How to Calculate Inheritance Tax in Spain

The tax rate to apply increases as the amount inherited increases according to the scale published by each autonomous community in Spain or, if such a scale is not published, then according to the scale published by the central government. Obviously regard must be had to where the assets are located to determine which scale is applicable but the following table of the scale published by the central government serves as an example as to how the tax rates function.


Where three children each inherit, after deductions and charges, an inheritance valued at €45,000 from a parent, to determine the amount of tax payable by each we would calculate as follows:

Up to €39,943.26 the tax payable is €3734.59

He helped me not to put certain points in my divorce, that I later may have regretted. Often in haste a person will ask for or give certain consessions that later will be inappropriate.

I was fortunately stopped from doing this by my lawyer Pedro. Pedro has a professional, helpful and friendly approach.

Our lawyer was very understanding of our situation, and took a lot

of time to strategise for the best possible outcome. Her passionate performance in court exhibited a heartfelt commitment to our case.

Her fees were very reasonable and she was willing to consider payment terms at difficult times. I strongly recommend her and will use her again in the future.

As I am elderly and do not speak Spanish I found the service I received was excellent, everything explained in easy, understandable language and Rosa’s English was fantastic.

Also the cost was very reasonable as I am only on a state pension. In the future if I need any legal advice I will contact her again.
