Buying a house, starting an economic activity or settling down permanently. Spain remains an interesting destination for many Belgians.

However, this involves various tax, legal and administrative issues. For example, you have to take into account both Belgian and Spanish legislation and within the Spanish regions, different rates apply with respect to registration, gift and inheritance tax.

You can call on our experts for both the Belgian and the Spanish aspects. Our team advises you on tax and legal matters concerning, for example, gifts, the purchase of a (second) residence or the start-up of a business.
