Both steps are key in the approval of next year’s accounts. But there is still a very important stumbling block in the negotiation between PSOE and Podemos: the Housing Law
The Minister of Finance and Public Function, Mara Jess Montero.Poltica PSOE and Podemos finalize the fiscal impact for 2022 with the need to protect the viability of the ‘social shield’ Interview Miguel Borra (CSIF): “We demand a salary increase for officials of the 3.6% in 2022 ”
The rise in corporation tax to 15%, the extent to which PSOE and Podemos agree although they differ in time, and the negotiation table of the Public Administration, the usual prelude to the General State Budgets (PGE). The Treasury and Public Function this Monday has taken a key step in each of these two elements, thus offering an unequivocal sample that the Ministry is prepared to approve the accounts imminently next year.
In the first case, that of the Corporations figure, the Treasury has published, very opportunely, that “16% of the Spanish multinationals that in 2018 had an annual turnover of more than 750 million declared that they had paid that year worldwide. an average of 1.9% of its global profit “. “These 20 groups”, added from the department of Mara Jess Montero from the ‘Country by country report’ (‘Pas por Pas’) prepared by the Tax Agency, “paid 336 million in Corporation Tax on a profit of 17,833 million “. That is, they endorse the discourse of Podemos, and also of the PSOE, that companies pay very little taxes.
And in case there is any doubt, from the Ministry itself they maintain that, although the Treasury’s intention was to wait until we have the recommendations of the experts to apply any fiscal measure, Podemos already wants to apply a significant fiscal modification. “So we will find ourselves in a middle way,” they point out, “and we all want 15%“, they underline.
Both socialists and morados recognize, in addition, that to maintain the so-called “social shield” over time and even expand the scope of social measures, income is necessary to allow this public spending. That is, collect in taxes to shield those measures. And they believe that the way, until the economic recovery settles in the pockets of the citizens, is that those who have the most pay more. “You have to put the first stone sos“In the tax reform, they point out from the purple sector of the Government.
In fact, the Corporation tax in recent dates has ceased to be the main obstacle for PSOE and United We can agree on a Budget project for 2022. The stone is the future Housing Law, specifically, the regulation of rent. This blockade complicates the purpose of the Socialists to present the Public Accounts and it has led Pedro Snchez to ask Flix Bolaos, Minister of the Presidency, to join the negotiation to seek unblocking. Bolaos and Ione Belarra met earlier this Tuesday, without reaching an agreement. The focus is now on forcing the large homeowners – vulture funds – and not the small ones – less than 10 homes – to lower the rental price.
Rise around 2%
Regarding the salary increase, the same department has summoned the civil servants’ unions to inform them of both the salary increase that will be applied, as well as the offer of public employment. Union sources indicate that they still do not have figures, but they do remember the proposal to increase the 2% for deputies. “And that always leads the way“, they add, while remembering that” the only commitment of the Government is not to lose purchasing power. “
These same sources rule out that a multi-year compensation plan and negotiation will take place, similar to the one signed with former Minister Montoro and which is what the unions are demanding. And at the end of last October, the president of CSIF, Miguel Borra, demanded in an interview granted to EL MUNDO an increase of 3.6% for this year, something that does not seem likely to occur either.
