7.5.2. Direct estimation scheme. Normal and simplified modality

There are two ways of determining the returns of economic activities in direct estimation:

  • Normal direct assessment

  • Simplified direct estimate.

The simplified direct estimate scheme will be applied when the following circumstances occur:

  1. The activities carried out by the employer are not subject to the objective assessment regime.

  2. That in the previous year the net turnover (ordinary income) for all the activities carried out by the taxpayer does not exceed 600,000 euros per year.

  3. That you have not given up the application.

  4. That no activity carried out by the taxpayer is in the normal modality of the direct estimate regime.

The simplified direct estimate scheme has the following special rules for determining deductible expenses:

  1. Depreciation of tangible fixed assets must be carried out on a straight-line basis, depending on a simplified repayment table, especially for this type.

  2. The total deductible provisions and expenses of difficult justification will be quantified exclusively by applying the percentage of 5 per 100 on the net yield, this calculation is carried out and applied by the program.
