The expenses for the aforementioned reportable employees include both fixed and variable salary payments, social security contributions, collective bonuses, assignment of image rights, etc. All these aspects are taken into account and based on the income of the association and its expenses LaLiga uses a mathematical formula to determine the legal limit in relation to payroll.
