It is very probable that you are not up to date on the inheritance taxes in Spain. Welex will give you all necessary information.
But let’s take into account two aspects: this scale of taxes will be applied to all non-fiscal residents in Spain. To the contrary, in case any of the heirs are fiscal residents in Spain, this amount may vary.
Let’s talk about whether the national law or the law of the autonomous community will be applied. Since the law 21/2001 of 27th December, the inheritance tax in Spain will be collected by the local tax offices, which have as well the right to issue any other law in addition to the national law.
Finally, we wish to deal with the drawing up of a will in Spain.
