Our Dedicated Attorneys will Take Taxes Off Your Mind

What is the Beckham Law?

 

The Spanish tax regime can be pretty demanding, as regular tax residents have to pay taxes on their worldwide income, which can go up to 52%, and also pay taxes on their worldwide wealth. Quite a lot!

Fortunately, there are several tax benefits available that will help you save money, like the Special Expatriate Tax Regime, known as Beckham Law.

With this regime, you will only be taxed on your Spanish earnings and foreign income from employment. Any other worldwide income won’t be taxed nor will it have to be declared.

What are the main advantages of this law?

The Beckham Law, named after the famous football player, David Beckham, who was the first person to benefit from it, provides many advantages:

  • Allows you to pay property and income taxes as if you were a non-resident during your first 6 residency years.
  • You will only have to pay a flat tax rate of 24% on your first 600,000 euros income.
  • You will only have to pay a flat tax rate of 47% for any income above 600,000 euros.
  • Avoid declaring your goods and assets located abroad and getting taxed on your worldwide income and worldwide wealth.
  • Avoid getting taxed on foreign capital gains (dividends, sale of shares, interest, etc.).

Please note that you could be subject to a Wealth Tax if your Spanish net worth exceeds the limit of the autonomous community where your highest value of assets is located.

To know more about the net worth limit in your autonomous community, get in touch today.

Who can benefit from it?

If you’re an expat living continuously in Spain for more than 183 days, you will be considered a tax resident and therefore be obligated to pay taxes on your earnings.

The Beckham Law can be applied to Spanish tax residents that fall under the following situations:

  • Foreign individuals with a job offer in Spain that haven’t been tax residents in the last 10 years.
  • High-income expats that hold executive or management positions.
  • Managers who have relocated and work in a Spanish company.

The following individuals are excluded:

  • Self-employed workers or Autónomos.
  • Professional sports athletes.
  • Directors of business entities that own more than 25% of equity.

Laia Fernandez has done an outstanding job with my divorce case and I can not thank you enough for that. She was able to explain to me all the steps very clearly and was very proactive. She really made it simple & transparent. The fact that she is bilingual (English/Spanish) also helped a lot !Thank you once again Laia for everything !

We applied for a 1 year non-lucrative visa, the visa team led by Magdalena Barrueto provided a first-class exceptional service to us. The process of applying for the visa is long and complex, however with the professionalism, expertise, guidance and support of the team we successfully received our visas. The team led us through the process in a clear and concise way, providing important support with the translation of documents. We cannot recommend Carbray highly enough.

Dealing with the bureaucracy in Spain can be intimidating for newcomers. It’s also confusing! This is particularly true when applying for residency. Carbray International did an excellent job shepherding my wife and me through the process. We’re very pleased with their work and recommend their services in the highest possible terms.

Carbray International Law Firm was an absolute god send. I am so delighted with the outcome of my case. My lawyer, Magdalena was very efficient, was able to communicate and be very knowledgeable about the subject matter at hand. Furthermore, Michelle who assisted me on the day was very charismatic and friend to calm my nerves. Both of them made my application process extremely easy. I would not hesitate to recommend Carbray.
