctions between 50 and 150%, and can reach up to €3,000.

“Taxation for the Spanish self-employed can be complicated and cumbersome, especially if we compare ourselves with other neighboring countries such as Denmark, where the registration process is free, online and fees are not paid, but based on billing. Professionals in our country have to dedicate a lot of time to the procedures of the Treasury and Social Security: the different registrations, the quarterly taxes… And all this, in addition, facing confusing and long procedures, which can cause a lack of understanding and errors. at the time of presenting them that, ultimately, result in sanctions of various kinds. Professional and accessible help such as the one offered by TaxScouts can be of enormous help to them, facilitate their activity and, above all, guarantee and protect their interests and rights.”, says Jaume Suñol, General Manager of TaxScouts Spain

Barcelona City Council has launched a challenge for companies, startups, universities and innovation centers to present urban solutions that have as objective reduce motorcycle-related accidents. The chosen projects, which will be applied in the city, are part of the Barcelona Innova Lab Mobility initiative that promotes pilot tests to improve mobility.

Barcelona is one of the European cities with a greater presence of motorcycles and mopeds which represent 33% of the total census of vehicles, and motorcycle drivers account for 86% of the seriously injured, according to the balance of road accidents for the first half of 2022. With the aim of reducing accidents and increasing road safety in the city, these entities have launched this initiative to find and apply innovative solutions on the streets of the city, with the collaboration of the Tomorrow.Mobility show organized by Fira and the EIT Urban Mobility (European Union initiative).

The challenge, launched internationally, counts with an economic endowment of 200,000 euros, which will correspond to a maximum of 80% of the total amount of the winning solutions. The projects can be aimed at resolving the accident rate from behavioral innovation, that is, with solutions related to driving habits, and from technological innovation.

The execution time of the selected proposals is 18 months, of which the pilot phase must be a minimum of six. The proposals must be applicable in a real environment in the short term and must define, in this sense, its deployment space. In addition, it must achieve quantifiable results in relation to the safety of motorcyclists and third parties, which are lasting over time. Its innovative and differential component will also be valued both in the methodologies and resources used and in its execution.

This call is aimed at companies, startups, universities, research centers, technology centers, associations and foundations that have until next March 1 to present their projects. A committee of experts will assess the technical quality of the works presented and will choose the winning solutions that could be applied in Barcelona during that same year. The projects will have international projection with their participation in the next edition of Tomorrow.Mobility, which will be held next November together with the Smart City Expo World Congress at Fira de Barcelona.

Microsoft Teams integrates into Elgato Stream Deck

Elgato Stream Deck

The Elgato Stream Deck is a very interesting peripheral that we had the opportunity to analyze at the time, and that allows you to create different shortcuts and functions that will be associated to each of the available buttons. It allows you to create different usage profiles, and we can switch between them in a very simple way.

For example, we can assign to a button that directly opens a web page, to run a specific application, to perform a specific action and we can also set specific commands and download completely free applications. It is a very interesting solution, especially for professionals who are dedicated to content creation and streaming.

The point is that the Redmond giant has released an official plugin that allows you to integrate an Elgato Stream Deck device with Microsoft Teams. This plugin was announced by the American company earlier this week, but it was officially launched yesterday. The installation process is quite simple, but we can find more information in the official Microsoft forums.

Once installed, we can use the Elgato Stream Deck to access shortcuts and specific functions that will improve our user experience with Microsoft Teams. Thus, for example, we can blur the background in a video call by pressing a button, and we can also assign other specific functions such as raising and lowering our hand, muting ourselves, recording, and even to show live reactions during meetings.

This new plugin enhances the value of the Elgato Stream Deck, making it a very interesting solution for those who work remotely and have to participate in frequent video calls and events. Obviously it is still an excellent option for content creators and streaming professionals as well. I remind you that it is available in different versions, and that the standard MK.2 model with 15 buttons is priced at €149.99.
