What is the Beckham Rule?

The Beckham Rule is a special tax regime for expatriates. It was introduced as an incentive to attract talented and qualified workers to Spain.

Under the Beckham Rule regime, foreign workers who move to Spain and become residents are considered non-tax residents for tax purposes. Therefore, the tax owed on the first €600,000 of Spanish income is fixed at 24%. In addition, non-resident status means the Wealth Tax and new Solidarity Tax will apply only to Spanish assets rather than those held in other countries. 

An expatriate’s descendants under 25 years of age (or any age if they are disabled) and their spouse can benefit from the Beckham rule, provided certain conditions are met. Talk to one of our team to find out more.
