WILLS & PROBATE
It is essential to make a Spanish will when you
own property, land or businesses in Spain.
Our inheritance law is quite different to other countries.
In Spain we do not have complete freedom to decide
whom left our property after death.
The law imposes the testator the obligation of leaving
part of his estate to specific individuals.
It is highly recommended to grant two different wills,
in your own country for the assets located on there
and a Spanish one for your estates sited in Spain.
Assuming that in your own country exists freedom to appoint the heirs, and you grant a will in Spain, the applicable law will be your national law PROVIDED THAT YOUR RENOUNCE TO THE APPLICATION OF THE SPANISH LAW, in which case you will be free to leave your assets to the ones you love.
All this matters have to be very clear in your will in order that your preventions are executed as you planned when you granted it specially if your assets are going to a “ non forced heir” or decide a determinate estates distribution.
We can arrange this for you planning all your preventions for your last will in both languages, Spanish and English.
If you are not a resident but own a property in Spain, you are obliged to submit your Non Residents Tax return before the end of the following year to the taxable year.
CAPITAL GAINS (Increased Patrimony) generated by the sale of a PROPERTY in Spain of individual non residents.
We undertake the due tax retention and the capital gains tax , asking tax refund if applicable.
