Judge Pablo Llarena announced the continued detention without bail for the former vice-president of the Government of Catalonia, Oriol Junqueras. Also detained are the former interior minister Joaquim Forn and the leaders of ANC Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuixart. For the other 6 ex-counsellors of Catalonia who are in prison, the judge agreed to bail of 100,000 euros for each one of them. Shortly after noon the independentist organizations ANC and Òmnium, have paid the necessary financial bond allowing the dismissed consellers to leave the prison this afternoon. The magistrate has imposed weekly appearances at a local court, prohibition to leave the country and withdrawal of passport. The magistrate warned them that failure to comply with any of the obligations imposed would trigger their immediate entry into prison. The judge considers that there is no risk of escape, but commented that the risk of further criminal acts by the four remaining detainees justifies further detention.

Many US entrepreneurs come to Spain and form a Sociedad Limitada (SL) to operate their new company. An SL can be the right structure for certain companies as they offer limited liability and some fiscal advantages. However many that set up SL´s in Spain don´t realize that the IRS wants to know about your SL and the profits and dividends that the SL generates. A US owned Sociedad Limitada could be considered a CFC (Controlled Foreign Corporation) which requires the annual filing of a complicated and time consuming tax form called the 5471. Certain types of the SL´s income may be considered Subpart F income which can be taxed in the US. Subpart F income rules can be quite complicated.
Failure to file the 5471 on time can result in a $10,000 fine unrelated to any tax liabilities arising from the form. Bank accounts and investments the company holds need to be reported in a business owners annual FBAR filing and some investments may fall under PFIC (Passive Foreign Investment Company) rules. Taking these rules into consideration, in addition to local Spanish reporting rules, many US entrepreneurs in Spain may want to set up as Autonomo during the early stages of their startups. If you already have an SL and haven´t been paying attention to the US tax rules concerning foreign corporations it is in your best interest to get into compliance.

We have been getting to know some of our Favourite DJs
Slipmatt. Founding member of SL2, best known for the massive house tracks “On A Ragga tip”, “Djs take control” both of which were huge in 1992 and continue to be played to this day.
Our Conclusion: Back in the day Matt was probably one of those guys who danced like Keith Flint in Firestarter but now has become civilised and shops in Waitrose.
Eamon Downes from Liquid. Now living in Rome creating and producing tracks, his original hits “Sweet Harmony” followed by “Liquid is Liquid” remain firm favourites for old-school ravers like us!
Our Conclusion: Eamon looks too young to have been playing in the 90s!! where he looks good. He’s Dj’d all over and now and has become a family man!
Jon Fitz, DJ, Musician and producer. Worked extensively with Jason Herd and produced some massive hits in the mid 2000s including “I just can’t get enough featuring the vocals of Abigail Bailey” and “I like the way you move”, where he was the bass player for the Body Rockers.
Our Conclusion: Jon uses lots of haircare products and despite being a house Dj now loves his disco. We are waiting for “Abba the mixes”
Seamus Harji, DJ, Producer. From his early days using an Atari, he developed his craft and then ended up producing in partnership with Paul Emmanuel which resulted in some massive tracks including “Booty luv” and “Take me away”.
Our Conclusion: Seamus is a master technician and an ear for hearing disco samples and turning them into house classics. Rumour has it, if you are invited round to his place ask him for a Vindaloo.
