If you own assets in Spain that exceed a net value of €700,000 you are liable for this tax. The first seven hundred thousand euros is a nil rate band and the excess is taxed following a sliding scale. If the property is mortgaged, this amount may be deducted as it is a liability. If you are liable for Wealth Tax, it is compulsory you appoint a fiscal representative in Spain.
