No matter the query, we will be glad to provide you with a study on what will be the implications on your scenario in Spain, tax-wise, and what solutions can we offer or suggest.

What is the expected timeline?

Once we have gathered all the information required, and we have clarified any questions we may have, we will provide you with our tax study in no more than three working days.

Once we have provided the tax study, we will be available to discus the specifics of your arrangements, explore any clarifications and provide our recommendations to ensure you are tax efficient.

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

We use Lexidy for our payroll and accounting services in Spain, and they have provided great service to us for 3 years. They always respond on time, are proactive, and accurate with their work. I would recommend using them. Our contact Isabel Sanchez is great to work with.

I contracted them to prepare and file my tax return for Spain and paid for that service in advance. Six weeks later, two days before the return was due, and only because I asked for the status, they told me they didn't have the manpower to do my return. I have been trying for the last month to have my money returned and have still not received the refund. At first they told me they would be issuing the payment, but the most recent inquiry has gone unanswered.

ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY - FROM THE TOP DOWNLexidy prepared my taxes for the past two years.Earlier this year, Spanish authorities questioned my 2020 return: their Tax Specialist prepared a response. When I emailed him a subsequent notification, I learned his paternity leave began unexpectedly.With only one staff member out, this “boutique firm” revealed itself - not with care or quality service.The tax specialist’s stand-in, a trainee, ignored two emails requesting help. After four-days, I contacted Managing Director, Joanna Mello. When she did not respond after two more days, I contacted CEO Federico Richardson Alborná. His assurance that the matter would be addressed at the “earliest” was filled by another three days of silence.Contacting him again, using “reply all” activated the accounting manager. He informed me the office was understaffed and suggested I handle the matter on my own.  I replied (with copy to the ever mute CEO), suggesting he speak with his boss about customer service and reliability.The accountant summarily filed some documents, but failed to make good on his promise to phone the authorities. Silence from the CEO: no apology for his staff’s conduct.Another demand has arrived. The tax expert remains on leave. Calls to the Boutique’s CEO Phone go unanswered. Sr. Richardson’s silence could not indicate more clearly the unimportance of service or concern about the reliability of the firm’s work.Run, don’t walk, from Lexidy.

Really disappointed with their service. Very limited level of proactiveness. I’ve never been provided explanation on what documents mean nor given proactive advice on how to best reduce tax etc. to make the experience even worse, I have been ignored my emails regarding the annual tax return (declaración) and do not have access to my Libros de Registro.

Avoid the tax department unless you want to be misinformed, and potentially end up paying more taxes than necessary.

The Lexidy team is uniquely positioned to provide pan-European business and tax advisory services; what would be complex or impossible for a country-specific advisor is straightforward for Lexidy. They answered in days what would take weeks for other firms.

Absolutely Professional and worth-it Experience!I can highly recommend working with Carlota Llopart and Lexidy! Carlota and the team have gone beyond my expectations when it comes to owning and actually even driving the steps for my mortgage, the purchase of my flat as well as taxes filed. I have had an extremely difficult seller, but I was able to fully trust the team to guide me through this first acquisition.I have already recommended Lexidy to friends who had similar positives experiences and will continue working with Carlota and the team. Side note, me being German: Great value for money too!

Lexidy has been a lifesaver. The entire team has helped us so much on different matters both personal and corporate. Isabel in correcting an error by a previous accountant that was costing us an extra €1000 every month in social security payments! Jose with various matters and tax advice. Diego in helping us get documents notarized in Valencia even though he is based in Madrid. I cannot recommend them enough!
