Questions & Answers

If you have any questions in regards to selling your property in Almeria and you would like them address please do not hesitate to contact us. 

 

Breakdown of Selling Costs

Non-Fiscal Residents in Spain. The first and most important thing to do is to ascertain whether all owners of the property are fiscal or non-fiscal residents in Spain. 3% of the selling price will be retained and paid into Spanish public treasury if the vendor is not a FISCAL resident. If you have residency in Spain, but have not made a tax declaration here due to being under the minimum threshold for making a declaration, then you can currently become a fiscal resident simply by attending the tax office with a copy of your padrón and requesting a certificate. This will be the case for most retired property owners living in Spain permanently.

If you are below the minimum threshold then you have no obligation to file an annual tax return. If you are above the threshold, then to be considered a fiscal resident, you should file income tax declarations every year declaring your worldwide income to the Spanish tax authorities. The only way of accrediting whether you are a fiscal resident in Spain and avoiding the retention of this 3% is the abstention of a fiscal residency certificate from the Spanish Tax Office that is no more than 3 months old when the sale deeds are signed at the notary office.

 

Fiscal Residents in Spain

As a fiscal resident you are obliged to declare any profit made on your next tax return which is why the 3% is not retained upon signing of deeds. If you have made a loss on the property, then obviously there will be no profit to pay Capital Gains Tax on, however, if you have made a profit (in deeds), then there are various options available to you, depending on whether you will purchase again in Spain or return to the UK or any other country. In this case, we would advise speaking to a tax adviser for personalized advice. For example, if a vendor only has one property in Spain, and it is their habitual residence, then they have 2 years to reinvest the proceeds from their sale in Spain. If they do this, then they will not have to pay CGT. If a non fiscal resident makes a profit on sale then it is up to them to decide which is the lesser of two evils, paying 3% on the sale price or 18% CGT on the profit. If a non-fiscal resident IS retained the 3%, but is selling at a loss, then they can apply for this retention to be refunded, although they must meet certain requirements.

 

Plus Valia Tax (Land Appreciation Tax)

Vendors are also liable to pay the PLUS VALIA tax which is billed by the local Town Hall - the buyers solicitor would normally retain an amount to cover this if the vendor does not have a solicitor to make the payment after signing of deeds.

 

IBI (Council Tax)

Vendors by law are liable for the IBI for the year that the property is sold in - regardless of how early in the year the property is sold - a retention would be made for this if the bill in the current year has not been paid (as above) – solicitors also often suggest that a retention is made against electricity, water and rubbish collection bills unless these are proven to be totally up to date.

Note. Vendors are liable to pay the agents commission as per the agency agreements.
