/ More stress for the self-employed’, opinion article in ‘La Vanguardia’
Opinion article in La Vanguardia, published on July 15, in which our partner and president of the General Council of Economists, Valentín Pich, reflects on the new contribution system for self-employed workers and points out, among other things, that “possibly, the self-employed are being reluctant to adapt their quotas due to the excessive bureaucracy required for processing”.
Pich recalls that less than 30% of the approximately 3,300,000 self-employed in Spain (about 550,000 in Catalonia) have communicated their income forecast and will wait for the regularization to be made by the Social Security.
/ Sustainability (ESG) in the EU: new European standards and SMEs
Our Consulting partner Salvador Marín published on September 2 in ‘El Economista‘ an opinion article on the role and responsibility of economists in supporting and promoting the culture of sustainability in companies.
In this regard, he recalls the latest legal initiatives of the European Union in this field, such as the new obligations of companies in terms of sustainability reporting. He ends by saying that “reporting on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues is an exercise that is well focused, without flags or trenches, will contribute a lot to the governance of our country and to the productive economy in the medium and long term, but in this equation must be all the actors that influence the economy and the social development of a country“.
