The outsourcing reform granted, according to the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), certainty in labor relations in Mexico, as well as full access to social security.
Eduardo Alcaraz, coordinator of Planning and Evaluation of the IMSS, explained that 2.9 million workers migrated from a service provider to a real company since the implementation of the modifications that seek to prevent tax evasion and the impact on workers’ benefits.
“The subcontracting reform increased the permanence of workers. The employment relationship was no longer truncated. Of the 2.9 million workers who left the subcontracting scheme, at the end of November last year, 2.8 million contributed on the 31 days of December of 2021, while in December of the previous year the figure was 2.7 million. l”, he stated in his participation in a congress organized by Thomson Reuters.
In addition to the benefit for the workers, Eduardo Alcaraz asserted that the outsourcing reform also benefited the government’s coffers, by leaving a higher Income Tax (ISR) collection.
He explained that there were improvements in the collection indicators, improvements in the control processes, a favorable evolution of employment and the contribution base salary, as well as the simplification of the processes and their digitization.
According to data from the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP), at the end of 2021, 1 trillion 895,442 million pesos were obtained from income tax, 1.8% more in annual comparison.
Only in December, 211,678 million pesos were collected, which meant a growth of 21.9% compared to the same month of the previous year.
