              WILLS & PROBATE









It is essential to make a Spanish will when you own property, land or businesses in Spain. Our inheritance law is quite different to other countries. In Spain we do not have complete freedom to decide whom left our property after death. The law imposes the testator the obligation of leaving part of his estate to specific individuals.




It is highly recommended to grant two different wills, in your own country for the assets located on there and a Spanish one for your estates sited in Spain.




Assuming that in your own country exists freedom to appoint the heirs, and you grant a will in Spain, the applicable law will be your national  law PROVIDED THAT YOUR RENOUNCE TO THE APPLICATION OF THE SPANISH LAW, in which case you will be free to leave your assets to the ones you love.




All this matters have to be very clear in your will in order that your preventions are executed as you planned when you granted it specially if your assets are going to a “ non forced heir” or decide a determinate estates distribution.




We can arrange this for you planning all your preventions for your last will in both languages, Spanish and English.













We offer services for both residents and non Residents people in Spain. As the tax system is quite a complex process, we advise everyone to use a Gestoria to help with tax returns. It can cost you dearly if you make an error when making out your tax return whether if you are resident or not.


Our services will ensure your returns are completed properly and on time. There are many structured Fines for late returns !!

Don’t be caught out and have to pay more than you should!! Accurate returns should save you money…..Let us help and advise you….







A foreign individual is considered as fiscal resident if it is given any of these circumstances:


- Spend in Spain more than 183 days during the calendar year


- The center of economical interest or business is in Spain

In any of these cases, have to submit your income tax in Spain, between May and the end of June every year.






If you are not a resident but own a property in Spain, you are obliged to submit your Non Residents Tax return before the end of the following year to the taxable exercise.




c) INDIVIDUAL BUSSINESS OR COMPANIES intending to ( or ) already settled in Spain.
