Our team of lawyers, tax specialists, and architects is prepared to offer comprehensive and personalized advice based on many years of experience working in the Malaga and Costa del Sol region.

Tejada Solicitors in Torrox can deliver professional legal advice in a range of cases, such as:
Looking to buy a property? Our property lawyers support clients through the entire process of property conveyancing, from legal searches of the property, contract drafts, tax breakdowns, to completion. Alongside providing an architectural analysis of the property and highlighting all the taxes involved with the process, we also ensure that your desired property is free of charges and legal.

A final bill is presented to the clients at the end of the journey, with all taxes and expenses paid. Any balance in the client’s favour is immediately transferred.
Looking to sell your property in Spain? Our tax advisor will inform you about the cost of selling, including all of the necessary taxes that go along with the sale. Our solicitors will represent you every step of the way, negotiating the sale conditions with the buyer’s own solicitor.
We inform our clients on International Taxation between Spain and their origin country, giving advice on ways they can avoid double taxation and receive deductions.
We also provide full support regarding all relevant aspects of taxation in Spain, including Personal Income tax, Inheritance tax, and important documents such as form 720, dependent on whether our client is a Spanish citizen or not.
The NIE number is used as a form of identification for foreign citizens carrying out certain procedures in Spain. This number is required for processes such as the purchasing of a property or vehicle, or setting up a bank account.
This is different from a Spanish Residency which grants you legal residency, paying your taxes in Spain. The NIE is assigned by the Spanish Foreign Office so that you are identified as a foreigner during these processes as well as during non-resident tax payments.
With the purchasing of real estate of 500,000 euros or more, non-EU citizens are eligible for the Spanish Golden Visa, granting them residency in Spain by the Spanish government. The Spanish Golden Visa is part of the Law of Entrepreneurs, encouraging investment in Spain.
Non-EU citizens have the opportunity to invest in popular, in-demand areas such as Malaga or Nerja, which promises business opportunities such as tourist rental and leasing of their property(s), in return for Spanish residency for themselves and their families.
Inheritance tax in Spain applies to everyone, regardless of whether you are a resident or non-resident. Tax becomes payable as soon as there is documentation to prove the transfer of inheritance (this can be money, property or any other asset) from a family member or a friend. Inheritance tax is commonly referred to in Spain as impuesto de sucesiones y donaciones – ISD.
Our guide to inheritance tax covers everything you need to know, from laws of succession, necessary documentation, to inheritance tax allowances. As inheritance tax rules can differ substantially from region to region, we offer the relevant information for our clients who are wanting to set up a life in Spain.
It is common knowledge that long-term rental contracts are used for regular, permanent residence, which falls under national law. However, it is also important to know that some short-term rental contract (usually for touristic uses) may come under some legislations depending on where the property is located.
Depending on the location area (e.g. Andalucia), some national legislations require that those who rent out their properties under short-term rental contracts must apply for a touristic license.
It is also necessary for both residents and non-residents of Spain who rent out their properties to pay taxes. The tax amount will vary depending on whether you are a resident or non-resident of Spain, as well as other aspects. You can find more information about this matter in our section Renting out property in Spain.
If you are new in Torrox, there is a set of obligatory formalities which you will typically need to complete, as for example, applying for a Spanish NIE. Once settled down in Torrox, your residential status will determine where and how much tax you pay every year.
Furthermore, working with an English speaking tax advisor on a regular basis helps to draw a map of your personal situation and act strategically. At Tejada Solicitors Torrox, we help our clients take good decisions and make the best out of their personal situation. Thus, we aim to establish a long and solid cooperation allowing us to grow together. We specialize in taxes and special allowances for non residents, inheritance tax, real estate and wealth management.
