Frequently Asked Questions

For the tax year that you are a Spanish Non Tax resident, you will only have to pay taxes in Spain if the cost of your salary is reinvoiced or paid in the end by the Spanish company.

Your foreign employer will not have directly any withholding obligations in Spain.

However, if the foreign employer has a permanent establishment in Spain, through a branch, and is deducting the cost of your salary from its taxable base for corporate income tax, they must make withholdings on your salary, which correspond to your personal income taxation.

You would only have to pay taxes in Spain on the sale of your foreign assets if you sell it during a tax year when you have been a Spanish tax Resident.

If that is the case and you are younger than 65 years old in the tax year you sell the property, you will have to pay capital gains taxes when selling the foreign property.

However, Spain has a capital gains exemption if you reinvest the money following the sale. It works as follows:

You bought the property for €400,000 and later you sell it for €1,200,000.

You have made a capital gain of €800,000 and buy a new home in Spain for €600,000

As you have reinvested 50% of the amount received, this portion is exception from capital gains tax. So you will only pay taxes on the 50% of the capital gain. In this scenario, you will pay capital gains on €400,000.

To receive this exemption, you must:

– live in the property for at least two years before you sold it
– buy a new Spanish property within two years of selling your former home
– live in the new Spanish property within a year of buying it
– live in the new Spanish property for at least three years following the purchase

I've worked with Lexidy for three years on my immigration status. They are professional, knowledgable and reliable. In particular, I've worked with Cristina and her team who have provided consistent top-notch service. Cristina has a thorough and clear communication style, and she has been a great source of information. I highly recommend working with Lexidy.

Working alongside Cristina has been an excellent experience. I initially contacted her from Pakistan and had a one-on-one meeting in Madrid upon my arrival. She is an exceptional lawyer with extensive expertise in her field. Despite my numerous concerns and questions, she remained remarkably calm and patiently explained everything to me, demonstrating both her exceptional professionalism and personal qualities.Thanks to her assistance, I obtained my TIE in Spain. For anyone seeking immigration advice or services, I highly recommend reaching out to her. Cristina, along with Lexidy, offers a comprehensive solution for realizing your European dreams. Many thanks, Cristina and Lexidy, for your invaluable support.

We get to know about Spanish Golden Visa by property investment through web searches but as a foreigners we have limited knowledge about Golden Visa application compliance and property sales and purchase governing rules and regulations.There are many websites out there listing out how Golden Visa legal system or property ownership in Spain works but we know it is even beyond language bearer that we need an experience, responsive and dedicated specialist to do the job.We come across Lexidy Law, which specialized in assisting foreigners in Golden Visa application and in our case through the property purchases (there are few types of ways for qualifying on Spanish Golden Visa application).Because of the straightforward services price structure of Lexidy and easy to understand explanations of the home-purchasing process, we felt confident after meeting with Mr.Alejandro who is the first person we met of the application process.During our property purchase, the sale of the house has come to a halt and become a complex and problematic deal as a result of sellers’ family dispute on the sales proceed distribution. The argument lasted for two months, pushing back the completion deadline.The Lexidy real estate team has done an excellent job, in particular with the lead by Señor Juan Diego.Juan is highly knowledgeable, competent and down to earth practical lawyer in this field; his previously work experience in real property gives us good spectrum of views and advices with alternative or solutions and he shows his capability in ranking them logically so we do the decision to choose the best fit for ourselves.He promptly provides updates on every development and highlights complication or consequences from both the seller and buyer perspective (nearly every day). His effective and fluent communication skills in written and spoken English saved thousand words for non Spanish language speakers like us; He maintain his client's best interests in mind yet remain independent in giving his advices.Lexidy's real estate team has spent a considerable amount of time and resources helping us have a successful closure to this property purchase.Yes, we are now proud house owners, and Lexidy didn't charge us extra for the additional work and efforts on the process hiccup. We are impressed and thankful with the professionalism.Thankful Lexidy, it would be impossible for us to have a flawless closure and a successful property transaction which now lead us to the final path of Spanish Golden Visa process which handle by Ms.Laura and her team.It is truly a blessing and we sincerely hope that our review might also benefit you in finding a correct choice of Spanish Golden Visa application service provider.

Update: I received the money in two days after I left this comment, big kudos to the people involved in this. It's really incredible, I did not expect it. Thank you very much!Horrible service! I was their client for almost 2 years and they transferred me to another accountant. All could’ve been great, but they are not returning my money for a service they didn’t complete (around 400€) for already more than 6 months and what is even worse, not even replying to my emails. If I would be you, I would definitely not sign with them.

Exceptional service with exacting details. Not only were the staff friendly but also extremely exhausting to make everything simple, efficient, and clear. Whether it's about the new digital visas or retiring visas, they're your obvious choice!

A great law firm that covers anything an expat might need. I needed help with real estate initially, and they also helped me with immigration, taxes, and corporate legal matters. Fantastic people to work with. Alejandro from their real estate and immigration department is my main contact and he is an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

I had an issue with an incorporation and I had to request a refund for my order. It took a little longer to get the refund but the CEO took personal care of my case and issued the refund as soon as it heard about the case. Very serious and responsible company.

Lexidy Law team provided me excellent service. Their promptness and customer service was outstanding. I used Lexidy to facilitate the purchase of my house in Marbella Spain and they made the experience so simple and pleasant. I highly recommend Lexidy’s services. Juan Muñoz and Alejandro Cano were my point of contact and found both of them a joy to work with.
