In the Government´s General Budget for 2018 a new provision has been included for new Autonomos that live in rural villages of no more than 5.000 inhabitants. They can register for the Tarifa Plana Rural, which offers an additional year of the 50 euros/month first stage of the regular Tarifa Plana, so 24 months in total. And if you are a under 30 as a male or under 35 as a female, you will be entitled to a 30% discount on the full contributions during the third year.

Through THIS LINK to the National Statistics Institute you can check how many inhabitants are registered for your village. Type the name of your village in the box on the right side of the page. You need to be on the padrón to be able to benefit from this scheme and you need to make sure the address you enter on the forms to register for tax purposes is the same as your padrón address.

There are conditions though.

1. You must remain registered as Autonomo for at least 2 years, counting from your ´alta´ with the Seguridad Social.
2. You need to remain registered on the padrón of the same town for at least 4 years (counting from your ´alta´ with the Seguridad Social), so even if you stop trading after 2 years, to avoid having to pay back the subsidy, you need to continue on the padrón for another 2 years minimum.
