Capital Gains in Spain and Canary Islands Tax Reclaim

Mass consumer action being led by leading Spanish Lawyers office. I f you have sold a property in Spain between 2004 and the end of 2006 you could be entitled to reclaim some of the capital gains payments made on your property from the Spanish government , this applies to all properties in the Canary Islands and other Spanish territories where you are liable for the same capital gains as local residents.

Learn about a new mass consumer action being led by Spanish lawyers Costa Álvarez Manglano & Associates.
If you sold a property in Spain between 2004 and the end of 2006 you could be entitled to reclaim thousands of pounds from the Spanish Government. Are you entitled to make a claim?
Between the beginning of 2004 and the end of 2006, UK citizens and other non resident EU citizens paid 35% Capital Gains Tax (CGT), whilst Spanish nationals only paid 15%.
The European Commission has said that this 20% overpayment contravenes European Community Treaty discrimination rules and was therefore charged illegally by the Spanish Government.
As a direct result of this ruling, if you have been affected and can meet the requirements laid out below, you could be entitled to reclaim the 20% CGT overpayment you made in Spain, PLUS approximately 6% interest per annum. It is estimated that the average amount owed to British and other non-spanish citizens is between €10-30,000!
Time is of the essence, as claims must be made within four years of a property being sold.

Do you qualify?
To make a claim you must meet the following criteria:
You sold a Spanish property between the beginning of 2004 and the end of 2006.
You were not officially resident in Spain when you sold it.
You paid the Capital Gain Tax to the Spanish Authorities.
You sold your Spanish property as an individual; not as a company.
If you think you qualify visit or call 0845 680 3849 for more information.

Beach Upgrades for Costa Caleta!!

Fuerteventura’s push to improve tourism continues.

Caleta De Fuste has always been a very popular holiday destination on the islands east coast. It’s purpose built nature ensures visitors have the facilities they require and the horseshoe shaped beach is always extremely popular with families.

Even though the beach itself is natural, the sand that makes up the surface was imported several years ago, and being of a finer grade can suffer from wind erosion. For many years the authorities on the island have been asking the Spanish government for funds to improve and extend the beach, after meetings in Madrid it has been agreed that funding of 4.5 million euros has been authorised.Plans that have been approved include completely digging out the beach area by 1.5 meters, removal of the rocks that at present act as a natural barrier, this will increase water flow to the beach and stop the silt deposits building. The beach will then be filled with a white sand of larger grade which will stop it been blown away.Works will also include extension of coastal paths from Cost Antigua around the beach and harbour area and all the way past the Sheraton Hotel to the Atlantico Shopping Centre.This work will not affect the beach areas too much as they will work on half at a time so to allow access for visitors.The ideas for this project will make Caleta de Fuste and the surrounding areas even more popular with the tourist market and property investors.
