As some teachers have said they found these articles useful, I’ll continue to share news and updates which might help. Specially to those who don’t have legal advisors or who have problems with the Spanish language.

So, today’s article is about the “Programa Continúa“, from the Comunidad de Madrid. It is aimed at those “autónomos” (including business owners) who have continued to work during this crisis, and can’t apply for previous programs as they haven’t lost more than 75%.

  • Have no debts with Hacienda or with the Social Security.
