What is the wealth tax

Wealth Tax is a yearly tax on your total assets as of December 31st. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Purpose: It taxes the overall wealth you possess, a tax not present in many OCDE countries.
  • Who’s Affected: Both Spanish Tax Residents and Non-Residents need to pay attention.
    • Spanish Tax Residents: Taxed on their global assets.
    • Non-Residents: Only taxed on assets in Spain.

The Wealth Tax looks at the net value of your assets. Here’s a simple breakdown of what’s taxable:

  • Real Estate: Taxed based on the highest value, whether it’s the official assessed value, the value for other taxes, or the purchase price. If it’s under construction, the tax is based on what you’ve paid so far.
  • Bank Accounts: This includes checking, savings, and any term deposits. Don’t forget about Cryptocurrency accounts and wallets!
  • Stocks & Equity:
    • Stocks or values from any organized markets.
    • Shares or other forms of equity, whether or not they’re from organized markets.
  • Insurance & Pensions: This covers life insurances and any pensions, whether temporary or lifelong.
  • Personal Items:
    • Jewelry and luxury furs.
    • Motor vehicles over 125 cc.
    • Recreational items like boats, sport vessels, airplanes, and yachts.
    • Art and antiques.
  • Rights & Royalties:
    • Earnings from patents or trademarks.
    • Intellectual and industrial property rights.

If your net wealth exceeds certain limits set by different regions in Spain, you’ll need to fill out the 714 Form and report all your assets, no matter where they’re located. Here’s a quick look at the limits:

  • Catalonia: €500,000
  • Andalusia: €700,000
  • Valencia: €600,000
  • Madrid: Even though there’s no Wealth Tax here, if your net wealth is over €2,000,000, you’ll still need to report it (but you won’t be taxed on it).
  • Getting Started: Once you choose our services, we’ll drop you an email.
  • Your Asset Details: In the email, we’ll ask for a list of all your assets worldwide and their values.
  • Review & Draft: We’ll check the list, filter out any assets that don’t need to be included, and then draft your Wealth Tax Return.
  • Potential Savings: Where possible, we’ll apply a reduction based on combined limits of both the Personal Income Tax and the Wealth Tax.
