IBI Tax (Town Hall Rates)


This tax applies to both residents and non-residents. In some parts of Spain, it is known as SUMA.


This is a local tax levied by the town hall where your property is located. It is paid once a year (normally due in August through to November). It is equivalent to the UK’s Council tax.  It varies from one town hall to the next. It is based on the rateable value of your property (0.4 – 1.1% of cadastral value per annum); for cheap properties it can be as low as a few hundred euros whereas posh pads, in sought-after areas, may command a couple thousand euros.


We can set this tax on your behalf as a standing order.


Legal fees: minimum of €70 (plus VAT)
