Ordinance No. 205/2022, of August 11, amends Ordinance No. 170-A/2020, clarifying the rules for withdrawing the extraordinary incentive to normalize business activity, namely with regard to the exemptions from contributions to social security that were associated with it.

The withdrawal of extraordinary incentives for the normalization of business activity could be carried out under the exceptional regime provided for in paragraph 5 of article 6 of Decree-Law no. current, and under the conditions defined therein.

Article 6(5) of Decree-Law no. (...) may, exceptionally, until December 31, 2020, withdraw from this support and access support for the progressive recovery (...), without the need to return the amounts already received”.

Ordinance No. 205/2022 clarifies that in this type of dismissal there is an unofficial change to the support modality in the amount of a guaranteed minimum monthly remuneration (RMMG) per worker covered by the measures paid in one go, whenever the employer was covered by the incentive in the modality provided for in support in the amount of two RMMG per worker paid in stages over six months. The right to a partial waiver of 50% of the payment of social security contributions borne by the employer remains.

This change takes effect on the date of entry into force of Decree-Law no. November 2020.

This diploma takes effect on August 12, 2022.
