Expats Can Take Advantage of Tax Changes in Murcia and Andalucía

The situation in Andalucía

Spouses, parents and children are now exempt from inheritance tax on estates of less than €1 million.

However, inheritance tax will apply in cases of beneficiaries who are not immediate next of kin, with the full liability payable in cases where there is no spousal or blood relation.

The new law means that around 95% of beneficiaries in Andalucía will be exempt from inheritance tax. The law change is likely to affect thousands of expats.

The situation in Murcia

Laws that came into effect on 1st January 2018 have reduced the succession tax burden for most families, including many expats and mean that immediate family members can receive estates largely tax-free, with children, spouses and parents liable for only 1% of a succession tax bill. Gifts will also attract just 1% liability; as long as a “documento public” has been signed and the origin of any cash gifts has been verified.

Murcia’s regional government says that around 15,000 taxpayers will benefit, saving a total of around €75 million.

Could payments to expat pensions stop after Brexit?

CoinsBrexit has thrown up so many concerns for expats already that it’s no wonder expats are feeling jittery.

And now it has emerged that private pension providers based in the UK are in danger of not being able to pay pensions to British expats after Britain leaves the EU in 2019.

The risk is so significant that Nicky Morgan, chair of the Treasury select committee, has written a letter raising his concern about the matter to Phillip Hammond, asking the chancellor whether he plans to discuss the problem soon during Britain’s exit negotiations.
