General Posting Guidelines

Think first before posting, think of the the way you phase your question especially when asking for help. Here are some general guidelines.

 

Please use SEARCH first! Tab top of forum.

There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It is easy to search – just click the “Search” tab at the top of the forum page.

 

Be DESCRIPTIVE and Do not use stupid topic names

Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects. They do not get attention and only annoy people).

Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :

I have a question can you help me?

Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

Here is a good example of a way to post a question

How can I explain to my child the reason they need to go to school?

Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor

Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as “if you are not going to help do not waste my time replying”.

ESLwatch created the topic: How much non residents tax should you be paying on a property?
Question:
How much non residents tax should I be paying on a property?

Answer:
It's a set % if the *catastral value You pay tax on either 2% or 1.1% of catastral if the catastral valuation is post 1994, EU residents pay 19% tax and non EU 24%.

*Catastral is the official value of the property similar to rate-able value in the UK. You can find it on your *IBI invoice.
*IBI is an abbreviation of “Impuesto sobre Bienes Inmuebles”, literally translated as “property tax”. However, it is better explained as the Spanish equivalent of the old UK style “council tax” that is paid every year to your local town hall.

The amount of tax to be paid generally depends on:

the build size of the property
the classification of the land the property is built on
the size of the plot
the proximity to services and infrastructure

Based on the above factors, the local town hall (ayuntamiento) will assign a “valor cadastral” (taxable value), to each property in its area.

As a guideline, the “valor cadastral” will probably be about 60 to 70% of the actual value of your property. These values can legally be adjusted every eight years, to allow for appreciation and depreciation.

The IBI is then calculated based on a coefficient multiplied by the “valor cadastral”.

The coefficient applied varies between 0.4% and 1.3% for urban properties. There are significant differences between municipalities, depending for example on whether it is a provincial capital or the level of public services provided by that particular council.

When purchasing a property, it is essential to request a copy of IBI payments (Your assigned lawyer should do this!). On the IBI receipt you can also clearly see the “valor cadastral” of the property.

If you have a “firma digital” you can request more details about your property here: www.sedecatastro.gob.es/ (Change into English by selecting “welcome” at the top right hand side of the page)

Most town halls send out written requests for IBI payments. The letters explain how, where and by what date the payments must be made.

Some town halls offer discounts for prompt payment.

All town halls add surcharges for late payment.

As this tax is payable on an annual basis, it is a good idea to set up a standing order to avoid any unnecessary surcharges for late payment.

It is important to note that whether or not you receive a payment request from your town hall, legally the responsibility lies with the property owner to pay the tax on time, each year.

If you are uncertain about your IBI tax, speak to your local town hall. Support them by paying your dues and don’t get caught out by late payment.
