In Spanish ‘La Ley de Segunda Oportunidad’ enabling those that couldn’t make their business work and ended up being in debt, to have a large percentage of their debts (up to 70%) annulled when they want to try running their own business as self employed Autonomo again.
This law was introduced in 2015, but didn’t include debts with the Seguridad Social or the Tax Office.
A recent ruling by the Supreme Court, a result of legal action by several Autonomo Associations, has changed this.
The resolution focuses on those self-employed workers in a situation of insolvency, that is, not everyone will be able to take advantage of said regulations. In addition, the Supreme Court has left it to the courts that part of the debt is cancelled and how the remaining debt will be paid within five years. That is, it extends the flexibility to pay the bill with the Tax Office.
