INHERITANCE IN SPAIN
Inheritance law is complicated and often only understandable by experts. If the inheritance is due abroad, things become even more complicated, as each country has different inheritance law regulations. As experts, we take
care of the complete handling of all tax and legal formalities for your estate in Spain.
LAST WILL (bilingual)
Unfortunately, most people still think about their own estate planning late or not at all. Often there is not a will of the deceased. If you die, your heirs will also have to deal with all the paperwork. Make their work easier and leave you with an organized estate instead of a huge construction site. All conceivable problems can be easily avoided thanks to a will.
NIE (Número de Identificación de Extranjero)
The NIE is your identification number and also your tax number in Spain. You want to buy a property, open a bank account, start a business or register a car, nothing works without the NIE.
NON RESIDENTIAL TAX (modelo 210)

POWER OF ATTORNEY
Many people assume that close relatives (e.g. spouses or children) are automatically legally authorized to act. However, this assumtion is wrong. With a so- called general power of attorney, the authorized representative can act comprehensively on your behalf in the event of a serious illness, i.e. if you are no longer able to do so yourself.
Therefore, a power of attorney is also highly recommended
for family members.
A property register entry becomes relevant when it comes to purchasing a property. With the registration the property officially changes hands. Also if you make serious changes to your property, an entry in the property register is necessary.

render the deliveries ineffective.
