NO VAT on your home in Spain – Exclusively from top developer, Taylor Wimpey de España

Making it even easier to buy your dream home in Spain, top developer Taylor Wimpey de España, has announced that it will match the Spanish government’s 4% reduction in IVA (the equivalent of VAT) on new properties meaning that NO VAT will be due on new stock properties delivered before the end of 2011.

In an attempt to reduce the volume of stock property in Spain and stimulate the construction sector once again, the Spanish Government has decreed that IVA will be reduced by 50% until the end of the year, making purchasers of both first (mostly Spanish nationals) and second new homes liable for only 4% of the purchase price, a saving of €8,000 on a €200,000 home.

Commenting on the policy change which comes into immediate effect, Ignacio Osle, Sales& Marketing Manager of leading Spanish homebuilder with over 50 years experience, Taylor Wimpey de España, says:

“Whilst this action will not fully solve the problems of oversupply in some areas of the Spanish property market I believe it will stimulate action both with potential buyers who have been cautious to commit and the Spanish construction industry which is extremely keen to get moving once again.

“The Government has seen that price reductions by developers and agents in some cities of Spain such as Marbella and Alicante where there is oversupply has helped to reduce stock levels and it is hoped that by lowering prices through the halving of IVA will reduce excess stock even further.”

With an 86% customer satisfaction rating already, Taylor Wimpey de España is committed to assisting potential buyers further and is delighted to be able to match the reduction in IVA creating a rare time-limited opportunity for investors to purchase their dream home in Spain VAT free.

Fortuitously for second home buyers, the majority of new homes which meet the policy requirements are located in sought-after coastal destinations such as the Costa del Sol, Mallorca and Costa Blanca. Newly completed homes are now often priced equally to used homes yet owners enjoy the advantages of new electrical appliances, white goods and construction guarantees.

Ignacio Osle remarks that second hand homes in Spain are still liable for an 8% transfer of ownership tax. In addition not all the stock properties in the market, many owned by banks, qualify as new homes and are eligible for this VAT reduction as there could have been a prior transaction between the previous owner and the bank.

Ignacio Osle concludes,

“Now is the perfect time to invest in a new home in Spain. The reduction in IVA combined with the favourable Euro – Pound exchange rate mans that British buyers can make hefty savings without compromising on quality”.
