Wealth Tax to be Scrapped in Andalucia

The President of the Junta, Juanma Moreno, announced on Monday that Wealth Tax will be scrapped in Andalucia from the 21st of September. This will apply to both Spanish nationals and to those who have a secondary residence there. The region follows Madrid as the second region to subsidize this tax. 

This is being done in an attempt to attract high-level tax payers to the area and to encourage them to remain in Andalucia permanently in order to bring an increased level of investment into the area. This follows 20 of the top wealth tax payers leaving the region in 2022, taking with them 18 million euros worth of tax. 

This is predicted to attract 7000 new residents to the area, the economic benefits of which will exceed by far  the 0.6% of regional income provided by wealth tax in previous years. 

The region is also set to reduce personal income tax by 4.3% and abolish the water tax.

The triple lock remains after Tory-DUP deal… but for how long?

Open padlockConcerns that the triple lock system is on its last legs are not new. But while the triple lock’s future has looked tenuous for a while, it has managed to survive the deal between the Conservative Party and the Democratic Union Party.

The Tories had previously planned to get rid of the triple lock – a mechanism to ensure the state pension rises either by the rate of inflation, wage growth, or by 2.5% (whichever is highest) every year – in 2020, replacing it with a double lock (which would remove the 2.5% element). But losing a parliamentary majority has caused the party to make a U-turn (probably because the DUP were strong supporters of the system staying put), and there was no mention of the triple-lock’s abolition in the Queen’s Speech.
