Government and Basque Country renew the Basque Quota to obtain support for the PGE


The Mixed Commission of the Economic Agreement has approved this Thursday the renewal of the Basque Quota Five-Year Lawwhere the imputation rate at 6.24%, and a provisional contribution of the Basque Country to the State for the base year is set at 1,472 million euros, after the agreement reached between the Government of Pedro Sánchez and the PNV so as not to amend the entire General State Budget of 2023.

This is reflected in the financial agreements signed this Thursday by the Minister of Finance, Maria Jesus Monterowith the Basque representation, made up of the Minister of Economy, Pedro Azpiazu, the Minister of Public Governance, Olatz Garamendiand the three general deputies of the Provincial Councils of the Basque Country.

In this way, The approval of the new quota methodology for the five-year period 2022-2026 has been signed, with an amount very similar to the amount that the Basque Country was currently paying to the State with the previous five-year period. Of course, in this base quota the assessment of active employment policies is not integrated as an assumed burden, which is implemented annually as compensation for the liquid quota to be paid to the State.

The definitive amounts are divided into the liquid quota of 2021 (1,403 million euros), financial compensation (definitive 2021 and provisional 2022) and assessment of active employment policies (definitive 2021 and provisional 2022). In any case, this new quota methodology for the next five years will have to be ratified by Congress and the Senate soon, as it is a norm, which will be processed in the form of single article laws.

two new taxes

Likewise, it has been agreed within this Commission the concertation of two new tax figures, which have to do with environmental management: the special tax on non-reusable plastic containers and the tax on the deposit of waste in landfills, the incineration and the waste co-incineration. In this way, these two new tax figures will be collected by the Basque treasuries. The Economic Agreement will also be adapted to the changes introduced in the Tax on Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases.

What has not finally been introduced, for the moment, have been the new banking and energy taxesalthough the Basque councilor Pedro Azpiazu has recognized that there are contacts with the Executive of Pedro Sánchez to specify it later.

Also the Minimum Vital Income

Among the agreements in financial matters, there is also the instrumentation of the financing of the management of the Minimum Vital Income, which was transferred to the Basque Government a few months ago in the Mixed Transfer Commission. The participation of the Basque Country in the allocations of the System for Autonomy and Dependency Care has also been agreed, and in allocations Extraordinary contributions to finance health functions -close to 13.4 million-, as well as the complement of scholarships -23.9 million-.

As the previous five-year period has expired, the Government of Pedro Sánchez plans to extend the current calculation methodology of the quota in public accounts for next year, budgeting it at an amount of 1,680 million euros.
