Tax advice for expatriates

At Letslaw we are experts in international taxation, and we understand the importance of proper tax planning to ensure the correct fulfilment of tax obligations, and at the same time take advantage of the different tools that the legislation offers to optimize the taxation of the displacement of workers, in order to reduce the cost of the same.

Our team, made up of tax specialists, offers tax advice for expatriates, with in-depth knowledge of the tax regulations associated with the international displacement of personnel.

The continuous movement of workers to and from abroad, as well as the increasing investments made in Spain by non-residents, make it advisable to have the support of a tax advisor specialized in this area.

If your company is in the internationalization phase and wants to implement expatriation policies, we will be your best travelling companion. We will advise you on the different tax benefits that favor the internationalization of Spanish companies.

These benefits, correctly applied, can have a very positive impact on the taxation of the expatriated employee.

When an individual who has not resided in Spain in the last ten years moves to Spain to work, he or she can take advantage of the “inpatriate regime”. In this way, in the year of their displacement and the following five years, they can be taxed according to the Non-Resident Income Tax rules instead of the Personal Income Tax rules.

For highly-paid professionals, this regime can lead to significant tax savings. Thus, instead of applying the general IRPF rates (up to 45%), they will be taxed at 24% for the first 600,000 euros of income obtained and at 45% for the rest.
