Ceuta and Melilla

Gift tax Ceuta and Melilla

“Comunidades Autónomas” have their own inheritance and gift tax regulations as a result of the Spanish State ceding the tax revenue of inheritance and gift tax to the “Comunidades Autónomas”, along with some regulatory autonomy to adapt tax to the particular circumstances of each.

This means that most of them have ruled new (and huge) benefits compared to those established by the Spanish State.

While the tax scheme and regime is the same in all parts of Spain, the “Comunidades Autónomas” took advantage of their new powers to fix higher thresholds, or different rates or direct reductions on the amount to be paid (and sometimes all of these) to benefit close relatives of the deceased or disabled people. There are also benefits that help promote local business, farming, etc. as well as in the acquisition of cultural assets of each Comunidad Autónoma.

However, the regulations change quite frequently so it is necessary to check the regulation in force at the time the tax is due.

Ceuta and Meilla have ruled a reduction of 50% when either the gifted immovable assets are located in Ceuta or Melilla or the recipient has their habitual residence there.
