  • Expert Pedro Fernández spoke at the SUR and Linea Directa event on Wednesday

SUR in English and Linea Directa called on the expertise of Pedro Fernández this week for another essential expat advice seminar on the subject of taxation.

After the success of the seminar held at the recent Home Fair in Marbella, this week's event took place at the town hall offices in La Cala, in collaboration with the Mijas Foreign Residents Department.

Fernández, a tax partner at the Garrigues law firm who has been dealing with foreign residents' tax management affairs for 20 years, spoke of the different Spanish taxes that affect people of all nationalities who come to live in Spain, or who simply own a property here.

Issues such as inheritance tax and wealth tax - about which Fernández detailed the good, the bad and the controversial sides to the Spanish system - raised numerous questions and comments from the guests attending the event, who represented several nationalities.
