A bonus is an economic feature that consists of providing a customer, employee or company with a discount on an amount of money that must be paid, or an increase on an amount that must be collected.
To understand the meaning of this concept we show you a series of examples of bonuses:
- The term bonus is very important especially in the sector of autonomous. In recent times, a new self-employed law has been launched, which grants them many more bonuses than years ago. For example, during the entire first year as a freelancer, they will only have to pay € 50 per month, and not the amount paid by freelancers who are not new.
- We also call a bonus a bonus or prize that is included in a special way in remuneration. The government of a country can grant a 25% bonus to state employees in order to combat the inflation.
- Another of the bonuses that companies can receive are bonuses on their contributions to Social Security. This is that companies can receive a bonus for hiring people who have difficulties accessing the labor market and who belong to certain groups.
- All companies are obliged to pay Social Security contributions and will always receive bonuses if they hire people who, as we have said before, belong to apparently vulnerable groups.
The purpose of these bonuses for companies can be two:
- Alleviate costes of the companies.
- Promote access to the labor market for groups with difficult access to the world of work.
In addition, companies can receive other bonuses for hiring workers indefinitely by sectors or activities, by geographical area or who finally hire workers who were on a defined basis, that is to say temporary.
