Tax Update

Tax Update | Learning about Spain | Scoop.it

The government promised it wouldn’t be increasing taxes – first pledge broken then. But you needn’t worry too much, they’ve now promised that even if they put them up temporarily, they will be reduced again (presumably just before the next general election!) It looks as though the changes to tax we can expect will include:

Increase in IBI (equivalent to council taxes)Increase in income tax

The increase in income tax will not apply to everyone. However, increases to IBI impact on us all. At this stage we can’t be sure just how much this annual property tax will go up by. Don’t worry we’ll be letting you know!

In addition there are to be continued efforts to cut down on fiscal fraud. The latest is setting a limit on how much of a bill can be settled in cash. Watch out all those jobbing builders.
