These four simple words in Spanish ('with a VAT invoice, please') can save you a massive amount of money when you pay non-resident taxes in Spain.
Following new EU regulation, all non-resident EU/EEA property owners who lease property, are entitled to deduct from their quarterly tax bill all property-related expenses (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway tax residents may also benefit from these generous tax deductions). That is quite a lot of money you can offset, greatly mitigating your tax bill. If you are not EU-resident, you cannot benefit from this.
This is understood as expenses that contribute towards the upkeep of your Spanish property.
Anyone handing you an invoice without VAT, is not tax-deductible. Make no mistake, as you cannot offset this expense you are in fact paying for the tax of this other person. I don't know about you, but I've never fancied paying for other people's taxes out of my own pocket...
You may claim as tax relief all the following expenses, providing you have been issued with a proper VAT invoice (till receipts from supermarkets or petrol stations are not acceptable).
