Puigdemont’s tough choice

Carles Puigdemont

The Spanish judge, Llarena, has just annulled the European arrest warrant against Puigdemont and the other four ex-consellers, who are in Belgium. The judge decided to withdraw these orders before the Belgian Justice decides within the next 14 days if he delivers them to the Spanish Justice or, on the contrary, considers that there are no grounds for criminal prosecution.

Llarena explains that, once those investigated have shown their willingness to return to Spain to stand for elections in Catalonia on December 21, the European arrest warrant can be revoked. However, the national detention order is maintained. Which means that as soon as Puigdemont and the other ex-counsellors step on Spanish territory they will be stopped.

Does this mean that the judge believes the original charges were unfounded and was concerned about being humiliated by the Belgian judicial system or is this an invitation from the Spanish Authorities for Puigdemont to become part of the election campaign which formally started today.

Nobody loves taxes, but knowing the rules can make all the difference!

Silvia Gabarro from GM Tax Consultantcy

On Friday the 1st of December we chatted with Sílvia Gabarró i Font from GM TAX CONSULTANCY about Spanish Taxes. Whatever your situation, if you are living here in Spain you need to hear this! Maybe you are about to Inherit money or set yourself up as an autonomo, now is the time to talk to an advisor to get yourself set up.

Silvia said “IVA is one of the most complicated taxes in Spain and if you are selling products to other EU nations, depending on the product will affect whether you should add IVA or not”

Also watch out if you are a non-EU citizen and are about inerit capital, you will fall under Spanish rules and not benefit from the significant Catalan rebate.

Instead of going to prison, you buy a hotel?

Despite Leo Messi being found guilty of tax evasion, he has proceeded to buy a four-star, €30 million hotel in Sitges. Wow! This major investment for Messi is a 77-room building, just behind the beach with a huge panoramic terrace overlooking the city. The hotel will be ran by the Majestic group, who curiously used their holding company Rosotel to close the deal.

It is very interesting that with recent events of Messi’s financial news, he remains in the media for making such a purchase. Jumping right back into life and spending money like it never happened. In regards to the location of Messi’s hotel location, Sitges is known as one of the area’s biggest LGBTQ communities. Is Messi trying to reach the LGBTQ or does he just like the area? Surely, he knows who his guests will be in the hotel, mainly tourists and the LGBTQ community.

The beach is an outstandingly beautiful area. We shall see how the outcome of Messi’s purchase will affect the area and the people of Sitges.
