Four ways to save on property tax in Spain

Four ways to save on property tax in Spain. Property tax in Spain is notoriously high, both on purchase and during ownership. But, what if it were possible to reduce that bill? And if so, how would you go about it? 

In this article, we address these questions. We also look at reducing your liability for non-resident, wealth or inheritance tax as a UK resident on your existing Spanish property. And the possibility of transferring existing ownership to a company.
