Tax advice

Post New Topic

Hi there

I am moving to Malaga next year and looking for some advice on taxes etc for myself and the business. Ive been researching this for a month now and I am completely lost - the business is based in and operates solely in UK so my understanding is that the business tax will be for UK and my personal tax will be for Spain.

Can anyone recommend a decent accountant (or any other business owners who can advise)?

Thanks

Take some time and get to know the zones of the city in a preview trip if you can.
