In compliance with the Non Residents Tax Act (2004) any non-resident owning property in Spain is obligated to submit a Property Imputed Income Tax declaration before the 31 of December of the year following the purchase of property in Spain and thereafter on a yearly basis (properties owned by clients through Spanish limited companies are not subject to the tax).

As from 2008 wealth tax (in all its different modes) is no longer payable, following recent tax cuts implemented by the Spanish Government and therefore only non-residents property income tax remains as an annual personal tax obligation.

What the Fiscal Representation service includes

Lawbird can assist you in this obligation by providing you with the Fiscal Representation Service, consisting on the following:

  • Calculating the tax due on the basis of the ratable value and  the number of days of ownership (if you bought or sold last year), ensuring you do not pay more than strictly required.
  • Filling out the forms with your personal and property information.
  • Submitting to the tax office our appointment as your fiscal representatives in Spain, thereby assuming the responsibility of receiving any formal communication and acting timely upon them.
  • Representing you during the fiscal year in respect of any communications which we may receive from the Tax Office.

Before you Start

In order for us to calculate the total tax liability, we would need to know the following for each of the properties owned:

  • Address
  • Municipality
  • Purchase Price
  • Percentage of the property the tax payer owns.
  • Ratable Value on the last IBI receipt. This is shown on the IBI (Impuesto de Bienes Inmuebles-Council Tax) receipt under the name of valor catastral and we require this from you, should you have it, given that this bill is typically paid via bank standing order. Please note that new properties (less than 2 years) might not have a ratable value assigned yet.
  • Number of total days you have rented out the property during the taxation period (if applicable and only if such rental has been declared).
You should provide us with a copy of Title Deed of the Property for us to make sure the data provided is accurate.

For each of the tax payers, we need to know:

  • Full Name
  • Address
  • NIE Number
