What taxes are payable on the sale of property in Mallorca?
If you, as the owner of a Mallorca property, would like to sell it, you should also obtain comprehensive information about the tax situation. The first thing to be clarified here is whether you are acting as a legal entity, for example on behalf of a company, or as a natural person. It also plays a role whether you are registered as a resident in Spain or not.
The seller is obliged to pay the municipal capital gains tax (Plusvalía). This is a so-called land value increase tax, which, as the name suggests, is a tax that is levied on the increase in the value of land.
If the seller of the property is a company, the usual corporation tax (income tax of the company) of 30% of the profit must also be paid.
However, if the owner is a natural person, the profit from the sale of his property is subject to income tax. There are different tax rates for residents and non-residents. The profit is calculated from the difference between the purchase price at the time and the current selling price.
We would be happy to provide you with comprehensive information about taxes and legal issues relating to your Mallorca property.
