The Government will guarantee the right to housing for people with the most difficulties and, therefore, has established a moratorium on the payment of mortgage payments for mortgage debtors in a situation of special vulnerability who see their income decrease.
Economic vulnerability assumptions:
a) That the debtor becomes unemployed or, in case of being an entrepreneur or professional, suffers a substantial loss of income or a substantial drop in sales.
b) That the mortgage payment, plus basic expenses and supplies, is greater than or equal to 35 per cent of the net income received by all the members of the family unit.
c) That, as a consequence of the health emergency, the family unit has suffered a significant alteration in its economic circumstances in terms of effort to pay a mortgage and the rest of the expenses. For the purposes when the effort represented by the mortgage or There has been a substantial drop in sales when this drop is at least 40%
The Government has approved to streamline the Temporary Employment Regulation Files (ERTE) and that all affected workers have the right to receive the contributory unemployment benefit even if they do not comply with the minimum contribution period necessary, and that time spent in unemployment will not count as spent.
The regulatory basis of the benefit will be the result of computing the average of the bases of the last 180 days quoted in the company, or failing that, the time immediately prior to the legal unemployment situation. The duration of the suspension will last until the end of the suspension period of the employment contract.
Companies whose activities have been affected such as by closure or cancellation of activities, restrictions on the mobility of people or goods, isolation to avoid contagion, lack of supplies, etc. may request an ERTE due to force majeure.
The procedure will begin at the request of the company, accompanied by a report regarding the link of the loss of the activity as a consequence of COVID-19. The company must communicate its request to the workers.
The existence of force majeure, as a motivating cause for the suspension of contracts, must be verified by the labour authority.
The resolution of the labour authority will be issued within 5 days, taking effect from the date of the act causing the force majeure.
In the cases in which the company decides to suspend the contract for economic, technical, organisational and production reasons related to COVID-19:
Extraordinary benefit for the cessation of activity for those affected by the declaration of the state of alarm for the management of the health crisis situation caused by COVID-19.
Term: one month or until the last day of the month in which said alarm state ends.
However, if on the date of the suspension of the activity or the reduction in billing this requirement is not met, the managing body will invite the self-employed person to pay so that, within the non-extendable period of thirty calendar days, he will enter the fees due.
The deferral of the income of the deferrable tax debts corresponding to all those declarations whose term of presentation and income ends from the date of entry into force of this royal decree-law and until May 30, 2020 will be granted. The conditions of the deferral will be the following:
a) The term will be six months.
b) No default interest will be accrued during the first three months of the deferment.

I have worked with Carlos and the team at ATA for 10 years or more and they have worked diligently to prepare my accounts and taxes promptly. They have always been on hand to discuss and advise any difficult questions I have had regarding taxes (business and personal) and complex Spanish employment laws.
Since meeting Carlos and the team at ATA I finally feel that my accounting needs are being looked after by a professional and efficient company. They are always at the end of the phone for any questions or queries that I have which are always answered in a very clear manner. I highly recommend their services.
