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.

However, a great deal of doubt remains about the long-term viability of the nation’s defined benefit plans, with the high-profile collapse of a number of such schemes leading many to question their reliability and suitability.

And these doubts have only been increased by the recent revelation from Mercer that during 2017/18 the accounting deficit for the defined benefit plans of the UK’s top 350 FTSE organisations increased by 28% to £41 billion, mainly because of a £19 billion drop in asset values (from £766 billion to £747 billion).
