Spanish Inheritance by Michael Davies in Javea in a nutshell:
- Michael Davies the owner or the firm is a fluent English speaking Spanish probate lawyer with over 25 years experience.
- He is member of the law societies of Almería and Madrid.
- He is a well known Spanish inheritance tax expert . We will make sure that you pay the minimum amount of inheritance tax possible. Inheritance tax forms are presented by self assessment and the exemptions applicable vary depending on where in Spain the beneficiary is resident or on where the assets are situated if the beneficiary is non resident in Spain. To make things more complex we have had a few changes to the exemption rates in the last 5 years and to the way they apply to non-residents due to varios sentences by the E.C.J. and the Spanish Supreme court. We will also take into account the effect of the inheritance valuation on the future capital gains tax very often overlooked. We are well aware of all the Valencia region inheritance tax exemptions and the recent changes.
- We take care of everything from start to finish including inheritance tax registration and registration of the real estate.
