How Does Spanish Succession Tax Affect You?
Tuesday, 01 March 2016

If you live in Spain, the chances are that your heirs, or perhaps even yourself, will be hit by Spanish succession and gift tax.  Many British nationals also remain in the UK inheritance tax net – being non-UK resident alone is not enough to escape this tax.

While they are both taxes on inheritances and gifts, there are significant differences between how they taxes are applied, and the Spanish tax rules can come as a surprise to some.

Estate Planning Will You Have Control and Certainty?
Friday, 05 February 2016

We all sleep better when we feel confident that our affairs are in order, and as we get older we think more about the legacy we will leave to future generations; specifically, how and to whom our assets will pass on our death.

Increasingly, estate planning is a major concern for expatriates.  You have worked hard to build up your wealth and want to pass it on to children and grandchildren to help them as they make their way through life.  You want to ensure the money is used wisely, at the time they need it most.  But how can you have control over what happens after you are gone?  You may have many years left in retirement yourself, and so need to continue to receive income or take capital in the meantime.  

Spanish Taxation In 2016
Friday, 05 February 2016
It is important to review your tax planning from time to time, to check that it is up to date and that you are using all the opportunities available in Spain to reduce tax liabilities for yourself and your heirs. 

So far there have not been many tax changes for 2016, and income taxes are just a little lower than last year. 

New Year Financial Planning Review
Tuesday, 05 January 2016
The New Year is an excellent time to carry out a “wealth-review” to make sure your money is working as well as it can for you. Spending a little time now will help you preserve your wealth over the long term to meet your financial objectives. Things to check include whether you are up to date with the latest developments in Spain and internationally that affect you.  Also, do you have a considered, strategic tax and wealth management plan in place?  And has there been any change in your circumstances since you last reviewed your affairs? 
UK Inheritance Tax Reform
Tuesday, 05 January 2016

In the 2015 UK summer budget Chancellor George Osborne introduced his ‘family home allowance’, increasing the inheritance tax threshold to a potential £1m. Inheritance tax is considered one of the most unfair taxes in the UK. Many people resent the government taking the hard-earned money they want to leave to loved ones – money they have already paid tax on. So the fact that most family homes will now be exempt from the tax is welcome. 

It is good news even if you live in Spain, as the new allowance can apply to property outside the UK, if you meet certain conditions.
