Beckham Tax Law
Experts in the Beckham Tax Law
One of the most advantageous tax laws for expats in Spain is the Beckham Law, which gives expats important benefits.
The Beckham Law, known as the “Régimen Especial de Trabajadores Desplazados,” is a special tax regime for expatriates or displaced workers. It was approved in 2014.
This law is named after the former English football player David Beckham because he was the first one to benefit from it.
This law allows workers to change their tax residency and be taxed as non-residents at the general rate of 24% (instead of the general scale ranging from 19%-45%) for their first year of arrival as well as the following five years.
Our tax attorneys in Spain can help you benefit from this law as soon as you arrive in Spain.
