Amor (ATA) criticizes that the self-employed must advance the energy bonus

Controversy the day the energy bonus comes into force. The president of the Association of Self-Employed Workers (ATA) and vice-president of the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE), Lorenzo Amor, has branded this Friday as “regrettable” that self-employed and service station entrepreneurs “have to overtake the State” the extraordinary and temporary bonus of 20 cents per liter of the final price of fuels approved by the Government and that comes into force on April 1.

In a message posted on his Twitter account, Amor lamented that these self-employed workers are moving forward “between 1,000 and 1,500 euros every day” to the State “for its mismanagement and improvisation in the fuel discount”. “As always, I invite you to dinner, but in the end you pay, at least for now”, he added.

According to the provisions of the royal decree approved by the Government, service stations are those who have to advance that bonus of 20 cents per liter to customers that they are going to refuel from 00.00 hours on April 1. This is one of the measures approved by the Executive within the so-called National Response Plan to the consequences of the war in Ukraine.

The third vice president of the Government and minister of Ecological Transition and for the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, has recognized this Friday that “it is possible” that there may be “a small mismatch of one or two days” in the payment to the service stations of the fuel bonus to which the Executive has given the green light. In any case, Ribera has asked the gas stations for “tranquility”, because a “very immediate, digital and automatic payment response” is being “tested” to make this fuel price reduction possible for all citizens. “It’s worth it if it turns out well,” the vice-president underlined in statements to the SER Catalunya chain collected by Europa Press.

Ribera has highlighted that the Treasury is making a “very great effort” to advance the money to the service stations based on their usual volume of sales so as not to generate cash tensions due to the bonus. “The ease offered by the Treasury allows small service stations to have an immediate support mechanism, but it is natural that the Treasury asks that it be requested and that the advance is backed by the business figures of the service stations in the months above to have an approximate idea of ​​the amount to be sent”, he explained.
