1Who is this Service for?

When a non-resident owner of a property in Spain sells their property, the purchaser is obliged by law to deposit 3% of the purchase price directly with the Spanish tax authority (AETA) in lieu of payment of all taxes due on the property ownership. So, this is the Spanish government’s way of ensuring that vendors pay Capital Gains tax and also any non-resident property tax. While this service is frequently offered by unqualified individuals in the property sector, it can often be a mistake to rely on them as the procedure is rather more complex than they may have anticipated and requires a good understanding of taxation and of course a high level of Spanish.

2What does this service consist of?

  • Initial discussion with an English-speaking lawyer specialising in property law to determine the amount that may be reclaimed
  • Submission of any missing returns to the AEAT, if necessary
  • Submission of reclaim of 3% withholding tax
  • Payment of the relevant amount to the vendor’s bank account
