On 30 November, the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg organized in their premises a conference about “Acquisition of immovable property in Spain/Belgium: fiscal consequences and estate planning aspects”. The presentation was given by Rafaël Alvarez Campa, associate teacher at the Ateliers des FUCAM (Université Catholique de Louvain-Mons) and member of Wantiez, Bailleux, Causin & Janssen, a partner company of the Chamber.
Rafaël Alvarez Campa presented the tax implications of buying a property in Spain for a Belgian resident, and vice versa in detail. He also highlighted issues relating to inheritance tax in both countries and estate planning for Belgian residents with assets in Spain.
After the intervention, attendees had the chance to ask questions. A large audience attended the seminar.
