NEWS WRAP – HNWIs in Spain Braced for Budget

While the formation of a government headed by the socialist party’s Pedro Sánchez as prime minister, backed by the far-left “Unidas Podemos” party and its leader, Pablo Iglesias, now means that the government can begin to get on with the work of passing laws and fulfilling a parliamentary agenda, early proposals agreed by the two party leaders have revealed possible issues for some residents.

For example, HNW expats in Spain may face restrictions on their expat financial and tax planning opportunities. New government plans include:

  • The introduction of two new tax brackets – one for income over €130,000 and another for income over €300,000.
  • A review of HNWI tax contributions, with a view to ensuring greater revenue.
  • A review of the tax havens list and a moratorium on tax amnesties.
  • Greater regulation of SICAV investment vehicles.

At the moment, however, it is difficult to predict anything with certainty; it will not be until the coalition’s first budget that HNWI expats in Spain will know whether the coalition has been able to pass these intentions into law, so it will be incumbent upon expats to keep an eye on the political news over the coming months.
