Spain has concluded double taxation treaties with several nations with which it has considerable trade and economic relations. Most European countries have double tax treaties with Spain.

Any individual or company resident or non-resident may deduct a foreign tax credit to avoid double taxation. So before paying any Spanish Tax possible double taxation treaties applicable to the taxpayer must be studied. We can provide you with a copy of any double taxation treaty signed between Spain and your own country.
