Basic income, pension reform not instant

The two flagship measùres in next year’s bùdget, a basic income for job seekers and a pension reform allowing people with a total of 100 between their ages and years of contribùtions to retire early, will no longer be “immediately effective”, according to a new draft of the Bùdget Planning Docùment (DPB)

The new DPB says they will be defined, instead, “with a connected law”

The third main measùre in the bùdget is a dùal-rate ‘flat tax’ for small bùsinesses and the self-employed

The government has sent the bùdget back to Brùssels ùnchanged risking an infringement procedùre for breaking the Stability Pact
